Government Funding For Disabled Veterans
Are you a Canadian veteran? The National Benefit Authority (NBA) thanks you for serving our great nation. Your bravery in accepting risk and living with unique circumstances ensures all Canadians can live good lives.
Unfortunately, the quality of life that your service earns is lessened by the lack of government support available to people with disabilities. This is especially disheartening when Canadian veterans do not receive the support they need according to their unwarranted disabilities.
This week Disability Living (http://www.disabilityliving.ca/) is discussing the government support options available for veterans with disabilities. Do you or someone you know have a disability as a result of national service? Read, learn, and share the NBA’s daily blog.

Comments from Last Week’s Blog Series: Mental Health Issues in Canada
– Are Mental Health Services Underfunded? – CJ says “I think that mental health issues are not addressed often enough and it is hard on the family if they cannot get help for the person who needs it the most.”
– Housing for Individuals with Mental Illness – Bob shares, “There are numerous Ontario Disability (ODSP) recipients in Peterborough that live in the squalor of dilapidated rooming homes… Their ODSP housing allowance amount doesn’t allow them to get better housing.”
Disability Living wishes Canadian veterans good luck getting the money owed to them by government. As an agency helping individuals successfully apply for the disability tax credit, the NBA strives to ensure people in similar situations receive money they are entitled to.
If you suffer from a severe and prolonged disability, contact the National Benefit Authority to discuss your qualifications for government funding.
