MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 9, 2013 04:16 PM
From: Representative Neal P. Goodman
To: All House members
Subject: Exempt Veterans' Benefits from Income Eligibility Calculations for State Programs
 
In the near future, I will re-introduce a legislative package from last session to exempt veterans’ benefits from income eligibility calculations for state programs.

Through the years, various benefits, such as service-connected disability payments and pensions, have been authorized by the legislature to thank and honor veterans for their service and sacrifice on behalf of our country. Unfortunately, these benefits sometimes result in disqualifying veterans for other state programs because they put them over the income eligibility limit. I am introducing this legislative package to ensure that no veterans’ benefit (from any source) is counted as income for the purpose of calculating income eligibility for any Commonwealth benefit program, tax exemption, fee exemption, rebate, or other state program.
