Education Benefits for Veterans

When you’re looking to expand your knowledge and employment opportunities, education is the answer. With a specialized skill set, you can make yourself more attractive to employers or give yourself the ability to start a small business in your field of expertise. Veterans can capitalize on their time serving their country by taking advantage of the U.S. government’s various education programs.

GI Bill

Worth nearly $66,000, the GI Bill is available to pay for post-service or current training and education for members of the military. To receive this education benefit, you must have 90 days of aggregate active duty after Sept. 10, 2001 or an honorable discharge, or you must still be in active duty. If you’re eligible for the GI Bill, you can receive partial or full reimbursement for programs such as the following:

With these benefits, you can find the ideal program to suit your educational needs or interests.

Tuition Assistance

If you aren’t eligible for the GI Bill, you may qualify for tuition assistance that’s paid to members of the military. It’s one of the benefits of being an active service member. Those in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines can earn up to $4,500 of educational assistance per fiscal year, while Coast Guard members are eligible for $4,000. The most advantageous part of this program is that its benefits are much like your base pay and not a loan like other government programs.
