Currently Oregon is one of the top states for veterans receiving benefits, but less than half our veterans seek services.

 

Eric Belt, the Director of the Department of Veterans Affairs, talked about it last week at a meeting of the Senate committee on veterans.

 

"Oregon has been a top ten states in terms of compensation and pensions received by veterans.  Only 3 in 10 veterans receive services from the V-A.  So this is a great opportunity for use to reach out to the other 7 in 10 eligible for benefits."

 

The Veterans Committee is going to try to get more veterans to seek services.

 

In recent years, Oregon has slightly increased its veterans using services and has greatly increased its compensation from the federal government.
