Earlier this month the Department of Veterans Affairs launched a new online GI Bill Comparison tool, enabling veterans, servicemembers, and their dependents to get at-a-glance information about their Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits. The tool allows users to quickly calculate their benefits as well as get useful information about colleges and universities approved by the VA, and college affordability data.
The new tool is a response to President Obama's Executive Order 13607, directing agencies to execute "Principles of Excellence" for education institutions that engage with veterans, servicemembers, and their families, as well as ensure those groups have access to quality information with which to make informed choices about their education benefits through the VA.
What do you think of the new tool? Have you tried it out? Do you find it useful?
