HARRISBURG – Rep. Ryan Mackenzie (R-Lehigh/Berks) is hosting veterans assistance hours on Friday, Oct. 11, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at his district office with an outreach specialist from the American Legion for veterans to discuss the benefits and services they have earned.
“This is a great opportunity to get personalized service from someone who knows and understands the VA system,” said Mackenzie. “Don’t wait to sign up; time slots fill up fast.”
Services available to veterans and their dependents include assistance with compensation, pension, death benefits, education and health care, as well as any issues pertaining to veterans benefits. Veterans do not need to be a member of the American Legion to receive these services.
Appointments to talk with an outreach specialist are offered the second Friday of each month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Mackenzie’s district office at the Lower Macungie Township Administration Building, 3402 Brookside Road, Macungie. Anyone interested in speaking with the department service officer should call the office at 610-965-9933 to schedule an appointment.
