Did you know that Ohio is home to over 730,000 veterans? Our military community is strong—and that includes our military families. We know that military families are a crucial part of the success of active-duty military members and that support doesn’t end post-military career. But as the veteran in your family transitions to a civilian life, you might be looking for a life or career change for yourself as well. We believe that you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for here in Ohio.
Ohio is dedicated to helping veterans and their families live rewarding lives. Through our over 6,000 registered military-friendly employers and dedicated Department of Veterans’ Services, we provide support to military families at every step along the way. Read on to discover just a few of the ways we show our commitment to veterans and spouses.
As a designated Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zone (MSEEZ), we provide employment and advocacy to the military spouse community. We address the ongoing issue of military spouse unemployment and underemployment through a range of local employment-related tools and resources. Whether you’re shifting careers, looking for a new job in your field or coming into the workforce after a hiatus, the MSEEZ and partners like Find Your Ohio are committed to helping you secure your dream job.
Our pro-military legislation ensures additional support for military spouses and families. Under Ohio law, unemployment compensation is available to military spouses. We also provide Medicaid waivers for military families with special needs dependents. And to help you and your military spouse reach your higher education goals, active-duty military and their families can start or continue their education at in-state tuition rates.
We aren’t just a great state to work in, though. Ohio offers something for every lifestyle at a low cost of living. From large cities with plenty of entertainment to beautiful countryside and classic small towns, we know you’ll find a community you’ll love.
