Upcoming Changes To The Post-9/11 GI-BillWASHINGTON, DC ? To bring the educational benefits of the Post-9/11 GI Bill closer to more Veterans and service members, President Barack Obama signed legislation Jan. 4 that streamlines the 18-month-old education program administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
?Since the first GI Bill in 1944, this unique educational program has adapted to the needs of America's veterans, active-duty personnel, reservists and guardsmen,? said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki. ?Like its forbearers, the Post-9/11 GI Bill is growing to ensure the men and women who serve this nation in uniform receive valuable education benefits from a grateful nation.
On behalf of veterans, Shinseki thanked the president, members of Congress and veterans service organization partners for helping make the bill a reality.
