You've earned the right to a higher education through your service in the U.S. Armed Forces. But how do you use your GI Bill benefits? Which version is right for you? The Legion can help answer questions about state and/or federal education benefits, who can use them, and how long.
If you are a veteran, National Guard member, selected reservist or dependent of a veteran, you may be eligible to receive a monthly education benefits check from VA. On-the-Job/Apprenticeship training (OJT) is training you receive while actually performing a job and earning wages. If you decide not to attend college, you may still receive your VA benefits through your employer. OJT is wonderful for employers, as well, who may receive VA compensation for training a superior employee.
