Aleks Morosky, national legislative director for Military Order of the Purple Heart, said there have been 52,598 Purple Heart recipients who were wounded in action during post-9/11 conflicts, though it’s unclear how many would immediately benefit from this provision.

An estimated 660 Purple Heart recipients each year over the next 10 years will be able to take advantage of the increased benefits.

Previously, Purple Heart recipients were beholden to the same time-in-service qualifications for the GI Bill as other service members.

This meant that Purple Heart recipients without a service-connected disability who did not reach 36 months of service were only eligible for a percentage of the benefits and not the full amount.

So, if a service member dies after transferring 35 months of benefits to one child and one month of benefits to another, for example, the family would not be able to make future changes to the GI Bill’s distribution among that service member’s dependents.

Scholarships of up to ,000 will be available for eligible GI Bill users starting in August 2018.1, 2018 and will only apply to service members who enroll in GI Bill benefits after that date.No one currently receiving a housing stipend from the VA will see a reduction in benefits.Only veterans or surviving family members of deceased service members are eligible for this scholarship — not dependents using transferred benefits.“We’ve been getting calls for several years now, beginning with the collapse of Corinthian (Colleges), from student veterans whose lives were put on hold,” said Will Hubbard, vice president of government affairs for the nonprofit, which has more than 500,000 student members.
