I have received Veterans Affairs money for on the job training.

This answer was rated:

I have received Veteran's Affairs money for on the job training. My wife and I have been seperated for a year. We have a child together who I pay child support for. We have not yet filed papers for a divorce. Is she entitled to any of this money.
She is entiled to a share of any income considered wages, including this money since it was given to act as your wages for the training period.

Thank you for your insight, however this money is in addition to my wages and works similar to a GI Bill for college. Does that make any difference -Sorry question mark doesn't work.

If these benefits do not go directly to you, but to the employer, then she would not be entitled, just like GI bill money that is paid to you for tuition and expenses. Generally the only veterans benefits not subject to marital division are disability benefits, but if this is an education benefit that gets paid to the employer then she would not be entitled to it.
