American stimulus package bill presents new opportunities for more WWII Filvet benefits

Manila (17 February) -- The US stimulus package bill could spawn more benefits for Filipino WWII veterans, a top Philippine veterans affairs advocate said.

Assistant Secretary Jerry Adevoso of the Office of the Presidential Assistant for Veterans Affairs (OPAVA) explained in a TV interview that the provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestments Act of 2009 does not rule out any additional ameliorations.

By the way it was written, Adevoso said authors of the stimulus package could be thinking of giving Filvets educational, medical or burial assistance in the future.

This is why Adevoso strongly believes that the government's advocacy for Filvets benefits must continue.

Malacanang lauded the passage of the stimulus package bill recognizes the service and grants lump sum payments to Filipino WWII veterans.

US-based Filvets stand to get US$15,000 while those residing in the Philippine will receive US$9,000 once President Obama signed the stimulus package bill into law.

The Philippines will be setting up help desks that will assist Filvets in claiming lump sum payments from the US government. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
