      I know this is an old thread but, If someone used up all the POST 9/11 education benefits am I still able to receive the OJT and apprenticeship benefits?

        The VA will provide a maximum of 48 months of benefits total.

        I used the pre-9/11 GI Bill for 36 months and the post-9/11 GI Bill for 12 months, since I earned both... but it capped out at 48 months total.

        You can use the GI Bill in conjunction with other VA programs, but again it will cap out at 48 months of benefits total. The best person to ask is a veteran's benefits advisor. Most county governments have a veteran's department or agency.

          But if I used up all my POST 9/11 benefits am I still able to receive the benefits from the apprenticeship payments? The reason why I am asking here, is because I am currently in Afghanistan and the only info I can find on the VA website is to call. I will keep looking for a email address.

          If you qualify under a VA program you can use that program, up to a maximum of 48 months, or the maximum of the program. Apprenticeship and OJT are part of the post-9/11 GI Bill, so if you used all 36 month of the GI Bill up then no... but there may be another program you qualify to use for the other 12 months until you max out at 48. The only people who can give you a definite answer about your specific case is the VA. Focus on what you're doing now, get back from Afghanistan, and then worry about education benefits.

        Do you still get bah if the academy is a on living academy? Example Texas State trooper academy where you live on campus and I'm sure most state police academy is like that.

          You don't actually get BAH, you get a stipend at the rate of BAH for an E5 in your area... but yes.

          You get the stipend no matter what your living situation is.

            How do I calculate my potential gi bill earnings? If i get accepted. I would be going to Texas DPS academy in Austin, and Austin is fairly a high cost of living city.

            If I remember right, they use the zip of the school not the zip of your actual residence.
