    Post GI Bill Vets - Take Note

    If any of you have passed your benefit to your children, know their payment is going to be reduced. I don't understand why this happened and now many Vets will have to come up with additional funds to pay for their children's education.

    Still regret letting mine go to waste but they were pre 9/11, use it or lose it.
    There's lots of ________ on here who don't fit your particular stereotype, smearing us with goofball sophistry is what is out of line. It just makes gunowners look like *******s.

    I used 2 yrs of it. I also was one of the one's f'ed over by the VA because I was one of the first to sign up when it let you and didn't get a payment for school till around Nov. I ended up owing the VA back as the emergency loan they misstated which would come off your total benefits was a lie. I have money and time left. But I'm sure I will do 30 yrs with the railroad, so not sure I need another degree. I may get my CDL for work with it.

    We have 560-something students who are using their parent's benefits. This is going to really hurt them. I'm trying to find out why this was done and the only unofficial answer I'm getting is to save money.

    Republican sponsored, no less. Somebody better call Trump, and have him threaten a few people to get this fixed.

    Converted mine to post 9/11, paid for my MBA.

    Specifically because this kind of crap always happens. A promise from the government is only as good as the current Congress. Which is to say, possibly worthless at any given time.

    It's also why I don't think "giving up my retirement" by taking VSP was such a harship.

    This. It ALWAYS changes.
    I came in during VEAP 2. Which of course was a successor to VEAP. Which was a successor to various programs going back to the first GI bill.
    But shortly after I went in, it was succeeded by Montgomery GI bill, and I think there have been various versions of that program.
    It comes down to, LET'S DO SOMETHING FOR THE TROOPS.
    Followed quickly by, BUT DON'T SPEND TOO MUCH ON IT.

    Yeah, that's the ticket! What if that are already at home going to a local college?

    They are also disallowing retirees to get their retirement and disability pay at the same time. This change has gone through several iterations over the past few years, but it looks like real changes may be coming. What do you think about that one?
