Interviewer:  What other types of benefit programs can veterans receive?

Becky Chowleka:  There’s lots of veteran programs. Most of the information out there is for our service connected injuries in healthcare, but there’s also healthcare programs, Tricare, things that veterans can also receive. There’s also low and discount prescription drug plans available to veterans. If you’re a POW, of course there’s even more programs that you’re going to be eligible for.

We always encourage our veterans to work with their veterans service officer to see which program that can quality for, as well as their spouses who may also be able to qualify for programs as well if their veteran spouse dies before them.
