The WI GI Bill legislation is complex. Understanding the relationship among state and federal veterans benefits, and knowing which are best for your specific circumstance will require you to be well informed. You are urged to speak directly with the following resource people:

  • County Veterans Service Officer regarding Wisconsin Veterans Benefits programs (http://dva.state.wi.us/CVSO.asp),
  • Veterans Administration regarding federal benefits programs (http://www.gibill.va.gov/), and
  • School Veterans Certifying Officer at your campus (contact information available at http://www.uwhelp.wisconsin.edu/paying/veterans.aspx)
  • NOTICE: Changing to the Federal Post-9/11 GI Bill Benefit is an irrevocable decision. We recommend careful consultation with federal, state, and higher education veteran’s benefits staff about any decision to elect the Post-9/11 GI Bill benefit.
