Hiring Veterans Resources

Companies can add value through tangible and intangible benefits by hiring veterans. In addition to adding well-prepared and highly determined members to the staff, the benefits of hiring veterans include:

  • The military pays for an active duty member’s final move
  • Most veterans leaving the military receive five years of health care services
  • G.I. Bill enables veterans to pursue further education
  • Additional tax credits

For more information, contact the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency at 517.284.5298 or via email. Visit the MVAA website at www.michiganveterans.com.
