The Post 9/11 GI Bill is for individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after September 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days.
GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
The VA has released a new GI Bill Comparison Tool for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. This new tool makes it easy to estimate Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits with just one click. Students can find their estimated tuition and fee amounts and their projected housing allowance based on eligibility.
Use the Post 9/11 GI Bill checklist to help guide you through the initial steps to utilize your benefits.
