If you’re a military veteran and you’d like to find out the status — or the amount — of your G.I. Bill benefits, you don’t have to travel to a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) location or even pick up the phone. You can view (and print) your education benefits entirely from an online portal now provided to current and former service members.

Click here to do so — and check your G.I. Bill benefits.

If you’d like more information on this valuable veteran resource, or would like to explore other education options the VA provides — like the Yellow Ribbon Program, tuition assistance, transferring the G.I. Bill to a dependent or spouse, benefit rates for books and tuition, or links to services provided by VSOs (Veterans Service Organizations) like accredited representatives that can lend a hand in all of the above processes — simply click here.

On this same page, you can also click to apply for education benefits if you haven’t before (it’s the green button) or utilize the G.I. Bill Comparison Tool, which can help you figure out the best institution for your specific wants and needs (it’s the blue button).
