Supreme Court gives some military veterans more generous educational benefits

via Forbes

The US Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of a decorated US Army veteran, James Rudisill, in his long-running dispute with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) over eligibility for educational benefits under the GI Bill.

Rudisill served both before and after 9/11, qualifying under two versions of the GI Bill, each providing up to 36 months of benefits with a combined 48-month cap.

Rudisill argued he had 10 months remaining under the old program plus another year under the new one, but the VA denied the additional year.

The high court found the VA miscalculated Rudisill’s eligibility.

The decision could impact up to 1.7 million veterans with similar service histories, though the VA disputed that number was that high.
