Post 9-11 GI Bill Law and Legal Definition

Post 9-11 GI bill refers to the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008 which expands the educational benefits for military veterans. The Act aims to provide funding 100% of a public four-year undergraduate education to a veteran who has served three years on active duty since September 11, 2001. These benefits are tiered based on the number of days served on active duty, creating a benefit package that gives current and previously activated National Guard and Reserve members the same benefits as active duty service members. A veteran can transfer the benefits to a spouse or children after serving ten years.
