WSWVETS MEETING FOR 2015: THERE WILL BE NO MEETINGS IN JULY AND AUGUST. CHECK THIS SITE FOR THE SPEAKER IN SEPTEMBER.
VCAT HAS A NEW PILOT PROGRAM 'BIKES FOR VETS' New 7 speed bikes were presented to 4 veterans to be used by them for getting to work and school. The success of this program will be monitored and input from each vet on use and health benefits will be compiled. Thanks to Bob and Bill these 4 veterans have transportation that will save them $$$. It is calculated that riding the bike will save approximately $420 per month over owning a car.
Veterans may not realize that they do not need new evidence in order to resubmit a previously denied claim for PTSD benefits related to military sexual trauma (MST), according to a new report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO). for details click here
2015 NOTICE TO ALL EMPLOYEERS
The Hire More Heroes Act (H.R. 22) amends the Internal Revenue Code to allow employers to exclude employees who get their health care under TRICARE or from the Veterans Administration from the calculations used to determine whether an employer is an applicable large employer and therefore subject to the employer mandate under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This would apply to all months beginning after December 31, 2013, thus providing retroactive and prospective relief from the ACA.
