The Department of Veterans Affairs unveiled a new online tool today allowing current and former service members or their dependents to compare colleges and universities, calculating what their G.I. Bill benefits provide at each institution.

The link provides such information as the amount of tuition the government will cover for a school, how many veterans are attending and graduation rates.

The Post-9/11 G.I. Bill that was passed in 2008 provides education benefits to veterans or service members who were on active duty status for at least 90 days after Sept. 10, 2001. Since 2009, $30 billion has gone toward higher education for veterans, troops and family members.

The government also launched online sites where troops or veterans can file a complaint if they have problems using their educational benefits.
