For Veterans and Service members with service-connected disabilities so severe that they cannot
immediately consider work.

Reserve Programs
Ch. 1606 - Montgomery GI Bill Selected Reserve Pamphlet (.pdf, 300K)

MGIB-SR program provides education and training benefits to eligible members of the Selected Reserve, including the Army Reserve, Navy Reserve, Air Force Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve and Coast Guard Reserve, and the Army National Guard and the Air National Guard. Eligibility for this program is determined by the Selected Reserve components and VA makes the payments.

Ch. 1607 - REAP Pamphlet (.pdf, 1838K)

REAP provides educational assistance to members of the Reserve components called or ordered to active duty in response to a war or national emergency declared by the president or Congress. The National Defense Authorization Act of 2016 ended REAP on November 25, 2015. Some individuals will remain eligible for REAP benefits until November 25, 2019.

The Post-9/11 GI Bill in many ways has replaced REAP because it also provides educational assistance benefits for Reserve and National Guard members called to active duty on or after September 11, 2001, and in many cases provides a greater benefit than REAP.

Chapter 35 - Dependents Educational Assistance Program (.pdf, 816K)

The Survivors' and Dependents' Educational Assistance (DEA) Program offers education and training opportunities to eligible dependents of Veterans who are permanently and totally disabled due to a service-related condition or of Veterans who died while on active duty or as a result of a service-related condition.

Restored Entitlement Program for Survivors (REPS).  The REPS allowance is a payment to certain surviving spouses and children of individuals that died

  • on active duty prior to August 13, 1981, or
  • as a result of an service-connected disability that was incurred or aggravated prior to August 13, 1981.
Vietnam/Cold War Era
Chapter 32: Veterans Educational Assistance Program (.pdf, 113K)

VEAP is available to Post-Vietnam era Veterans if you elected to make contributions from your military pay to participate in this education benefit program. 

Chapter 34 Vietnam Era GI Bill (.pdf, 6083K)

Chapter 34 provided education benefits to individuals who served on Active Duty after January 31st, 1955 and prior to January 1st, 1977. The benefit expired on December 31st, 1989. However, Public Law 98-525 authorized the conversion of the Vietnam Era G.I. Bill to the Montgomery G.I. Bill. This conversion enables many Vietnam Era veterans to qualify for benefits under Chapter 30.

Veterans eligible for this conversion are generally referred to as Chapter 34/30 beneficiaries. Entitlements include monthly financial support for participation in VA-approved education and training programs. Payment rates are adjusted based upon the number of dependents.
