Episode 28: The Post-9/11 GI Bill Explained

The Post-9/11 GI Bill is an education benefit for the latest generation of service members and Veterans (i.e., those who served after September 11, 2001). The GI Bill traces its history back to World War II when the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act was enacted to provide education, training, and other benefits for Veterans of the time. On this episode of the Veterans Legal Lowdown, CCK discusses GI Bill eligibility requirements, what educational benefits are offered, additional programs for needs such as housing and books, rules surrounding the transfer of GI Bill benefits to a dependent, special scholarships, the length of time Veterans have to use these benefits, how to apply, and much more.
