Post 9/11 Veteran Service Bonus
The 2022 Legislature passed the first-ever Veterans Omnibus Bill that included funding for a service bonus payable to eligible Veterans who served from 9/11/2001 to 8/30/2021. The application opened July 7, 2022 and will run until June 30, 2024, or until funds have been exhausted. There are three tiers of this bonus: $600, $1,200 and $2,000. For more information, visit here. To apply, visit here

New in 2023: Veterans who were previously denied the Post 9/11 Bonus due to entering the military outside of Minnesota are now eligible. Operation Inherent Resolve Campaign Medal was also added as a qualifying medal for the $1,200. If any Veteran falls into this category, we can assist them in reapplying.
