Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance - #64.027

Direct Payments For Specified Use

The amount of educational assistance an individual is entitled to varies based on the amount of time served on active duty, the amount of tuition and fees charged, and the Basic Allowance for Housing payable for an E-5 with dependents in the zip code where the student attends school. In most cases, the benefits last for 36 (48 months when combined with other VA education benefits) calendar months of full-time training. The work-study allowance is limited to the higher of the Federal minimum wage or the State minimum wage where the work is performed. Tutorial assistance may not exceed $1200 and reimbursement for a licensing or certification test may not exceed $2000. The rural benefit is a one-time payment of $500.

Lump sum payments for tuition and fees and the Yellow Ribbon Program are issued directly to the IHL on behalf of the student. Students generally receive monthly payments of the housing allowance and a lump sum payment of the books and supplies stipend. Method of awarding/releasing assistance: lump sum.
