Federal Benefits for Members of the Armed Forces

Many benefits are available to advance the education and skills of veterans and service members. Spouses and family members may also be eligible for education and training assistance.  In fact, 25 percent of those benefiting from the Veterans Administration's education programs are non-veterans. Some might find they're eligible for more than one benefit or that one program is more suited to certain education and training goals than another.

 

The Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 (the “GI Bill®”) expands the educational benefits available to many veterans who served on or after September 11, 2001.  Learn more > 

 
In addition to other forms of financial aid, there are several opportunities for U.S. military personnel to receive both federal and state financial aid.   Learn more from the VA >
