These questions will help either the Department of Education or your intended school determine if you (or through your parents) qualify for certain types of military aid. Some of these include:
Answer Yes to this question if you are currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, National Guard or Reserves on active duty for other than training purposes.
Answer No if you are currently not on active duty in the U.S. Armed forces or if you are a National Guard or Reserves enlistee in active duty for training purposes only.
These types of benefits are separate from the GI Bill and the Post 9/11 GI Bill, which are education-funding benefits that do not require a FAFSA to be filed in order to receive. If you or your parent is a veteran and you are interested in using the GI Bill to help fund your education costs, please contact your Veterans Affairs Office for further information.
