What inspired me to create TransitioningVeteran.com was the amount of information out there on benefits, but the lack of effort to get this information to us veterans. One other benefit that very few even realize exists, is the opportunity to collect GI Bill benefits while On The Job Training. Though some veterans are taking advantage of this benefit, many more do not know it exists. Unfortunately you won’t see this information advertised anywhere, instead you will have to do some searching and there is no better place to start than online.
Veterans Affairs has the information and answers for veterans looking to collect their GI Bill benefits while conducting OJT. This information is so important because many veterans don’t collect GI Bill benefits since they choose not to attend school, not knowing they are eligible to collect under this VA program. No veteran should let their GI Bill benefits go to waste, you paid into this and once time runs out, it is gone.
Let’s break this down with some examples and where to go to find this info about collecting your GI Bill benefits while OJT:
1st stop is the Veterans Affairs website. Here you will find all the information needed to learn more about GI Bill benefits while OJT.
Examples of Jobs
Police, Fire Fighter, Apprenticeships such as a union worker…
So if you have decided to hold off from school and instead gain employment, just be sure to look into collecting GI Bill benefits while your in training for your new job.
