 ::  Iraq War Ohio Veteran Bonus    Minimize

COLUMBUS – Our state and nation will mark Veterans Day tomorrow. In Ohio, this occasion is an appropriate time to reach out to all Iraq War veterans and make sure that they have applied for the Ohio Veterans Bonus – the deadline for those who served in Iraq is Dec. 31, 2014.

To be eligible for this component of the Ohio Veterans Bonus, eligible veterans and Ohioans serving on active duty must have been boots-on-the-ground in the country of Iraq from March 19, 2003 through Dec. 31, 2011.

Through October 31, the Ohio Veterans Bonus program has paid 84,453 applications that total more than $68.3 million in direct payments. While some of these applications represent multiple periods of eligibility, service in Iraq represents 24,091 of this total, the most of any period of eligible service. In October Bonus applications for service in Iraq showed an increase of nearly 57 percent over September. Currently, the Bonus team is approving more than 135 applications each week.

The Ohio Veterans Bonus will continue to be awarded to those who served in Afghanistan, or anywhere else in the world, since Oct. 7, 2001. Eligibility for the Bonus will end when the President declares an end to the war in Afghanistan.
