TRANSCRIPT: We have free lifetime vehicle registration on our primary vehicle. And no, I’m not kidding! In some states, there are programs that offer free vehicle registration. It’s amazing – and I’m going to tell you all about it.

Car registration is expensive. It’s a serious hardship for low income families. Too many people have to choose to either drive illegally or lose their transportation altogether.
When my husband was finally awarded a 100% disability rating with the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2017, free lifetime vehicle registration was one of my very favorite perks. It’s an extra benefit offered by the state of Washington for veterans who achieve the highest disability rating from the VA.
In order to be eligible for this in Washington, you must be a veteran who is rated 100% for a condition that is expected to last at least a year, OR be blind in both eyes due to military service, OR have lost the use of both hands or one foot.
This isn’t just a Washington state program, either. Programs like this exist in many different states!
Of course, each state handles it differently. Some states offer different arrangements. In some cases, they waive the entire cost. In other cases, they may waive part of the cost. It depends on where you are.
Because the rules vary so widely, we will only be able to present a quick overview in this video. You can always find a full state-by-state guide to these benefits at LowIncomeRelief.com/need-financial-help-car-registration.
