Veterans Administration Education Benefits Breakdown

The Montgomery GI Bill® has six different chapters and as a Veteran, you or your family members may be eligible for many of them. Part of our job here at the Veteran Services office here at JCC is to explain the differences and help you to decide which chapter would work best in your situation. In order to help us do this here is a chart of the different chapters available, along with their eligibility requirements and the benefits that they provide.
