56 Months Extension



I heard and read about several cases when the so called entitlement period of 48 have been extended to 56 months. I had read about 10% SC Veterans who used 56 months of entitlements. Since I am running out of entitlements it is certainly something that I could use myself in order to try to finish my coursework. Funny enough one of the main obstacle to finish the school through that program (chap 31) is the minimum and minute substandard living allowance, which now is going to have a substantial increase in order to keep some equity with the GI Bill allowance; difficult to understand why so many have to fail for the VA to realize that such a low allowance is one of main hindrances of the program. But coming back to the point, it would be beyond my understand that someone with a much more severe type of disability (currently I am rated 40% and have implants of rod, screws, pins, plats in my leg; with chronic pain, etc) could not obtain such an extension. Also I noted that my Voc. Rehab counselor is not even aware of the possibility of such an extension. It seems that many of the VA employees don't receive the proper jobs training.
