Schweyer’s office hosting veterans outreach Feb. 17

ALLENTOWN, Feb. 3 – Area veterans and their families who would like to learn about the benefits and programs available to them are invited to state Rep. Peter Schweyer’s monthly support program at his district office in Allentown.

“Many veterans aren’t using all of the benefits they are entitled to for their service to their country because they may not know about them,” said Schweyer, D-Lehigh. “This is a great opportunity for area veterans to learn about these benefits and receive assistance in the application process. I encourage anyone who served to call and make an appointment to ensure they are maximizing what they’ve earned.”

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

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.
