Yes! You can receive funding through the GI Bill even if you receive disability payments from the VA. These two sources of financial aid are separate and do not preclude you from receiving money from the other. While VA disability compensates you for losses due to an injury or illness related to your military service, the GI Bill is intended to help veterans with their education goals. It can be used for tuition or other secondary education-related fees.
If you need help filing for VA benefits or funding through the GI Bill, having an attorney on your side can be a great asset. Reach out to our law firm for a veteran’s attorney who understands your unique needs and will fight for you.
What is the Purpose of the GI Bill?
The GI Bill was founded after World War II to help veterans reach the then-unlikely goal of going to college. This funding is still an excellent way for military men and women to pay for secondary education, be it college courses at a private university, books, housing, or other training.
Please don’t let this great source of income pass you by! We can help you apply for the help you deserve when you are ready to get the education you need. Some servicemen may even qualify to receive money for their spouse or children through the Yellow Ribbon Program. Contact us today for more information.
