The Dependents Educational Assistance (DEA) Program
One area that many veterans have unique opportunities is in education. The government provides different education benefits in association with military service.
The Dependents Educational Assistance (DEA) program allows for education benefits to be passed to dependents, depending on their disability rating.
According to the Army Times: “If you qualify for permanent and total disability due to a service-connected disability, you could be eligible to pass education benefits to your dependent.” To learn more about the program, known as Chapter 35 benefits, see the article from Army Times below or visit the Veterans Administration.
