Schweyer’s office hosting veterans outreach March 17

ALLENTOWN, March 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.

“Veterans selflessly serve to protect our country, and we need to do everything we can to support them once they return home,” said Schweyer, D-Lehigh. “This outreach is a great opportunity for area veterans to learn about benefits and programs which they may not be aware of and receive assistance in the application process. I encourage anyone who served to call and make an appointment.”

A representative from the American Legion will be available for in-person appointments from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, March 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 an appointment by contacting Schweyer’s office at 610-791-6270.
