The Department of Veterans Affairs has announced the Post-9/11 GI Bill rates for the 2019-2020 school year. These rates will be effective on Aug. 1, 2019. The Montgomery GI Bill and Dependents' Education Assistance programs will see a rate change on Oct. 1, 2019. By law, the GI Bill rate increase is tied to the average cost increase of undergraduate tuition in the U.S. For the 2019-2020 school year, that increase will average 3.4%. More than 80 percent of those taking advantage of their GI Bill benefits are doing so through the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Read more about the increases on Military.com.
