Ohio War Veterans Can Apply for BonusPosted Oct. 22, 2010
Ohio veterans who served in the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan or Iraq wars are now able to apply for the veterans' bonus approved by voters. The county clerk's and attorney general's offices will offer notarization services to make this application process simpler for local veterans.
The bonus program offers eligible veterans who served in the Persian Gulf, Iraq or Afghanistan wars $100 for each month of active duty service up to $1,000. Eligible veterans serving on active duty elsewhere in the world during these wars may receive $50 per month of service, up to a maximum of $500. An eligible veteran may combine his or her service bonuses for a maximum payment of $1,500. The families of those killed during these conflicts also may be eligible for compensation.
To simplify the application process, notarization will be offered at the four Stark County Clerk of Courts' locations.
