Forever GI Bill to Launch in August

The benefits under the new “Forever GI Bill” will be ready to go into effect Aug. 1, with the exception of a few IT glitches on housing allowances, Department of Veterans Affairs officials said Wednesday.

“We hit the ground running and we haven’t slowed down” on implementing the bill, but the technology was not quite ready to handle two provisions in the complicated formula for housing allowances, said retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Robert Worley, director of education services at the VA.
