Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Increases Post-9/11 GI Bill® Benefit Levels

Current and prospective NSU students eligible for education benefits under the Post-9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33) may see an increase in benefits effective August 1, 2020. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) pays Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits at different rates (known as benefit levels) based on length of service. Effective August 1, 2020, rates will change as follows:

  • 40% benefit level will be eliminated
  • Students that were previously eligible for 40% are now eligible for 50%
  • Students that were previously eligible for 50% are now eligible for 60%

After the change goes into effect, veterans may use the GI Bill® Comparison Tool to determine the entitlement they can receive for their education, training, and housing. For more information, please view the VA’s Consolidation of Benefit Level Postcard or visit the financial aid website.
