I got a "certificate of eligibility" from the VA to buy a home using my GI Bill benefits. The deal on the house fell through. Do I need to get another certificate when I try to buy another home?
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, certificates of eligibility generally are valid until used. There are exceptions: certificates issued to military on active duty are valid only while the person remains on active duty. Persons who qualify based on reserve or National Guard service will see their eligibility expire Sept. 30, 2007.
