Today’s GI Bill – also known as the Post-9/11 GI Bill – went into effect in August 2009, making the reality of higher education more attainable than ever for today’s service members and veterans. The Bill significantly expands educational benefits available to those who have served since September 11, 2001, offering up to 100 percent tuition and fee assistance at institutes of higher learning; housing assistance; an annual stipend for books and school supplies; and the option to transfer benefits to immediate family members.
Today’s service members and veterans represent the leaders of tomorrow. The Post-9/11 GI Bill enables these men and women to pursue the higher education that, coupled with their unique experiences and skills, will position them to guide the United States through times of war and peace.
TodaysGIBill.org is designed to assist service members and veterans by providing clear yet comprehensive guidance on the steps to making the most out of their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits.
