About VA Education Benefits
There are currently two veteran education benefits programs: the Post 9/11 GI Bill and the Montgomery GI Bill. Both programs are designed to assist veterans in achieving postsecondary training through financial assistance.
The Post 9/11 Bill provides tuition coverage up to $17,550 per academic year. In addition, the student receives funding for books, supplies, and housing. The plan separates its payouts to students according to the type of educational expense.
Under the Montgomery GI Bill, qualifying veterans receive benefits dependent on a variety of factors (length of service, education level, etc.) and vary for Active Duty or Selected Reserve.
For further information about the Post 9/11 GI Bill or the Montgomery GI Bill, veterans should speak with a military benefits officer or a financial aid professional.
