Forever GI Bill
-- The "Forever GI Bill" is not a "new" GI Bill benefit. This law improves existing education benefits for service members, veterans, and families and addresses many deficiencies discovered since the passage of the Post-9/11 GI Bill in 2008.
-- Some changes made by this law will require VA to establish amplifying guidance such as business rules and application procedures.
