The final three features we would like to highlight in GIBenefits portal application for students are the Servicemember/Dependent Information tab, and Declare Benefits tab, and Upload Documents tab.
Servicemember/Dependent Information tab
To provide the information sought in the Servicemember/Dependent Information tab, students can reference their eBenefits document or their certificate of eligibility. The Servicemember/Dependent Information is required one-time only, but students may choose to update as necessary. The details provided in the Servicemember/Dependent Information tab is required for declaring benefits, and it will assist the School Certifying Official better manage the certification process. Students should fill out the Servicemember/Dependent Information as accurately as possible.
We encourage all servicemembers or dependents, regardless if using GI BIll benefits, to submit the required information in the Servicemember/Dependent Information tab to be eligible for other services and benefits at Temple.
