Service members and their families often find that military life offers well-sought-after financial stability. There are downsides, of course. Military families may move more than the average civilian family, and service members may deploy at any minute for an undetermined amount of time. Fortunately, some benefits make the longing more bearable.

Here are 6 Military Family Benefits that most families might not know about. Please share this with another who might need it.

Military Family Benefits

Free Non-Medical Counseling

Through Military OneSource, non-medical counseling is free and available for service members and family members. You have the option to call, text, or schedule a session to talk with counselors. You can talk about various things, including relationships, money, personal goals, moving, family issues, or anything else affecting your life. 

Call 800-273-8255, text 838255, or visit Military OneSource.

The USO

For years, the United Service Organization (USO) has supported military service members and families. They support military marriages, spouses, and service members via various online programs and groups.

Thrift Shops

Many communities have a thrift shop where people can shop for items and sell them through consignment. There are often several volunteering opportunities and paid positions. In addition, they offer discounts for military families on all items.

Libraries and Overdrive

At a library, your family will get many great benefits, including summer reading programs for children, story hours, and a quiet place to read or study. In addition, your library card can be used to access MWR libraries online through Overdrive.

Education Center

These centers provide service members and their families with education and, on top of that, access to a computer lab. 

National Park Entry

Service members, military families, and veterans can enter national parks for free. All they need is the interagency annual military pass. However, this access pass does not cover camping, special tours, or other fees. To learn more about the interagency annual military pass, visit the National Park Service.

Increase Your VA Disability Rating

If you or anyone you know served in the military, you may need help obtaining a fair disability rating and compensation—contact Veteran Ratings. Veteran Ratings has a 95% chance of success in acquiring the rating and benefits you deserve.
