It’s your last chance to register for the next course with the Virtual Institute, “Pensions: Did You Stop Too Soon?,” taught by Craig R. Scott, CG, FUGA. Registration will close this coming Friday night, and the course will begin Saturday morning, February 24, 2018, at 11am (EST).
Most researchers seem to believe that pension research is examining the pension application files. There is much more than that. There are other areas that will contribute to a search in military pensions. Some people have pensions, but you would not know it because they are not in the pension indexes. Pension law, a requirement for a pension, might explain why a person’s pension was denied. Pension ledgers and payment vouchers add to our understanding of the service and where the pensioner is located in later life. Final payments provide insight into the heirs of a pensioner.
The instructor for this course, Craig Scott, is a nationally recognized expert on U.S. military matters. He has taught on military records at national conferences and institutes, including several courses for the Virtual Institute.
