The Department of Defense has extended the eligibility period for the Military OneSource program. Formerly 180 days, the new timeframe for OneSource eligibility is one year after honorable discharge or retirement from service.
The OneSource program is centered around helping new veterans adjust to civilian life. They have career help, insurance advice, and counseling for the veterans and their families, just to name a few of their transitional services.
This extension went into effect on August 13 of this year, and it is a rare bit of positive VA news. Newly minted veterans can always use a hand getting back into “Civilian Mode.”
