HARRISBURG – Rep. Ryan Mackenzie (R-Lehigh/Berks) will host his next assistance day for veterans on Friday, Sept. 8, in his district office in Lower Macungie. During these special hours, veterans can meet with an outreach specialist from the American Legion to have their questions answered about benefits and services they have earned.
“We have had great feedback from the veterans taking advantage of this special service,” said Mackenzie. “I encourage veterans in the district who need assistance or have questions to schedule an appointment to sit down and talk with our specialist.”
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.
