SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT THE VETERANS SERVICE BONUS…Last November, an overwhelming majority of Ohio voters – more than 70 percent – voted to provide a modest payment to the men and women who served our country during the Iraq, Afghanistan and Persian Gulf wars. This Veteran Service Bonus is an honored tradition in our state: Voters approved similar financial recognition for veterans after World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam.
*This bonus pays $100 per month to any member of the military who served in the Persian Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan wars, up to a maximum of $1,000.
*Service Members who served in other parts of the world during these wars are eligible for $50 per month of service, up to $500 total.
*The families of service members who gave their lives in these wars can recieve $5,000.
