VA Education Benefits
A variety of benefits, programs, and services exist to help you transition from military to civilian life, including benefits designed to facilitate your educational and vocational goals.
We're ready to help you understand your benefits, maximize the ones that you receive, and determine supplements to help you finance living, learning, and working as a veteran.
The GI Bill
"The" GI Bill can be misleading - your benefits will depend on what type of GI Bill you qualify for, and at what percent of full benefits. We can help you understand the difference between the Montgomery GI Bill, Post-9/11 GI Bill, and Forever GI Bill (Colmery Act). Depending on your time of service, we can also determine if you're eligible for full benefits or a pro-rate.
Already attempted school? We can help you find supplements for any portions of your GI Bill already used to finance education.
The GI Bill doesn't just apply to two-year and four-year degree programs. If you're interested in a trade, apprenticeship, or civil service, you may be able to apply your GI Bill toward that program and receive an educational stipend and housing allowance.
Also known as "Veteran Readiness and Employment", this VA program prepares you for entry into the civilian workforce through five employment-specific tracks based on your interests and previous experience. While we are not VR&E counselors ourselves, we work closely with the New England VR&E programs and can help you prepare for application to them.
If you're looking to enter the workforce with guidance, benefits, and professional advice, ask us how we can help you prepare for a VR&E program!
Boston MA, Manchester NH, and White River Junction VT all have regional VA offices with VR&E systems - and we're collaborators with them, too!
Financial & Economic Literacy Training
All good things come with budgets. If you're interested in learning more about how you can plan, prepare, and position yourself for financial success, we can help! We routinely hold workshops dedicated to financial literacy and can help you figure out a balance between spending, saving, and splurging.
