Martha Coakley on Homeland Security
Under Martha's guidance, in 2009, the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office launched a website and a resource guide for veterans to shepher benefits appeals process and provide vital, tailored information about medical care, death benefits, financial assistance, education, housing, and employment rights.
"The residents of Massachusetts owe a debt of gratitude to all of those who have sacrificed by serving our country," said Coakley. "We hope that this material will assist veterans and their families in easily informing themselves about their benefits and rights and the help that is available if they find themselves in need."
The guide covers laws designed to protect veterans from discrimination in areas such as employment and medical care and to help veterans avoid foreclosure and credit problems during their military service. It also offers tips on how veterans can maximize housing, healthcare, disability, employment and education benefits.
