The Department of Military Veterans says it is looking at other solutions to ensure that it can continue with its education support benefit to qualifying military veterans and their dependants.

Military Veterans dept seeks solutions to continue education benefits

The department’s Director-General, Derrick Mgwebi, said the department is soliciting support from the private sector and other State-owned entities to reduce the constraints of restricted financial resources.

This is after the department announced that it would not be accepting new applications for education support for the year 2019.

According to the department, the decision not to accept new applications follows intense discussions and deliberations between the Department of Military Veterans, the Ministry of Defence and Military Veterans, the South African National Military Veterans Association (SANMVA) and the advisory council, where it was decided that the DMV pull back on new applications until an economically viable solution is found. 

Speaking at the Military Veterans offices in Pretoria on Monday, Mgwebi, said the department has been providing education support to an insignificant number of military veterans and their dependants since 2013. However, the numbers increased exponentially as the years progressed.

Due to financial constraints, the department has decided not to accept new applications for education support for 2019.
