Other Army personnel may qualify for the Veterans Educational Assistance Program, wherein the government matches the individualís contribution on a 2 for 1 basis. To be eligible, Army personnel must have had service for the first time between January 1, 1977 and June 30, 1985, and contributed money to VEAP (or DOD contributed money) while on active duty. In addition, personnel must have enrolled in and contributed to VEAP (or had money contributed for you by DOD) before April 1, 1987. Other requirements for eligibility include:

  • served for a continuous period of 181 days or more
  • discharge or release from service was under conditions other than dishonorable
  • completed 24 continuous months of active duty if enlisted for the first time after September 7, 1980, or entered active duty as an officer or enlistee after October 16, 1981.
  • Army personnel may be entitled to receive up to 36 months of educational benefits. Usually, the number of monthly payments for full-time training will be the same as the number of months contributed to VEAP. A maximum of 36 months can be earned under this program.
