The VeteransPlus Program offers a choice of financial wellness options to members of VeteransPlus, which will provide opportunities to improve their current situation, plan for their future, and protect their good name.
By teaming with Service Organizations, Employee Associations, and Service Members and families, members will engage VeteransPlus through a number of venues including but not limited to: associations meetings, educational seminars, websites, newsletters, public events and various other outreach and advertising initiatives. VeteransPlus will facilitate the exchange of information and answer questions from our potential members and their family.
In addition, VeteransPlus will provide detailed brochures of the services available and how these services can be accessed. The VeteransPlus Program intends to deliver these financial products and services through our robust and informative website, which will allow members to select and enroll in each service as needed. Either online or through one of our toll free telephone numbers, VeteransPlus will be there.
Currently, there is no other group or organization in the United States that offers a complete line of financial services to our Veterans, enlisted personnel and their families that will improve and enrich their lives.
Several Veteran Service organizations offer assistance in accessing government Veteran’s benefits and other national groups provide travel, moving, and food discounts. Some offer mortgage, refinancing and reality services. However, no ONE group or organization offers the products VeteransPlus provides, which will enhance the lives of our current Veterans, enlisted personnel and their families.
VeteransPlus is on a mission to serve our country’s Veterans as well as our country’s current service members and their families. Our services are based on the financial needs of our members. Given the current economy, our military involvement worldwide and the financial burden placed on our Veterans and their families, we feel our services offer the best solution now.
Over the years America’s Armed Forces and their families have perpetuated a noble concept that lies at the bedrock of the American experience and they are bonded by a unity of mission, a commitment to service, and a dedication to serve all citizens who call America home.
In these challenging economic times we continually hear about bail-outs for corporations and recovery assistance for state and municipal governments. While VeteransPlus applauds any effort that will make a difference for this great nation, and help keep her free, it seems to us that one very important element has been overlooked.
Although there are varying opinions regarding where to fix the blame for our current circumstances: Wall Street; Pennsylvania Avenue; or Main Street, one thing we can all agree on is that all of these streets have been kept safe and every resident free by the men and women who have worn the nations uniform.
These men and women have exemplified the quiet virtues and dynamic strengths that represent the very best of what it means to be an American, regardless of where you live or what your economic situation may be.
We at VeteransPlus believe it is time to not only recognize the sacrifice of so many, but to serve those who have so proudly served us, by insuring that the very freedoms they defended are not denied to them.
Through your involvement with VeteransPlus, we will be able to provide quality life changing financial services to not only our servicemen and women but to their families left behind to deal with the stress and anxiety of deployment. We can ease the financial burden and offer services that will provide comfort to the greatest in need.
By building a free of charge membership base, comprised of current and former members of the US Armed Forces (USAF) and their families, VeteransPlus has leveraged quantity discounts and advantages for those members. These services include educational information regarding financial wellness, information security and money management in order to promote stability.
