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.

But there is a benefit for our Veterans and their widows.... AND RIGHTFULLY SO!
