ABSTRACT

Post-9/11 GI Bill: Additional Actions Needed to Help Reduce Overpayments and Increase Collections, Accessible Version, Report to the Ranking Member, Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, U.S. Senate   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Highlights: "VA [Department of Veterans Affairs] provided $10.8 billion in Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits to almost 800,000 veterans in fiscal year 2014. GAO [Government Accountability Office] was asked to review overpayments for the program, which can create financial hardships for veterans who are generally required to pay them back and which can result in a significant loss of taxpayer dollars if they are not collected. This report examines (1) the extent of overpayments, (2) how effectively VA has addressed their causes, and (3) the effectiveness of VA's collection efforts."
