GI Bill®

GI Bill®

The Servicemen’s Readjustment Act of 1944, commonly known as the GI Bill®, was enacted to provide a variety of benefits to wartime servicemembers after World War II. The term GI Bill has been coined since then to refer to the educational benefits available to service members who qualified for the benefits during their service. Available to service members who qualify is the Post 9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33). Additionally, for dependents of qualifying veterans, there is educational assistance available through the Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance program (Chapter 35). The GI Bill provides monetary assistance to service members, veterans, and their dependents to help pay for college, graduate school, and a variety of training and certification programs.
