Federal Aid: Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act (Chapter 33)

Post 9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act (Chapter 33): The Post 9/11 GI Bill will take effect on August 1, 2009. The new chapter will provide up to 36 months of educational benefits for individuals who served on active duty on or after September 11, 2001. Eligibility for benefits is extended to 15 years from the last period of active duty. Benefit entitlement will be determined by length of active duty service after September 10, 2001. In addition to tuition and fees (not to exceed the most expensive in-state undergraduate tuition at a public institution), there are provisions for a monthly housing allowance equal  to E-5 basic allowance for housing with dependents (in same zip code as college), and a yearly stipend of $1,000 for books and equipment.
