  • After the slide is doneNEXT
  • Veterans took to the Streets in record numbers. Vets lines soup kitchens and camps were erected in front of the White House called HoovervillesNEXT
  • Doughboys from WWI remembered the disgrace of the previous warCongress passes the Servicemembers’ READJUSTMENT Act in 1944The country invested in a generation of veterans by paying their way to the college of their choosingThe GI Bill paid full tuition, living costs, and books at any school 8 Million Vets went to college building the foundation for the Greatest Generation. These benefits lasted through the Korean War.NEXT
  • Repeating the sins of WWI, the Vietnam era GI Bill was drastically reduced and limited.Many veterans called it the Stereo Bill because it was just enough money to by a nice stereoNEXT
  • The Montgomery GI Bill was created in 1984 as a peacetime enlistment benefit It simply paid a monthly allowance that wouldn’t cover community college in most states.The average veteran went to school for 2 years, enough for a Associates Degree, then quit.NEXT
  • In 2008 Congress renewed the social contract with men and women in uniform by creating the Post 9/11 GI BillAs in WWII veterans of the previous era stepped up to ensure that OIF and OEF vets did not get substandard benefits and that the foundation would be laid for the Next Greatest Generation.Eligibility is based solely on Post 9/11 Active duty service.NEXT
  • CLICKTuition and Fees paid directly to the School. Covers the most expensive in-state public undergraduate education.CLICKMonthly living stipend paid to the veteran based on the E-5 w/ dependants BAH rate for the zip code of your schoolCLICKAnnual book stipend paid to the veterans for up to $1000 per year.NEXT
  • CLICKTRANSFERABILITY: Currently serving vets can transfer to a spouse or childCLICKYELLOW RIBBON: Program that helps pay for more expensive schoolsCLICKDEADLINE: Available for 15 years after dischargeIntroduce Example Veterans after the slideNEXT
  • Based solely on Post 9/11 active duty service of at least 90 days cumulativeUnlike old MGIB no $1,200 buy-in will be needed and Vietnam vets still serving qualifyBenefit is cumulative, the more active duty you serve, the higher the benefit (chart)Discharge from active duty must be either Honorable or due to service connected disabilityOfficers, NOAA and PHS do qualify for the new GI billCLICKNEXT
  • The following duty does not qualify for the Post 9/11 benefits:Initial enlistment obligation for Service Academy & ROTC graduatesInitial enlistment for Student Loan Repayment Program recipientsNon-federal activations of the National Guard (e.g. Title 32 AGR)What level do the example veterans qualify for?NEXT
  • CLICKThe Post 9/11 GI Bill can only be used at a degree granting school. This means an A.A. degree or higher.CLICKFor ExampleCLICKVocational schools like the AAA school of trucking CLICKare not eligible for the GI BillCLICKHowever a community College with a trucking programCLICKIs eligible because it is a degree granting institutionCan the example veterans use the New GI Bill at the School of their choice?NEXT
  • Tuition and Fees will be paid directly to the College from the VA. The veteran is taken out of the equation. Will cover up to the most expensive public undergraduate program in each stateIncludes any mandatory charges by the college (e.g., student fees & health insurance premiums)NEXT
  • In an attempt to help veterans, the VA ended up making this the most complicated part.CLICKEssentially now there are 2 caps: a tuition cap and a separate fee capCLICKTuition can only be spent on tuition and fees can only be spent on feesNEXT
  • For example: CLICKIn California where the cap on Fees is $6,5000. However, since public colleges in California do not chagre tuitionCLICKA veteran will receive $0 when attending a private university and will have to pay the remainder out of pocketSchools define what is considered tuition and fees. Nothing prevents a school from simply changing what they call their charges?Veterans entitled to less than the 100% rate, will get a percentage of the tuition cost and not a percentage of the cap. If the cap is $1,000 and tuition is only $100, a veteran getting 80% will only get $80Based on the example vets, how much would these vets receive for tuition/fees?NEXT
  • New VA program that will cover the tuition/fee gap if a school costs more than the capCLICKUsed for more expensive schools like grad schools CLICKand private universities (yellow ribbon)If a school agrees to offer a veterans only scholarship, the VA will match dollar for dollarNEXT
  • For Example: School costs $18,000 CLICKand state cap Is $8,000 CLICKthe “gap” is $10,000. CLICKIf the school gives a scholarship to the veteran, for let say $5000CLICKThe VA will match every dollar a school contributes up to the cost of the program ($5,000)CLICKThis means schools like Harvard and Yale could be fully covered if they participateProgram only available to veterans entitled to 100%NEXT
  • Agreement with VA must be signed by June 15thCan determine # of students, level of contributionMust be given on 1st come 1st serve basisCan be directed on particular school or only between grad/undergradCan be in form of a tuition waiver or yellow ribbon scholarshipNEXT
  • Will pay monthly living allowance equal to BAH of E-5 w/dependentsCLICKThis will be paid to the veteran directlyBased on the zip code of the school (not the veteran)If a veteran was going to receive an enlistment kicker, it will be added to the living allowanceCLICKFollowing do NOT receive a living allowance:Exclusively online schools (just one class in residence will qualify for GI Bill)Servicemembers using GI Bill while on active dutyHalf time or less students (exactly half time) If full time is 12 units, half time or less is 6 units. 7 units  living allowanceNEXT
  • CLICKThe VA will also pay a book stipend every term directly to the veteranNEXT
  • The most unique feature of the new GI Bill is the ability to transfer the servicemembers’ New GI Bill benefitsCLICKto a spouse or a dependantDesigned as a retention tool by the DOD the servicemember must still be serving as of August 1st, 2009NEXT
  • The servicemember can transfer their GI Bill to more than one person, however each of those must split the total benefitCLICKIf the servicemember has 2 kids, they split the total entitlementCLICKCLICKIf the Servicemember has 36 kids, they split the total entitlementCLICKTo qualify a servicemember must: Qualify for the education benefits themselves Served at least 6 years on Active Duty or in the National Guard or Select Reserves Agree to commit to 4 more years of service starting Aug 2009. NEXT
  • EXCEPTION: CLICKIf a veteran is retirement eligible, than no additional service will be required. If a veteran is less than 4 years to becoming retirement eligible than that veteran just needs to finish the years remaining to retirement eligibility (e.g, 18 years in the service, 2 more years are required).NEXT
  • How to Apply: DoD determines eligibility and will put up an application on August 1stWill resemble SGLI paperwork6 years of serviceCLICKSpouse: Can use benefits immediatelyNo living allowance or book stipend, if spouse is on active dutyHave 15 years after servicemembers separates to use benefitsCLICKChildren: Can only use benefits once servicemember has completed 10 yearsStill gets living allowance if servicemember is on active dutyHas till 26 years old to use benefitsMust be transferred to child before the child turns 23NEXT
  • Remaining BenefitsVeterans generally receive 36 months of benefits (4 academic years)MGIB users who transfer to Post 9/11 GI bill will get the same amount of benefits (1 for 1)Recent decisions by the VA granted veterans who used their entire MGIB an additional 12 months of Post 9/11 GI bill. So vets with a little remaining MGIB should burn it all before choosing the Post 9/11 GI BillUsers of other types of GI Bill already get an additional 12 months of Post 9/11 GI BillNEXT
