Explanation

Why is there so much confusion and misunderstanding about pension benefits available to veterans and their families? First, the very name of the benefit itself causes confusion. "Improved Pension Benefit." Everyone in America thinks you only get a pension benefit from your employer after a significant number of years of service, usually 20 or 30. Even the military has a 20 or 30 year retirement pension benefit. No one believes there are any benefits due after only 90 days of employment. But there is a benefit for our Veterans and their widows.... AND RIGHTFULLY SO!
