Assistance for Veterans in Arkansas

Posted on 09/30/22 by The AARP Bulletin

About one-tenth of Arkansas adults are military veterans, and AARP is working to help them attain available benefits.

Along with offering education and outreach, AARP is a sponsor of Feed the Vets, a food bank for veterans, guardsmen, reservists, military retirees and their families in the Little Rock suburb of Cabot. AARP provided a $1,000 donation and $1,000 in toiletries to the organization.

To get involved with AARP’s efforts to help veterans, visit aarp.org/ar. The state gives certain veterans benefits such as a tax break on military retirement income, discounts at state parks and on hunting and fishing licenses, and monetary aid for higher education.

Visit veterans.arkansas.gov/benefits/state-benefits or aarp.org/veterans for information.
