It’s July 4th weekend already! This past week in the blog covered some financial aspects of the GI Bill, the mail order pharmacy system and the American Women Veterans, an organization designed to help all veterans, but most especially women.
With the passage of GI Bill 2.0 and its implementation starting in August, three major financial changes will happen without further legislative intervention:
- Elimination of interval pay
- Prorated housing allowance
- $17,500 cap for students paying out-of-state tuition or attending a private school
The details of these changes are described within.
This month, the VA’s Consolidated Mail Outpatient Pharmacy, or the mail-order pharmacy, received a 2011 Customer Service Champion award from J.D. Power. With this program being so highly recognized, more veterans may be inclined to use the program.
We’d like to bring attention to an organization that we feel is especially noteworthy. The American Women Veterans is a non-profit organization that started small, but has developed into a sophisticated team oriented toward “preserving and promoting the legacy of servicewomen, veterans, and their families.”
