Chapter 115 Benefits

Chapter 115 Benefits Under Chapter 115 of Massachusetts General Laws (MGL) states the Commonwealth provides a uniform program of financial and medical assistance for indigent veterans and their dependents. Qualifying veterans and their dependents receive necessary financial assistance for food, shelter, clothing, housing supplies, and medical care in accordance with a formula that takes into account the number of dependents and income from all sources. Eligible dependents of deceased veterans are provided with the same benefits as they would if the veteran were still living.
