WASHINGTON (May 1, 2009) - The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)announced today that Veterans can begin submitting applications on-line for the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

"There is no better investment than education," said Tammy Duckworth,VA's assistant secretary for public and intergovernmental affairs.

"The Post-9/11 GI Bill will provide new opportunities that are essential to our Veterans, our workforce and our economy."

Veterans, service members, reservists and National Guard members with active duty since Sept. 10, 2001, may be eligible for this benefit.

Veterans will remain eligible for benefits for 15 years from the date of last discharge or release from a period of active duty of at least 90 continuous days

Eligible applicants must have served for an aggregate period of at least 90 days since Sept. 10, 2001, or served at least 30 continuous days on active duty since Sept. 10, 2001, and received a discharge for disability.

Benefit payment rates range from 40 percent of the maximum benefit for an person with at least 90 days, but less than 6 months of aggregate service and up to 100 percent of the benefit for people with at least 36 months of aggregate service or 30 continuous days and a discharge due to a service connected disability.

Qualified Veterans will receive a "Certification of Eligibility" as well as additional information regarding benefits they may qualify for under the Post-9/11 GI Bill, which will become effective on Aug. 1, 2009.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill, passed by Congress last year, is the most extensive educational assistance program authorized since the original GI Bill was signed into law in 1944.

It provides eligible applicants with tuition payments to assist them in getting a college education. For many participants, it also provides a housing allowance and a stipend for books and supplies.

Hello, great post, thanks for sharing! In case you are a nursing college student who's currently concentrating on your academic cardstock, I have another benefit that could help you with your writing. I challenged the same problem just lately and it was very hard for me to craft something on my own. I actually needed something to build ideas from and I suddenly found this cool website with diverse biological materials from real specialists! I chose the essay type I needed and soon I was able to craft a perfect essay on my own to astonish everyone!
