Everything always comes down to money.
Whether you live a life of minimalism or grandeur, it’s impossible to get away from the little green bills that are connected to every item in your household.
It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it does make us think. And one of the things it makes us think about is: who earns what, and who earns more.
Whether you’re someone who has gone through military service already, or you’re someone who is considering doing it now, the same question is probably running through your mind. You want to know whether veterans earn more money in the workplace. You want to know whether being a veteran helps you out financially down the road, more so than nonveterans.
And, the million-dollar answer is: yes.
Why veterans earn more money.
Recent studies have gathered that U.S veterans tend to earn higher wages in the workplace in comparison to nonveterans.
There’s a number of speculative reasons for this. But, one of the main reasons is that veterans are more equipped for the workplace, and thus deserve the higher pay. Veterans gain certain highly valued skills during their years in service. And those skills allow them to fill workplace roles better than nonveterans who haven’t honed those same abilities.
Additionally, veterans tend to be older when they enter the workforce. And with age, simply comes experience. Life and professional experience can be invaluable in the workplace. Employers know this and are often willing to pay extra to get the candidates with the better experience.
Veterans earn more than just money.
Those who have gone through U.S military service, don’t just earn more money. They also earn more through benefits.
U.S veterans earn special benefits like pensions, health coverage, and G.I. Bill stipends. These benefits help veterans with living costs, as return for all the time they dedicated to helping our country and keeping us safe.
Veterans earn healthcare coverage, too.
This is probably one of the biggest benefits that veterans earn.
Healthcare can be expensive. Especially, when you’re older and no longer working. Luckily, veterans can get financial support when it comes to their elderly care.
At Aurora Home Care, we offer a special Vet Assist program. This full coverage program helps veterans and surviving spouses cover the cost of professional healthcare services. Costs that you might otherwise not be able to afford.
