VA Form 22-1990, Application for VA Education Benefits is a document used for applying for the veterans' educational benefits and assistance.
The latest version of the form was released by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in December 2016 and replaces the now obsolete November 2014 edition. An up-to-date VA Form 22-1990 fillable version is available for download below or can be found through on the Department of Veterans Affairs website.
The 22-1990 - also known as the GI Bill form - is applicable to several country-wide programs including the following:
VEAP is applicable to duty members that have joined the Army between January 1, 1977, and June 30, 1985, opened a contribution account before April 1, 1987, contributed from $25 to $2,700, completed their first period of service and were discharged or released from service under any conditions other than dishonorable. Servicemembers on active duty have the right to receive VEAP benefits if they have three or more months of contributions available.
The 22-1990 can be used for a college degree and certificate programs, technical and vocational courses, licensing and certification tests, apprenticeships or on-the-job training, hi-tech training, flight training, entrepreneurship training, certain entrance examinations, and correspondence courses. It cannot be used for vocational rehabilitation and employment benefits, Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry scholarship, transfer of entitlement, or national call to service. A person can apply for these benefits using other documents.
Earlier, the VA Form 22-1990 could be filled through the Veteran On-Line Application service (VONAPP). This program has been retired since September 2017 and the VONAPP website is no longer available to users.
