Restore your VA education benefits with the Forever GI Bill

February 22, 2018
The Colmery Act (also known as the Forever GI Bill) includes significant education benefit changes that may affect you.

Did you lose your VA education benefits due to a school closure or disapproval? You may be able to restore your benefits. Learn more and apply here.

In addition to assistance with school closings, new legislation:

  • Eliminates the 15-year time limit for those who left active duty on or after January 1, 2013.
  • Provides up to nine months of additional Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits to eligible individuals who are enrolled in a program of education in a STEM field.
  • Allows Veterans who had eligibility under the Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP) and lost it due to the sunset of the program to have that service credited toward the Post-9/11 GI Bill Program.
