Where Does It Say I’ll Lose My GI Bill Benefits With a General Discharge?


Q: What about a General discharge under honorable conditions? Are they eligible for the Post 9/11 GI Bill and where can I look up the regulations in full so I can print them and read them myself?

A: A general discharge would prevent you from using your GI Bill education benefits – only an honorable would allow you to keep them. There are several places on the VA website that reference needing an honorable or other qualifying type of discharge to use GI Bill benefits. One document says “Veterans must have an honorable discharge or other qualifying discharge (e.g. hardship, condition interfering with duty, etc.) to be eligible.”

Here is a clip from another document that talks about needing an honorable discahrge:“ Who is eligible for benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill?

Eligible individuals include those who serve on active duty at least 90 aggregate days beginning on or after September 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days of continuous service. (Discharged individuals must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible, or have a discharge or release for a medical condition Existing Prior to Service (EPTS), Hardship (HDSP), or Condition Interfering with Duty (CIWD).”

These are just two of the many documents that reference the need for an Honorable discharge to retain GI Bill education benefits.
