Department of Veterans Affairs GI Bill Comparison Tool

The Department of Veterans Affairs recently launched a re-designed GI Bill Comparison tool on the new Vets.gov page that was unveiled on Veterans Day of this year. The VA is making it easier for Veterans, Servicemembers and dependents to research colleges and employers approved for the GI Bill and calculate their GI Bill benefits, specific to the program that they qualify for. According to the website, “Answer just a few questions about yourself and the school/employer you are considering. You’ll receive an estimate of your GI Bill benefits and some information about the facility’s value and affordability.” The tool also provides additional information such as graduation and retention rates, college affordability, and the number of students receiving VA education benefits at each school.
