Eligiblity for Veterans receiving benefits.

How do I apply to get a stimulous check if I receive VA benefits and did not file taxes in 2918 or 2019? Am I even eligible?8

Hi Rikie, Fantastic Question!

Veterans receiving benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs for VA disability benefits, pensions, and survivors’ benefits will be treated the same as those receiving SS, SSDI, SSI benefits and do qualify for stimulus checks. For instance, a veteran whose only income is a veterans’ disability payment is eligible as long as they are not the dependent of another taxpayer. - Military Benefits Info

There's no action required on your part but you can check and track your payment on the IRS website. Go to the IRS website and use the "Get My Payment"](https://www.irs.gov/coronavirus/economic-impact-payments) tool to find you money. Thanks

Amazing veteran's essay about stress transitioning to civilian life

This is an incredible piece about transitioning from the military to civilian life and how #stressful it can be: "Transitions out are never easy. But by acting as if mine should be, I ensured it was difficult. I had tried to leap into civilian life rather than bridge the gap, only discovering on the way down that the distance was too far."

It's about what might feel awkward for #veterans in civilian workplaces especially and the health and stress problems the author faced, and about how reconnecting with the VA helped. I love the image of "a shopping spree of self-care" and his starting to feel a connection with the older vets.

Highly recommended!

Thank you, Fallen Heroes and their families.

My children have never once doubted that they would be free to choose the life they wish to lead. To speak their minds. To pursue life, liberty, and happiness. This freedom was hard-fought and extracted a high price.
I am in awe of those who volunteered to answer the call to arms. I am appreciative of all who fought and humbled by those that made the ultimate sacrifice. I am profoundly saddened that the loss and sacrifice continue to be carried every day by their loved ones.
Thank you seems so insufficient, and yet those are the words that rise up. Thank you. Thank you for my freedom and my children's carefree expectation that this has always been so and will always be. And lets all of us strive to do what we can to support their families in every way we can. Our veterans and their families don't just deserve this, they have earned it. And no-one more so than the loved ones who mourn the sacrifices of our fallen heroes every day. Lets not just commit to memorial day, but memorial year.
God bless you all. God bless America. and thank you. #veterans, #memorialDay #gratitude #humility

Veteran staring over

I am a US Army veteran who is looking to start over. I have been a student pastor for over a decade and would love a job that values dedication, compassion, loyalty and hard work. #veterans

Just want to throw in my two cents here: Bob, first off, thank you so much for serving our country. I think that is still significantly under appreciated. Second, I would very much agree with Mark and see what the CH31 program can offer. You've got some great skills and are interested in a field that really has legs (so much is in danger of being taken over by AI in the next couple decades) and helping people manage through tough times will be huge.

In addition, you may want to consider social work or psychology. Depending on how much school you are interested in or willing to take on, both of these could be highly beneficial.

Best of luck!

Eric

Construction is down during the pandemic, Marty. You may want to look in to another field.

Great to know you received yours. Unemployed 2019 and trying to make a dollar is why I move from Texas to Illinois. It’s where I come from. Moving, well to find my 2018 filed tax return seems to be a problem at the moment. Can’t seem to find it amongst all this clutter. As one would think. They should be able to identify me with my SSN. The VA is another nightmare story. Have to reregister in order to use it. What in gigs name is the states doing to and for us combat veterans. Just sadness and misery coming back to Illinois. God help us all.
