An Introduction to Army Veterans' Education Benefits

Today, there are numerous education benefits programs available for veterans, their spouses, and dependents. Here is a step-by-step guide to education benefits for Army veterans and their families.

GI Bill

Since its creation, the GI Bill has been the cornerstone educational benefit for veterans and their families. Today, it exists in several forms including the Montgomery GI Bill and the Post-9/11 GI Bill.

Montgomery GI Bill - Active Duty (MGIB-AD)

If you served at least 36 months on active duty, and paid the $1,200 contribution, you can get paid up to $1,368 per month, for up to 36 months, to go to school. The MGIB-AD entitlement has an expiration date that many veterans tend to overlook--you must use the benefit within 10 years from the date of your discharge. If not, you lose your VA education benefits along with the $1,200 you paid into the program.

You can use your MGIB-AD education benefit for:

  • college, business, technical or vocational courses
  • correspondence courses
  • certification tests
  • apprenticeships
  • on-the-job training
  • flight training
