Hundreds of veterans' bonuses are going uncollected in the State of Massachusetts.
Thanks to the state's Welcome Home Program, Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans receive $1,000 while other veterans who served more than six months Sept. 11, 2007 receive a $500 bonus.
However, only about 13,000 of the state's 27,000 eligible residents have applied for the bonuses.
Massachusetts veterans can call the State Treasurer's office at 617-367-9333, ext. 859, to request bonus application materials.
