Education Benefits

VA pays benefits to eligible veterans, reservists, and active duty servicemembers while they are in an approved education or training program. Benefit programs vary depending upon length of military service and type of service (Active Duty Service vs. Reserve/Guard service). Generally, veterans have 15 years from the date they were last released from active duty to use their education and training benefits. Reserve and National Guard members may also be eligible for education benefits.
