Active duty personnel and Vietnamflera veterans are eligible for the new G.I. Bill if they served without a break in service from October 19, 1984, through June 30, 1985. Only veterans separating after June 30, 1988, are eligible. Eligibility terminates 10 years from date of separation from active duty.
The All-Volunteer Force Educational Assistance Program (New G.I. Bill) can be used by a veteran who entered on active duty at any time after June 30, 1985, and paid into the program.
Educational assistance for members of the Selected Reserve (Chapter 1606) is also a part of the G.I. Bill. They are entitled to education benefits with a six-year contract by actively participating in the selected reserve program.
Applications are available from the Veterans Affairs office at Wright State University or from any Department of Veteran Affairs office. Educational opportunities are available for children and surviving spouses of veterans whose deaths or permanent total disabilities were service-connected. Spouses and children of servicemen and women declared missing in action or prisoners of war are also eligible. Tutorial assistance is available to students who are receiving education benefits. Assistance is given to vocational rehabilitation students according to need, while benefits are limited to a maximum of $100 per month for other students.
