Am I eligible for the GI Bill?


This question can be very complex due to the several different criteria for eligibility and the changes that can occur to legislation concerning these benefits. The best way to determine your eligibility is to contact the Department of Veterans Affairs directly at 1-888-GIBILL1 or 1-888-442-4551. The Delgado Office of Veterans Affairs does not have access to all the records that are needed to determine eligibility and thus cannot make the final judgments on eligibility. More specific information concerning each chapter of the GI Bill is available below.
