Veterans Entitled to Education Benefits

The US Department of Veterans Affairs has an education benefit for veterans with remaining entitlement under the Montgomery G.I. Bill.

The VA will reimburse eligible applicants for the cost of licensing and certification exams not to exceed $2,000.00 per exam. These licensing and certification exams must be generally deemed necessary to pursue a trade or profession.

If you are an eligible veteran and would like to take advantage of this benefit, please submit the following items to the VA Regional Processing Office, P.O. Box 100022, Decatur, Georgia 30031-7022:
  • Your name and social security number,
  • The name of the exam you took and the date you took it,
  • The name and address of the organization issuing the license or certificate (not necessarily the organization that administered the exam),
  • The cost of the examination to be reimbursed, and
  • The following statement: “I authorize release of my examination information to the VA.”
