The term GI Bill® refers to any Department of Veterans Affairs education benefit earned by members of Active Duty, Selected Reserve and National Guard Armed Forces and their families. The benefit is designed to help service members and eligible veterans cover the costs associated with getting an education or training. The GI Bill has several programs and each is administrated differently — depending on a person\’s eligibility and duty status. More Details.
Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E)
Eligible Veterans and Service members may apply for either Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment benefits or for Education/Career Counseling on-line through eBenefits. Ill or injured Service members who have not yet received a SCD rating do not need to wait to apply. Service members expecting a discharge that is other than dishonorable who possess a VA memorandum or Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES) rating of 20 percent or more—as well as Service members currently going through a Physical Evaluation Board—may be eligible to receive VR&E services.

Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)
WIOA is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy. WIOA brings together, in strategic coordination, the core programs of Federal investment in skill development:
- employment and training services for adults, dislocated workers, and youth and Wagner-Peyser employment services administered by the Department of Labor (DOL) through formula grants to states; and
- adult education and literacy programs and Vocational Rehabilitation state grant programs that assist individuals with disabilities in obtaining employment administered by the Department of Education (DoED).
Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA)
The TAA Program seeks to provide adversely affected workers with opportunities to obtain the skills, credentials, resources, and support necessary to (re)build skills for future jobs. Any member of a worker group certified by the Department may be eligible to receive the following benefits and services at a local American Job Center: training, employment and case management services, job search allowances, relocation allowances, and income support in the form of Trade Readjustment Allowances (TRA). Reemployment TAA (RTAA) and Alternative TAA (ATAA), which provide wage supplements for reemployed older workers whose reemployment resulted in lower wages than those earned in their trade-affected employment, may also be available.

“I really enjoyed how the TLG instructors were able to relate concepts to real life scenarios. The program guided me through a lot of information that would be nearly impossible to get through on my own. The program quickly got me to a functional level that allowed me to be hired immediately following the program as an Associate Systems Engineer apprentice. I continue to grow my skills on the job and look forward to a long career in IT. “
“Do it! If you really want a career in this industry you’ve got to dive in head first and take the plunge. Expect and even WANT to make mistakes, especially in the beginning. Mistakes are one of, if not, THE best way to learn.
I really enjoyed the mini “bootcamp” that Michelle put together … it gave me the edge to succeed and I use the lessons I learned every day in my current position as a Software Engineer.”
“The TLG instructors were welcoming and supportive which made for a great learning experience. The opportunity is worth it!! You will be challenged every day but don’t doubt yourself. The personal growth is nearly limitless. Remember that no matter how large the task is you can always break it down into smaller and more manageable pieces. I am now working as a Cloud Support Associate. Thank you TLG!!”
