Forever GI Bill Expands OptionsJanuary 12, 2018 | :
by David Louis
When President Donald Trump signed into law the “Forever GI Bill” last year it opened up several opportunities for a segment of post 9/11 veterans to receive education benefits for life.
Previously, veterans had to use their post-9/11 GI benefits within 15 years of their last 90 days of active-duty service. The passage of the Forever Bill removes this barrier.
Now, veterans who retired from military service after Jan. 1, 2013 can use the education benefits they’ve earned through the GI Bill forever.
