Give Our Veterans What They Deserve

This is an item worthy of your attention:

H.R. 333 - a.k.a. The Disabled Veterans Tax Termination Act

Summary: Permit retired members of the Armed Forces who have a service-connected disability rated less than 50 percent to receive concurrent payment of both retired pay and veterans’ disability compensation, to eliminate the phase-in period for concurrent receipt, to extend eligibility for concurrent receipt to chapter 61 disability retirees with less than 20 years of service.

This bill was introduced in the 110th Session, but went nowhere. It was reintroduced on January 8, 2009, but it is stuck in committee again. How much deliberation does a simple bill like this need? They've already had two years to discuss it.

Call or email your representatives today and let them know you want our veterans to get the benefits they deserve now.
