SYCAMORE – State Representative Jeff Keicher, R-Sycamore, is offering a new online resource for Illinois veterans and their families to learn about the full range of state benefits and services they may be eligible for. Representative Keicher’s comprehensive “Illinois Veterans’ Benefits” brochure is available to view or download on his website, www.repkeicher.com. Constituents who do not have access to the internet may request a copy of the brochure be mailed to them by calling Representative Keicher’s office at (815) 748-3494.
“One of my most important priorities is ensuring that our veterans have access to all the benefits they have earned in service to our country,” Representative Keicher said. “Many veterans are not aware that some of these benefits are available to them, particularly with regard to employment, educational opportunities, and veterans’ homebuyer assistance. I hope that everyone who has a friend or loved one that has served in a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces will help us reach as many veterans as possible throughout the DeKalb, Kane and Boone County area with this informational brochure.”
The brochure also includes the toll-free number veterans can call to discuss specific questions or issues with the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs at 1-800-437-9824. For questions or more information, please contact Representative Keicher’s office at (815) 748-3494.
