Should a student utilize Post 9/11 GI bill benefits?
Students should consider a number of questions in determining which VA education benefit is the best choice at this time. Some of those questions include:
- Which benefit pays more?
- What Post 9/11 GI Bill tier (which impacts the benefit amount) is the student eligible for?
- Does the student have remaining entitlement under other VA Education Programs that would be best utilized prior to making use of Post 9/11 GI benefits?
In making the choice of benefit, students should look at remaining entitlement under other VA Education Programs that would be best utilized prior to making use of Post 9/11 GI benefits.
Students who are eligible for Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits AND two or more other VA education benefits must make an irrevocable choice to give up ONE of the other education benefits but may retain TWO education benefits. Students may be able to change which of the two education benefits to draw from depending upon eligibility. Also, active duty veterans that are qualified for both Montgomery GI Bill and Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits and utilize all of their MGIB benefits first will qualify for an additional 12 months of educational benefits under the Post 9/11 GI Bill (48 months of educational benefits in total).
Please be aware that if a student chooses Post-9/11 GI Benefits, THIS CHOICE IS IRREVOCABLE. A student cannot retract the choice and switch to another educational benefit.
