Move on with your life in a very positive way – through education. And let VA help you pay for it.
The Post 9/11 GI-Bill can help pay for education and housing to those who:
have been discharged honorably
have at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after September 11, 2001
discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days.
What will the bill cover?
Tuition and fees paid directly to the school is based on the maximum in-state tuition rate at a public institution of higher learning. That is the maximum coverage, unless Yellow Ribbon comes into play.
Monthly housing allowance
Living expense stipend based on E-5 BAH with dependents based on the zip code of your school
Annual books and supplies stipend up to $1,000 paid proportionately based on enrollment.
Can transfer to eligible dependents
If you have served on or called to active duty after Sept. 11, 2001:
100% benefit if you have at least 36 months of duty
100% benefit if you have 30 days service and were discharged with a service-connected disability
