The blog at USA.gov recently included a helpful guide to help veterans “Tackle Debt, Scams and Fraud”.
The article compiled expert information from Marietta Jelks, editor-in-chief of the Consumer Action Handbook, and Holly Petraeus, of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
Some of their advice included getting a free annual credit report, using free financial resources specifically available to veterans, tips for dealing with debt collectors, information about obtaining loans and more.
If you’re a veteran suffering from a service-connected ailment that prevents you from working, you may be eligible for compensation. The West Virginia Veterans’ Disability Lawyers of Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, can help you build a solid case and get you the benefits you deserve.
