The PA Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA) reminds Veterans who suffer from service-connected blindness to apply for the Blind Veterans Pension. The program provides eligible Pennsylvania Veterans with a $150 per-month pension.
“October is Blindness Awareness Month, a key time to remind everyone that the DMVA offers a Blind Veterans Pension,” said Maj. Gen. (ret.) Eric Weller, deputy adjutant general of Veterans Affairs. “Veterans often pay an incredible price – like service-connected blindness – while serving our country and protecting our freedoms. They deserve this benefit and should apply to start receiving their monthly premium.”
