Veteran Education Benefits

The Department of Veterans Administration operates a number of programs providing financial, medical and other assistance to veterans. For Americans who received an honorable or general discharge, education programs are available:

  •  Chapter 32 Veterans Educational Assistance Program (VEAP)
  • Chapter 33 Post-9/11 Veterans Education Assistance
  • Chapter 30 Montgomery GI Bill- Active Duty (MGIB-AD)
  • Chapter 1606 Montgomery GI Bill-Selected Reserve (MGIB-SR)
  • Chapter 1607 Reserve Education Assistance Program (REAP)
  • Chapter 35 Survivors’ and Dependents Educational Assistance Program (DEA)
  • Chapter 31 Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Program Service (VR&E)

 

The term GI Bill refers to any Department of Veterans Affairs education benefit earned by members of Active Duty, Selected Reserve and National Guard Armed Forces and their families. The benefit is designed to help servicemembers and eligible veterans cover the costs associated with getting an education or training. The GI Bill has several programs and each is administrated differently — depending on a person’s eligibility and duty status. To find out more about these programs and eligibility requirement, visit www.gibill.va.gov.

 

Also, be sure to contact a VA representative to discuss your eligibility and benefits.
