U.S. Rep. Austin Scott, R-GA, is leading an effort to ensure that combat-disabled veterans are not penalized for re-entering the workforce. Scott’s Purple Heart Freedom to Work Act would help eliminate barriers for these service members by raising the current monthly disability benefit for these veterans from $1,470 per month to $2,460 per month, the statutorily allowed maximum level.
