Ohio veterans can use app for benefits information

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio veterans can now use a mobile app to find information about available benefits.

The Ohio Department of Veterans Services unveiled the app this week. Department Director Tim Gorrell says it enables veterans to find out quickly what major benefits they've earned and how and where to apply for them

There is also a portion of the app that provides contact information for each of Ohio's county veterans' service offices by name, zip code or location and map and directional information. The same contact, map and directional information is available for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs facilities in Ohio.

The app is available free from the Google Play and iTunes stores, by searching the key words "Ohio veteran."

The department's www.ohiovet.gov website contains a link to the stores.
