Military and Veteran Support:
Detailed Inventory of Federal Programs to Help Servicemembers Achieve Civilian Employment
GAO-19-97R: Published: Jan 17, 2019. Publicly Released: Jan 17, 2019.
We identified the available education and employment benefits to help servicemembers, veterans, and their families achieve civilian jobs. We found 11 agencies offering 45 programs. A 12th agency also administered a tax exclusion for GI Bill benefits, which allows recipients to exclude these benefits from their taxable income.
We found no existing inventory that could easily give Congress or potential participants a complete picture of available benefits. The lack of such an inventory limits efforts to make government more effective and efficient.
