Are There Any Other Benefits Available for Veterans After Their Montgomery GI Bill Expires?

Q: I served from 1988-1994 so my GI Bill time limit has expired. Are there any other benefits available for Veterans after the 10-year mark?

A: There may be other benefits available depending on if you are currently employed or not. If not, you may still be able to get in under the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program – VRAP for short.

Basically, it is a 12-month program where you are paid the same rate each month as if you were using the Montgomery GI Bill – $1,564 per month. The purpose of the program is to train veterans in one of the High Demand Career Fields as identified by the Department of Labor (DOL). Once trained, the DOL will even help you find a job.

The general eligibility requirements for VRAP are:
• between the age of 35 and 60
• unemployed (at the time of application)
• have a discharge greater than dishonorable
• not eligible for the GI Bill
• not getting VA compensation due to unemployability
• not currently enrolled in a job training program at the state or federal level.

If you meet all of the above requirements, you can submit VA Form 22-1990 from the eBenefits website as your application.

Also, Congress is working on a bill that if passed would reinstate expired GI Bill benefits. If passed, you could get some education assistance from your previously expired GI Bill. Now the general feeling is GI Bill benefits should not have an expiration date of which I agree.
