An Introduction to the Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB)

The Montgomery GI Bill Active Duty (MGIB), also known as the Veteran's GI Bill of Rights, provides military education benefits to active duty service members and veterans of the Army and other branches of the U.S. military. In order to qualify for Montgomery GI Bill benefits, you must have enrolled in the program while on active duty, and paid in a $1200 lump sum or $100 per month during your first 12 months in the Army or other military service.

Am I Eligible for Montgomery GI Bill Benefits?

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has laid out specific eligibility categories for the Montgomery GI Bill Active Duty. To be eligible for the MGIB, you must:

  • Have served for a minimum period of two continuous years or more
  • Received an honorable discharge
  • Have completed a high school diploma or GED.

Other factors, such as your dates of service, may influence your eligibility, so contact your local Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) office to discuss your specific situation. A quick call or meeting can help you determine your MGIB eligibility.
