Chapter 35: Dependents’ Educational Assistance (DEA)

DEA is a monthly educational benefit entitlement program for dependents and survivors of veterans who have serious disabilities as a result of their service, or who died while on active duty or as a result of a service-related condition. DEA may be used for degree and certificate programs, apprenticeship, on-the-job training and more.

Children can generally receive benefits under DEA from age 18-26. In certain circumstances, eligibility can begin before or after this age range – the Department of Veterans Affairs notifies you in those cases. Eligibility and the timeframe for benefit use for spouses is determined by a variety of factors including if the servicemember is a veteran or deceased and the circumstances for each scenario.  

More information on eligibility, entitlement, payment can be found on the VA website here: http://www.benefits.va.gov/GIBILL/DEA.asp.
