The Post-9/11 GI Bill Statement of Benefits sample is a document generated through the Vets.gov portal that provides details on remaining entitlement, eligibility percentage, and benefits end date for beneficiaries who have already applied for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. We encourage schools to accept this document in lieu of a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to verify students’ entitlement and eligibility for Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. The information is real-time data pulled from the same system used by VA education benefit processors.
This downloadable statement will help reduce wait times associated with requesting a new COE and free up our Call Center resources to assist more callers. New applicants will still be required to apply on vets.gov and will receive their initial COE in the mail after processing.
Beneficiaries who have applied for education benefits and received a decision must create a vets.gov account to access the Statement of Benefits. With a username and password, beneficiaries can access the Statement of Benefits by completing the following steps:
- Log in to Vets.gov
- Select “Your Account”
- Choose “Get your Post-9/11 GI Bill Statement of Benefits”
- Click “Print Statement of Benefits”
