This pamphlet provides a summary of the educational benefits available to dependents of deceased veterans, or those veterans missing in action or forcibly detained, under Chapter 35 of Title 38 U.S. Code, Public Law 101-237, the Veterans' Educational Assistance Program. The pamphlet, in question and answer format, includes information to help in understanding how qualified persons can receive payments under the program, and offers suggestions on where to go to for help and to get more detailed information. Twenty-five specific questions cover such concerns as eligibility, how long educational assistance is available, how much assistance one can receive, types of training allowed and the restrictions that exist, counseling availability, criteria for continuing financial support, and what responsibilities the recipient has in regard to enrollment changes and payment discrepancies.
