  • were honorably discharged.
  • contributed to VEAP before April 1, 1987.
  • served long enough to qualify.

Benefit guidelines

You will receive a monthly stipend for personal use for up to 36 months. Your stipend amount will be based on (1) your total contributions; (2) the number of months you contributed; (3) the type of training you are in; and (4) your training time. Your stipend will include matching funds from USDVA that equal two times your contributions, plus any U. S. Department of Defense contributions or kickers.

Benefits, generally, must be used within 10 years; however, the time limit may be shorter or longer in rare circumstances.
