Post-9/11 GI Bill
Attention: Post 9/11 G.I. Bill (Chapter 33) Recipients
If you served in the Army National Guard or Air National Guard and are currently receiving less than 100% benefits under Chapter 33 (Post 9/11 G.I. Bill), you need to read this.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill authorizes the most extensive educational assistance opportunity since the passage of the original GI Bill in 1944. The maximum benefit allows every eligible veteran, service member, Reservist, and National Guard member an opportunity to receive an in-state, undergraduate education at a public institution at no cost. For more information about the Post-9/11 GI Bill please visit http://www.gibill.va.gov/.
