VA Simplifies G.I. Bill

When was the G.I. bill established?

The G.I. Bill was created in 1944 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to aid WWII Veterans. After the war, Veterans and all who helped supply the war would be unemployed. So Roosevelt established the G.I. Bill to provide funds for higher education, housing, and unemployment insurance.

By 1956 the G.I. Bill had expired and had helped 14.5 billion Veterans with education and housing.

The Bill was expended several times, including the post-9/11 G.I. Bill in 2008 and then the forever G.I. Bill.

How do the updates affect G.I. bill recipients?

With the recent update to the G.I. Bill, recipients can now receive an immediate education decision. Before this update, recipients had to wait up to a month to receive a decision.

Now that the process is digital, recipients can receive a decision in minutes.
