About the Post 9/11 GI Bill®
The Post 9/11 GI Bill® was signed into law in July of 2008. This new bill created a robust education benefits program for veterans and service members that rivals the WWII Era GI Bill® of Rights. The new Post 9/11 GI Bill® developed education benefits for veterans and service members who served on active duty for 90 or more days on or after September 10, 2001.
The education benefits that were created with this Post 9/11 GI Bill® are tiered based on the number of days served on active duty. This creates a benefit package that gives current and previously activated National Guard and Reserve members access to the same benefits as active duty service members.
Post 9/11 GI Bill® Frequently Asked Questions
Am I Eligible for Post 9/11 GI Bill® Benefits?
You may be eligible for Post 9/11 GI Bill® benefits if you served at least 90 aggregate days on active duty after September 10, 2001 and you are still on active duty or were honorably:
- Discharged from active duty
- Released from active duty to be placed on the retired list or the temporary disability retired list
- Released from active duty and transferred to the Fleet Reserve or Fleet Marine Corps Reserve
- Released from active duty for further service in a reserve component of the Armed Forces
You may also be eligible for benefits under the Post 9/11 GI Bill® if you were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability and you served at least 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001.
How much will I Receive for my Post 9/11 GI Bill® Benefits?
The Post 9/11 GI Bill® uses a tiered system for determining the benefits that are to be received.
