Veterans Educational Assistance Program (VEAP)

Chapter 32

Who qualifies?

Veterans who first entered on active duty between 1/1/77 and 6/30/85 contributed to an education account to establish eligibility. Contribution must have been made by March 31, 1987. The maximum contribution for each participant was $2,700. Department of Defense funds equal to twice the contribution are added to the veteran’s account. Veterans have 10 years from the date of release from active duty to use VEAP benefits.
