Under Chapter 115 of Massachusetts General Laws (M.G.L. ch. 115), 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 which 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 were the
veteran still living.
Gloucester veterans should contact the Gloucester Office of Veterans' Services at 978-281-9740 to make an appointment to discuss eligibility.
