Establishes a program of educational benefits for eligible persons entering military service after June 30, 1985, who have had their basic military pay reduced for their first 12 months of service and received a discharge specified as “honorable”. The maximum entitlement is 36 months of full-time benefits. Monthly benefit rates are determined by the VA. Benefits terminate 10 years after date of separation.

Chapter 30 Kickers – Higher monthly benefits are paid to Chapter 30 participants with “kickers” and to Chapter 30 participants who made additional Chapter 30 payments.

POST 9/11 GI BILL (Chapter 33)
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.  You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

This benefit provides up to 36 months of education benefits; generally benefits are payable for 15 years following your release from active duty. Here is the link for the VA Transfer of Entitlement program.

To be eligible for educational assistance a person must have a 6-year obligation to serve in the selected reserve after June 30, 1985.  Maximum entitlement is 36 months of full-time benefits which terminate 10 years from the date of eligibility or the day following separation from a reserve component.

Chapter 1606 Kickers – An additional amount, called a kicker, may be added to the benefit of some Chapter 1606 students.
NOTE: Active duty personnel are reimbursed for tuition and fees only, but are accessed entitlement charges at the rate of attend.

Chapter 1607 makes certain individuals who were activated on or after 9-11-01 either eligible for education benefits or eligible for increased benefits.  Maximum entitlement is 36 months of full-time benefits.

The VR&E program is is administered by a different department of VA than regular education benefits.  This program has two key goals:

First, to assist the service-disabled veteran to prepare for, obtain, and maintain suitable employment (including educational assistance).

Second, for those persons who are severely disabled and that gainful employment is not an option, assistance may be provided to allow that person to live more independently in his or her community.

More information about VR&E benefits may be found by visiting your local VA Regional Office, by going online to, or by calling 1-800-827-1000.

Sons, daughters and spouses of a veteran may be eligible for benefits if the veteran died while on active duty, died after discharge from active duty of a service-connected disability, is permanently and totally disabled as a result of a service-connected disability, or listed as missing in action for a total of more than 90 days.  Eligible persons are entitled to a maximum of 45 months of full-time benefits.  Generally, the eligibility period for sons and daughters is between the ages of 18 and 26.  A spouse may use educational benefits during a 10 year period after eligibility is found.
