DHR Veterans Benefits

Veterans know they can use the GI Bill to pay for costs of education. However, many are unaware that they can also receive up to $15,480 (Active duty veterans) or $4,449 (Reserve Component) in tax free benefits for training 24 months in an On-The-Job (OJT) or Apprenticeship Training Program. The OJT Program offers eligible veterans an alternative way to use their benefits. Under OJT, veterans learn occupations by performing each job process described in a training program. While training, eligible participants receive monthly education benefits from the US Veterans Administration (in addition to their DHR salary). Once enrolled the DHR veteran has his/her supervisor sign off that they worked 30+ hours - that’s it!

If you are a DHR employee in a non supervisory/managerial position; within 10 years of honorable discharge; and contributed to a GI Bill program, YOU ARE PROBABLY ELIGIBLE!!
