The New G.I. Bill

The first G.I. Bill was approved in 1944 and contained benefits for returning veterans including education, unemployment and loans for homes and small businesses.

The United States Department of Veterans Affairs has announced that the new G.I. Bill (sometimes referred to as the “Post 9/11” G.I. Bill) is now up and running. You can go directly to the V.A. site here.

As an adjunct, the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) has put together The New G.I., a website designed to help folks figure out the smoothest path to access the new benefits.
