Veterans Reimbursement and Scholarship Programs

Tab/Accordion Item

Upon completion of an eligible state examination for insurance agent/producer, adjuster or bail bondsman, veterans may apply for reimbursement through the Veteran Affairs website.

Applications for reimbursement may also be submitted by written request as indicated below.

Send Veteran’s Administration a signed and dated request with the following information:

  • Your Full Name
  • Your Mailing Address
  • Your Home Phone Number (with area code)
  • Your Social Security Number
  • Your VA File Number (if different from your Social Security Number)
  • Have you applied for VA benefits before? If no, you must access VA website at www.GIBILL.va.gov and apply for education benefits and send with this request for reimbursement.
  • Name of Test
  • Date Test Taken
  • Cost of Test (VA will not reimburse you for registration fees, preparation guides, processing fees, etc.)
  • A copy of your test results or a copy of your license or certification
  • Name & Address of Organization Issuing License
  • Statement: "I hereby authorize the release of my test information to the Department of Veterans Affairs"

***** IMPORTANT *****

Veterans may receive reimbursement of up to $2,000 per test but not more than the VA approved cost of the test. You may receive benefits to retake a test you didn’t pass. You may receive benefits to retake a test you passed if the test is required for recertification or to allow you to retain a license you already have.

You must be eligible for benefits in order to receive test reimbursement. Your total months of benefits will be reduced each time you receive reimbursement for a licensing or certification test.

If you have questions about licensing and certification reimbursement, or applying for benefits, you can access the VA site at  www.GIBILL.va.gov and click on "Ask a Question and Find Answers" or call directly at 1-888-GIBILL-1 (888-442-4551), or for the hearing-impaired call 800-829-4833.
