Federal GI Bills

Montgomery GI Bill

The Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB) is available to those who enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces. There are two main programs:

  • Montgomery GI Bill Active Duty
    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.
    Benefits are payable for 10 years following your release from honorable active service.
  • Montgomery GI Bill Selected Reserve
    For Reservists with a six-year obligation in the Selected Reserve who are actively drilling.
    Your eligibility for the program ends the day you leave the Selected Reserve.

Post 9/11 GI Bill

For approved programs, the Post-9/11 GI Bill provides up to 36 months of education benefits. 

If your release from active duty was before January 1, 2013, there is a 15-year time limitation for use of benefits.  For individuals whose last discharge date is on or after January 1, 2013, the time limitation has been removed.
