VA administers a variety of benefits and services that provide financial and other forms of assistance to service members, veterans, their dependents and survivors.
If you served on active duty, you might be eligible for education benefits offered by the
Department of Veterans Affairs. For example, the Post-9/11 GI Bill® provides Financial
support for educational and housing expenses to individuals with at least 90 days of
aggregate service after September 10, 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®.

If you are the spouse or child of a service member, you may be eligible for transfer of the
service member’s Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to you.
