New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a new free mobile app to help the state’s 900,000 veterans and their family members connect with services and programs.
The governor’s office says the app provides users with information about federal and state Veterans’ benefits, programs, and services including:
- Essential materials regarding healthcare
- Filing claims for financial Veterans’ benefits with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
“The brave men and women of the Armed Forces have dedicated their lives to defending our nation and this new app helps ensure these heroes and their families have access to the resources and services they need after returning home,” Governor Cuomo said. “This is one more way we are using technology to make a smarter and stronger New York.”
