Veterans who want to start a career in real estate can now do so with their GI Bill® benefits through real estate schools licensed by Illinois REALTORS®.
GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government web site at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/
The Illinois REALTORS® Licensing & Training Center is the only real estate school in the state which can provide the training under the GI Bill®.
Here’s how it works:
The GI Bill® benefits will only apply to LIVE Pre-License classes
. (excludes on-line, webinar or home study courses) Member associations and education partners who conduct live classes with Illinois REALTORS® Licensing & Training Center may participate.
Under the guidelines, a qualified veteran pays all course costs upfront to the branch providing the live training. The branch partner sends the Request for Veterans Benefits form to email@example.com
, which applies to the government for the reimbursement. Please note, it is up to the Department of Veterans Affairs whether or not the Veteran qualifies for the GI Bill® benefit.
- Who’s eligible: Anyone who started their coursework after July 1, 2014. Those participating must meet guidelines for the GI Bill®. (Participants can call (888) 442-4551 to learn if they qualify.)
