Web site offers info for vets called to duty
: I am being called to active duty and have questions about my employer-provided pension and health benefits. Where can I get more information about my benefits?
Answer: The U.S. Department of Labor Veterans' Employment and Training Service has information for veterans, National Guard or reservists who may be activated for military service. National Guard and Reserve members called to active duty, and their civilian employers, have certain rights and responsibilities under the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act has developed a fact sheet and an interactive computer program, the USERRA Advisor, that address the rights and responsibilities of individuals and their employers under the law. These tools, and other USERRA information, can be found on the VETS Web site, www.dol.gov/vets.
If you have questions about your benefits as a veteran, call Fred Ballard at the Veterans Affairs at 433-0049 or visit the VA Web site at www.va.gov/hawaii
