New Benefits Available to Some Jobless SD Veterans

Military Member

 

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota Labor Secretary Pam Roberts says unemployed veterans may qualify for additional education, vocational rehabilitation and other benefits under a federal law passed last year.
Roberts says the federal law expands education and training opportunities for veterans and provides tax credits to employers who hire veterans with service-connected disabilities.
She says one program offers some jobless veterans 12 months of training for occupations in high demand.
The labor secretary also says veterans who previously completed a vocational rehabilitation program and have used the initial 26 weeks of unemployment benefits may qualify for an additional 12 months of vocational rehabilitation benefits.
