For many eligible participants, the Post-9/11 GI Bill® is a better solution than other education benefit programs, such as the Montgomery GI Bill® - Active Duty, Montgomery GI Bill® - Selected Reserve and the Reserve Education Assistance Program (REAP). However, this decision depends on several factors, including the type of education or training you plan to take and the amount of benefits received under each program.
VA is making it easier to research colleges and employers approved for the GI Bill®. Answer just a few questions about yourself and the school/employer you are considering. You'll receive an estimate of your GI Bill® benefits and some information about the facility's value and affordability.
Calculate your benefits and research approved programs.
