Schuntz, Director or the North Dakota Unemployment Com- pensation Division which acts as agent for the Veterans Adminis- tration in the operation of Title V of the G. I. Bill. disclosed that many Vetcluns are not aware of «their rights and requirements under the Bill. The pmpose of the Re- adj talent Allowance Prog‘mm is to ry the unemployed veteran over the period following his dis- charge and while he is looking for suitable work and to assist the self-employed veteran in establish- ing himself in business during, those months in which his net earnings are less than 0100. These allowances should not be construed as .‘bonusch’ In many essay the veteran is misinformed of his rights and it is therefore urged that all re- turning vetemns, either unemploy- ed or self-employed, appear at the nearest local public employment service office for detailed inform- atlon. ‘In some instances it was found that the veteran was in- formed that he would receive $20 per week without regard to any eligibility requirements. Sohantz stated the law specifically provid- es that the unemployed veteran i must be a resident of the United States, must be completely unem- ployed or partially unemployed and N. Dak. indicated that the Division is ex— trcmely am of mowian all P. . veterans of their rights and obli- gations under the Act in order to avoid a situation whereby the veteran would be subject to the severe penalties under this sec- tion. Furthermore the G. 1. Bill provides that any vetemn who imowtingly accepts an allowance to which he is not entitled sln'll be ineligible to receive any further allowances under this one. m farmoasescfimudhavcbeen disclosed alimoth several appli- cations have been denied because the veteran did not meet eligibility requirements. i In a summc ry of the Readjmt- ment Almanac Program in m W. J. RAY Alhambra-Luv- PRACTICE IN ALL COURTS Medora. 'N. Dali: earning less than the allowance ‘ provided under the Bill, must be registered for work and continue ‘ to report to a. public eniploymemt arm as directed and must be able ‘ ' to work and available for work at lthe time of his registration. Pen- ; altim are also .pmovlded' for volun- ' tarily leaving employment without good cause and for flail-ure to ap- ply for or accept suitable work. The self-employed veteran must be fully engaged in such self—employ- ment for prom throughout the entire month for which he claims allowances and his net earnings during the month must be less than 0100 in order to qualify. The veteran must mlnltaln suitable records for each month in order to establish his net income for the, month. Mare to maintain such records may be cause for denial of the claim. There are penalties for fraud where a votcmn falls to repent his caerch or fails to disclose a material fact in order to obtain or increase his allowances. Schultz Chas.
