G.I. Bill eases college costs for military families

-A A +A

As Veteran’s Day approaches, this is a good time to remind our active duty service members and veterans about the many education assistance benefits available to them through the G.I. Bill and other government programs.
Here’s a rundown of a few of the more commonly used programs:
The Post 9/11 G.I. Bill is more flexible and generally offers more generous benefits than earlier G.I. Bills. It provides up to 36 months of support for education and housing to individuals with at least 90 days of active duty after Sept. 11, 2001, or those with a service-connected disability after 30 days. An honorable discharge is required.
Approved training includes undergraduate and graduate degrees and vocational/technical/on-the-job training, among others. You will be eligible for benefits for 15 years from your last period of active duty of at least 90 consecutive days.
This program covers 100 percent of tuition and fees for in-state students at public institutions, paid directly to the school. For those attending private or foreign schools, it will pay up to $19,198.31 per academic year (sometimes more in certain states).
