Application Process and Forms
The Education Service in the Department of Veterans Affairs offers educational benefits for veterans through the G.I. Bill and various education programs. Details about payment rates and the specific advantages of each program can be found on the Education Benefits page at the G. I. Bill website. (http://www.gibill.va.gov/GI_Bill_Info/benefits.htm). You can also contact your assigned duty unit clerk if you need more information.
After you have verified the program you are eligible to participate in, you must complete the appropriate forms. Visit the G.I. Bill Education Benefits Web site (http://www.gibill.va.gov/GI_Bill_Info/benefits.htm) and select Education Forms.
