GI Bill benefits help you pay for college, graduate school, and training programs. Since 1944, the GI Bill has helped qualifying Veterans and their family members get money to cover all or some of the costs for school or training. If you applied for and were awarded Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits, your GI Bill Statement of Benefits will show you how much of your benefits you’ve used and how much you have left to use.
The Montgomery GI Bill offers eligible recipients a monthly stipend while they are attending classes at a qualified training institution. This award is available to those who enlist in the U.S. military. There are two main programs: Montgomery GI Bill Active Duty (MGIB-AD) is for active duty members who enroll and pay $100 per month for 12 months and are then entitled to receive a monthly education benefit once they have completed a minimum service obligation. Montgomery GI Bill Selected Reserve (MGIB-SR) is for reservists with a six-year obligation in the selected reserve who are actively drilling.
