CH35 – Dependent Education Assistance

Dependent Education Assistance provides education and training opportunities to eligible dependents of veterans who are permanently and totally disabled due to a service-related condition, or who died while on active duty or as a result of a service-related condition. The program offers up to 45 months of full-time education benefits and is paid monthly via direct deposit to you as the student.  With this program, no money is sent directly to the school, so it is your responsibility to pay for your charges, either out-of-pocket or via financial aid from your school, if applicable.  To check the most current payment rates for Chapter 35 DEA please click here.
