The Post-9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33) went into effect August 1, 2009. The percentage of the following benefits you will receive is determined by the number of days you served on Active Duty (not including training) after September 10, 2001:
Please note: The housing allowance is not payable if you are enrolled only half-time or less. The law has been updated to allow a reduced payment if you are enrolled in exclusively distance learning courses.
In order to receive Ch 33 benefits, you must submit an application (Form 22-1990) to the Veterans Administration specifically electing this benefit. If you are eligible for any other benefit, you will have to give up that benefit in order to receive Ch 33. This election CANNOT be reversed. Please research and discuss your options so you can make the correct decision for your circumstances.
In certain instances you may qualify to transfer all, or a portion, of your benefits under Ch 33 to your spouse or children. For the most up-to-date information on the Post-9/11 GI Bill, please refer the Veterans Administration’s website at http://www.gibill.va.gov.
