Veterans interested in applying for new educational benefits and learning more about what education and job resources are available to them are encouraged to attend an upcoming workshop.
The Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs will be hosting the workshop on May 16 from 10 am to noon at the Job Center of Lake County in Waukegan (1 Genesee Street). Staff will be on hand to help veterans apply for educational benefits - veterans should bring their DD-214 and direct deposit information to put on the forms.
In order to qualify, veterans should be at least 35 years old but no older than 60, be unemployed, have anything other than a dishonorable discharge, not be eligible for any other education benefit program and not be enrolled in a federal or state job training program.
For more information, check out this flyer or contact the Job Center at 847-377-3450.
