Chapter 35 Dependents’ Educational Assistance

Dependents’ Educational Assistance provides education and training opportunities to eligible dependents or certain veterans. Please review the pamphlet for a complete overview of Chapter 35 Dependents Educational Assistance. A recipient’s benefit amount is affected by their rate of pursuit (number of credit hours being taken divided by the number of credit hours considered to be full-time). Click here (Enrollment Status Requirements) to view the VA Enrollment Requirements.

All benefit payments are made directly to the student, not to the school. Benefits are paid in arrears (after the training period). For example, a student receives payment for August at the beginning of September. Click here to see the VA Rate Tables for Chapter payment amounts.

To be eligible you must be a spouse, son or daughter (including stepchild or adopted child) of a:

  • Veteran who is permanently and totally disabled as the result of, or dies of, a service-connected disability. The disability must arise out of or be aggravated by active duty.
  •  Veteran with a permanent and total service-connected disability who dies from any cause.
  • Service member who is missing in action or is captured in line of duty and is currently being held by a hostile force.
  • Service member who is currently being forcibly detained or interned in line of duty by a foreign government or power.

A recipient may generally receive benefits under this program from age 18 to 26 (eight years). If you are eligible as a child of a veteran, your marital status does not affect your eligibility for DEA.
