Reading's Veteran's Services (RVS) was created to assist eligible needy wartime veterans and/or their dependents as described in Massachusetts General Law 115 Section 5. RVS is a member of the Massachusetts Department of Veterans Services.
Two types of services are provided by the Reading Veteran's Agent. Local financial aid (paid 25% by Reading and 75% by the state) is available to cover living expenses and medical bills to those that are full-time residents (or their dependents) of Reading who have been honorably discharged from U.S. military service and who meet income/asset guidelines. Assistance is also provided in obtaining federal VA pension or other compensation.
