An Introduction to the GI Bill

Of all veterans' education benefits, the GI Bill is the best known. Under the GI Bill program, Army veterans can receive money for college tuition, which can be used at many different educational programs around the country.

The Old and New GI Bills

The Montgomery GI Bill (also known as the MGIB, the old GI Bill, or Chapter 30) was the primary program providing education benefits for veterans for decades. Under the MGIB, soldiers signed up for the GI Bill during enlistment and paid $1,200 during their first year of service. The MGIB has both an active duty and a selected reserve version, each with different requirements and benefits.

In August 2009, the Post-9/11 GI Bill (also known as the new GI Bill or Chapter 33) came into effect. The new GI Bill is different from the old one in many ways. Notably:

  • You don't need to sign up for or pay into this program. All members of the Army who have served at least 90 days of active duty after September 10, 2001 (not including active duty for training purposes) are eligible.
  • Both enlisted personnel and officers are eligible for the new GI Bill.
  • Reserve and National Guard personnel can also qualify, based on the total time they spent mobilized or deployed.
