I retired in 1993.  Are there still benefits available to me?  I do have 50% disability.  Blaine H.

With a retirement date of 1993 you were qualified for the Montgomery GI Bill - Active Duty (MGIB-AD).  However, you have gone beyond the ten year use it or lose time limit attached to the educational benefits available under the MGIB-AD.

This does not mean that all hope is lost.  Since September 11, 2001 virtually all of the states and territories have expanded the benefits available to veterans, their spouses and dependents.  To find out what your state or territory offers go to www.va.gov/statedva.htm.  You will find a listing of all the states and territories.  Click on your state or territory to find the contact information for your location. This could prove to be a valuable resource for you.

Another idea is to check out the Disabled American Veterans website at www.dav.org.  Click on the tab labeled Scholarships Available to see what might be available and fit your needs.  If you want to do a broader search of scholarships available to service members do a simple google of military scholarships.  This will produce a exhaustive list of opportunities.

A couple of final suggestions could also be very helpful to you.  First, work with your local Veterans Service Officer.  Second, work with the Educational Service Officer at the Institution of Higher Learning (IHL) that you are interested in attending.  Contacting them could discover other local resources available to you.
