Jr. Vice Commander’s Corner: Ed Velazquez According to an AP report, the Senate may soon have the chance to vote on whether or not to remove the time limit for GI Bill benefits. Currently veterans have 10 years to use their Montgomery GI BIll (or 15 years to use their Post-9/11 GI Bill). the so-called delimiting date is determined by the veterans last discharged date. Senator Richard Blumenthal announced his new bill on Tuesday, May 28, saying the new bill would repeal the "unfair and arbitrary time limits." Blumenthal said more than 2 million veterans who missed the 10 year expiration date have been denied the benefits despite paying the required Montgomery GI Bill enrollment fee of $1200. While the bill would not have an immediate effect on Post 9/11 vets, it would restore the GI Bill for many Vietnam, Cold-War, and Gulf era veterans who were unable to take advantage of their benefits within the 10 years after discharge
