The Veterans Administration is now accepting applications for the Post 9/11 GI Bill for Education Benefits.

All the information and links are detailed in the email below. If you have any questions or need assistance please contact Sergio Rodriguez, Deputy Director of Erie County Veterans Service Agency and resident Education Expert; 716.858.4834 or

The Department of Veterans Affairs is now accepting and processing applications for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. You should complete and submit application form available online and will receive a letter explaining VA’s decision regarding your eligibility for the program.

The form requires that individuals currently eligible for another education benefit make an irrevocable election from their existing program to the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Typically individuals who are eligible for more than one benefit may use a combined total of 48 months of entitlement. Therefore, for those individuals eligible for the Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB) program, please be advised that if you have entitlement remaining under the MGIB, the number of months of Post-9/11 GI Bill entitlement you will be eligible for will be equal to the number of months remaining under MGIB. However, if you exhaust all of your MGIB entitlement, then you may be entitled to a maximum of 12 additional months of entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Payments for the Post-9/11 GI Bill will not be processed until August 1, 2009. Click here to access the application form which includes instructions for submitting completed applications.

The Department of Veterans Affairs administers the following benefit programs. If you need additional assistance, or information, please call the toll-free number 1-888-GI-BILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) to speak with a Veterans Benefits Counselor.
