GI bill and military tuition assistance complaint system launched

February 3, 2014

Veterans returning to school and having problems with deceptive practices or predatory loans programs can get help from a new online consumer complaint system. Launched recently, the new system allows veterans, service members and their families to report problems with any educational institution that gets funding through the Post -9/11 GI Bill and the DOD Military Tuition Assistance Program . The Veterans Administration has distributed over $34 billion since 2009 when the post-9/11 program began. And that kind of money attracts fraudsters. Some veterans have paid for questionable degree programs that provide few job prospects. Feedback collected through the new system will help identify bad actors and ensure that high quality academic and student support services are available for members of the military community, who receive educational support from the federal government. For more information or to submit a complaint, go to http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/feedback.asp or http://www.militaryonesource.mil/voluntary-education?content_id=274604 .
