GI Bill Information

Since its rollout in 2009, the Veterans Administration (VA) Post-9/11 GI Bill has provided many veterans with education benefits such as:

    Full tuition equal to the most costly in-state school with the opportunity for a private school to offer matching funds

    A monthly housing stipend

    A stipend of $1,000 per year for books and supplies

 

The bill has also given Reserve and Guard members who have been activated for more than 90 days since 9/11 access to the same GI Bill benefits with the amount of benefits received directly correlating to the amount of time served.

Additionally, eligible service members and veterans have been able to transfer their unused benefits to their family members.

Recognizing that these valuable provisions may be of interest to many transitioning veterans, CivilianJobs.com has created a link to the VA’s GI BILL website below. The VA is continuously updating the site to include the latest information on this program and on other education and training benefits for which you may be eligible.

If higher education is the path you plan to take, know that CivilianJobs.com, through its parent company, Bradley-Morris, Inc., has built strong relationships with colleges and universities across the country.

Whether you are transitioning straight from active duty into the workplace or you have chosen higher education as your next route, CivilianJobs.com stands ready to serve you in finding employment whenever you’re ready.
