Federal Veterans Education Benefits

  • What is it: Federal Education benefits are a primary benefit for service members and their dependents who contractually signed up for education benefits, earned them based on disability, or through their service period.  There are a few different programs depending on your service, and disability status.  They are:

    • Post 9/11 GI Bill

    • Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E)

    • Dependent Educational Assistance Benefits (DEA)

    • Additional programs are available depending on service and area of study.


  • What We Do: Assist Veterans, and their eligible dependents, in the application for VA Education benefits as well as determining basic eligibility and strategizing the use of both Federal and State education benefits.


  • How do I do this?  Contact the Washington County Veterans Service Office, or the office of your County residency, and schedule an appointment.  When scheduling, listen closely to what is needed and explain the reason for the appointment.  This ensures proper forms can be prepared before you arrive.  Please call 262-335-4457 to schedule.
