Celebrating Military Appreciation Month

Posted on 05/01/23 by Mary Michaels

When you’re a U.S. veteran with more than 40,000 organizations trying to help you, it can be tough to find the right information. AARP’s Veterans and Military Families initiative brings together free, valuable resources and programs to help navigate life’s transitions at AARP.org/Veterans.

Veteran & Military Caregiving
Caregivers of veterans start younger and care longer. AARP provides several free tools to help you on your caregiver journey. Visit: AARP.org/VetsCareGuide.

Fighting Fraud with the Veterans Fraud Center
Veterans and service members are 40% more likely to lose money to scams than civilians. Our new Veterans Fraud Center has free resources, like the Watchdog Alert Handbook for Veterans at AARP.org/VetsFraudCenter.

Veterans & Military Spouses Job Center
Get FREE online courses, a job-search toolkit tailored to military and their spouses, resume tools, and access to AARP’s resume builder service and job board with a ‘Veterans Wanted’ box at AARP.org/VetsJobCenter.

Connecting to Earned Benefits
Our Veterans Health Benefits Navigator helps veterans and caregivers find the right info to enroll in health plans from VA, Medicare and more at AARP.org/VetsHealthNavigator.

Mental Health Support Pocket Guide for Veteran and Military Caregivers from AARP & the Elizabeth Dole Foundation: www.AARP.org/SelfCareGuide
