VA Resources Available to Dependents

Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance Program (DEA), Chapter 35          

The Survivors' and Dependents' Educational Assistance Program, Chapter 35, provides education and training opportunities to dependents of veterans who are permanently and totally disabled with a VA rating of 100% due to a service-related condition, or who died while on Active Duty or as a result of a service related condition. The program offers dependents up to 45 months of education benefits, which may be used for degree and certificate programs, apprenticeship, and on-the-job training. In addition, spouses may take a correspondence course. Remedial, deficiency, and refresher courses may be approved under certain circumstances.  Further information and eligibility can be found at:  https://www.calvet.ca.gov/VetServices/Pages/Survivor-Dependent-Education-Assistance-DEA-Chapter35.aspx

 

Transfer Post 9/11 GI Bill to Spouse and Dependents

The transferability option under the Post-9/11 GI Bill allows Servicemembers to transfer all or some unused benefits to their spouse or dependent children. The Department of Defense (DoD) determines whether or not you can transfer benefits to your family. Once the DoD approves benefits for transfer, the new beneficiaries apply for them at VA.  Further information and eligibility can be found at:  http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/post911_transfer.asp
