CHAPTER 33 (POST 9/11; a.k.a. FOREVER) GI BILL®
The Chapter 33 (Post 9/11; a.k.a. Forever) GI Bill® program is different than other GI Bill® programs in calculating how much assistance will be provided. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs bases their decision on what to pay on the Service Member or Veteran's amount of Chapter 33-qualifying service. The following will help identify how tier rates are calculated and what assistance is provided based on the corresponding tier rate.
