Compare your Eligible benefits:

A complete listing of federal benefits for veterans and dependents is available at Veterans Benefits – Department of Veterans Affairs. OTC recommends each student educate themselves on their available benefits. Each student has a very different goal to obtain. Selecting the right benefit for your educational plan can be difficult.

Choosing Benefits:

If you wish to receive benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill and you are eligible for it and another GI Bill benefit such as the Montgomery GI Bill, the government requires you to make an irrevocable choice of which benefit you wish to receive.

If you are eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill and two or more other education benefits, you must make an irrevocable choice to give up ONE or the other education benefits; however, you will remain eligible for the benefit you did not relinquish. Because you are now eligible for two education benefits, you MAY be able to change which education benefit you draw depending on your eligibility.

The Department of Veterans Affairs generally specifies benefit programs as a Chapter. It is important that you understand which Chapter(s) apply to you. The Department of Veterans Affairs determines eligibility, not OTC.

Military members using TA should consult with the closest military education center due to budget restraints within the government.
