Coding for Veterans


GI Bill and Other Education Benefits

The GI Bill benefits help qualifying Veterans and their family members to pay for college, graduate school, and training programs. The new GI Bill benefits are free to any Veteran who’s served at least 30 days of continuous active duty service after September 10, 2001, and be discharged due to a service-connected disability; or served an aggregate of 90 days of active duty or federal service after that date and received an honorable discharge.

The GI Bill has several programs and each is administrated differently, depending on a person’s eligibility and duty status. The amount of time you spent on active duty determines the percentage of total benefits you can receive.

VA Education Benefits

Veterans Affairs (VA) education benefits can help you pay your tuition, pick out a school, choose a career, and more. If you’re an active-duty service member or Veteran, a member of the National Guard or Reserves, or a qualified survivor or dependent, you may be eligible for VA education benefits through the GI Bill and other educational assistance programs.

Post-9/11 GI Bill

The Post-9/11 GI Bill is available to take care of anything education-related. This program will cover your full tuition, school fees, housing, and your books and supplies. Another great part of this benefit is that it can be transferred to family members.
