To amend title 38, United States Code, to eliminate the time limitation for the use of entitlement by certain veterans under the Post-9/11 Educational Assistance Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Time of Service Act This bill adjusts the time limitation on the use of a veteran's educational assistance entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Specifically, veterans' entitlements shall not expire for those who were discharged or released from active duty on or after January 1, 2001.

 

I am pleased to cosponsor HR 1989, the Time of Service Act. This bill removes arbitrary deadlines to provide veterans with greater flexibility to use their benefits & pursue their education. (2/2)
