Should a student utilize post 9/11 GI BILL® Benefits? Students should consider a number of questions in determining which VA education benefit is the best choice at this time.
Some of those questions include:
- Which benefit pays more?
- What Post 9/11 GI Bill® tier (which impacts the benefit amount) is the student eligible for?
- Does the student have remaining entitlement under other VA Education Programs that would be best utilized prior to making use of Post 9/11 GI benefits?
In making the choice of benefit, students should look at remaining entitlement under other VA Education Programs that would be best utilized prior to making use of Post 9/11 GI benefits.
Students who are eligible for Post 9/11 GI Bill® benefits AND two or more other VA education benefits must make an irrevocable choice to give up ONE of the other education benefits but may retain TWO education benefits. Students may be able to change which of the two education benefits to draw from depending upon eligibility.
