Dependents' Educational Assistance


Dependents' Educational Assistance provides education and training opportunities to eligible sons, daughters or spouses of:
  • Veterans who died or are permanently and totally disabled as the result out of active service in the Armed Forces
  • Veterans who died while a service-connected disability was in existence
  • Servicemembers who are missing in action or captured in line of duty by a hostile force
  • Servicemembers forcibly detained or interned by a foreign government or power
  • Servicemembers who are hospitalized or receive outpatient treatment for a service-connected permanent and total disability and are likely to be discharged for that disability
This federal program offers dependents up to 45 months of education benefits. For more information, visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website.
