Check Post-9/11 GI Bill Statement of Benefits

If you were awarded Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits, your GI Bill Statement of Benefits will show you how much of your benefits you’ve used and how much you have left to use for your education or training. These education benefits can help cover some or all of the costs for school or training. You’ll be able to view this benefit statement only if you were awarded education benefits.
