As a Veteran in Oregon, you have access to benefits that can have a significant impact on your financial future. And the level of benefits in which you are entitled is directly related to your disability rating, with the higher the rating, the greater the benefit. Let’s examine those benefits that could result in the greatest gains:
- Property Tax Exemption: Disabled veterans with a 40% or higher service-related disability rating can receive a property tax exemption of $29,753. That amount increases by 3% each year. Source: Veteran’s Tax Exemptions | Clackamas County
- Veteran Home Loans: The OrVet Home Loan Program offers Oregon veterans home loans up to $726,200 for the purchase of owner-occupied, single-family residences. Eligible Oregon veterans can access this benefit up to four times during their lifetime and require a service-connected disability. Source: rate sheet flyer.pdf (oregon.gov)
- Education Programs: Children and spouses of Oregon military veterans who have a 100% disability rating or were killed in the line of duty may be eligible for the Oregon Veterans Dependent Tuition Program. This program provides a full tuition waiver, except for fees, for a bachelor’s or master’s degree at an Oregon public university or college. The waiver is for the total number of attempted credit hours equal to four years of full-time attendance for a bachelor’s degree, or the total number of attempted credit hours equal to two years of full-time attendance for a master’s degree.
