Next monthly veterans outreach June 17 at Schweyer’s office

ALLENTOWN, June 3 – Area veterans, who may not be aware of the services or benefits available to them or their families, are encouraged to participate in state Rep. Peter Schweyer’s next monthly support program at his district office in Allentown.

A representative from the American Legion will be available for in-person appointments from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, June 17 at Schweyer’s district office, 1501 Lehigh St., Suite 206. The representative will be able to discuss pensions and other compensation, as well as education, health care and death benefits. The representative is available for appointments on the third Friday of every month.

“We need to ensure our veterans have the care and support they need following their service to our country,” Schweyer said. “This is a great opportunity for veterans to learn about all of the available benefits and programs and receive assistance with the application process.”

Legion membership is not required; however, anyone interested in speaking with the adviser should schedule appointments by contacting Schweyer’s office at 610-791-6270. Masks are required and CDC guidelines must be followed during the appointment.
