Schweyer’s office hosting veterans outreach Jan. 20

ALLENTOWN, Jan. 6 –  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 monthly support program at his district office in Allentown.

“Veterans are entitled to benefits for their service and dedication to our country and there may be some which they may not know about,” said Schweyer, D-Lehigh. “This is a great opportunity for area veterans to learn about these benefits and receive assistance in the application process. My office is pleased to offer this outreach every month.”

A representative from the American Legion will be available for in-person appointments from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 20 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.

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.
