New Hampshire Employment Security Partners with Hilton Hotels to Support Veterans
Free hotel stays to Veterans and Transitioning Service Members for employment-related travel

CONCORD – Members of the military are accustomed to sleeping on the ground, in fox holes, bunkers, barracks and other close quarters. While these sleeping arrangements are not the most luxurious, comfortable or safe, military men and women realize it’s just part of the job. Thanks to a partnership with Hilton Hotels, the New Hampshire Department of Employment Security offers free hotel stays for employment-related travel to Veterans and transitioning service members.

New Hampshire Employment Security Commissioner George Copadis stated, “New Hampshire Employment Security is pleased to partner with Hilton Hotels offering free hotel stays for veterans when they have employment related travel. We have tremendous employment opportunities right here in our state for veterans and transitioning service members. The staff at New Hampshire Employment Security are forever grateful to our veterans who have served our country with distinction and honor. Our offices throughout the state provide priority of service to our veterans and for us every day is Veterans Day. Again I want to thank Hilton Hotels for offering this service to the veteran community and we look forward to working with them to insure this partnership is a huge success.”

While hundreds of Veterans across the country have successfully utilized the program, there are currently no limits on the number of eligible people who can enroll. Veterans are eligible for the points once per calendar year. Hotel stays are for employment-related travel, such as job interviews, career and hiring events, and training needed to get or keep a job.

Interested individuals must meet certain eligibility requirements of the Hilton Honors Military Rewards Program, including:

  • Veteran
  • Transitioning Service Member
  • National Guard/Reservist
  • Spouse of a Veteran
  • Actively involved in one or more job search related activities (registered in JMS - https://nhworksjobmatch.nhes.nh.gov/vosnet/Default.aspx)
    - Job Interview
    - Confirmed Job search or Job Fair
    - Job Training / Skills upgrade
    - House hunting due to recent employment offer
  • Resident of New Hampshire
  • Current Registration with Hilton Honors
  • Enrolling online for a Hilton Honors account

Those who meet the eligibility requirements and are interested in the Program should contact Kevin Myers to start the fast turnaround process. Upon approval, applicants will receive 100,000 Honors Points per year, which can be redeemed for hotel stays. The points never expire. The recipient will receive an email confirmation from Hilton within two business days in order to book their reservation.
