Do AGR Personnel Qualify for the Post 9/11 GI Bill?

Q: I was active duty Army prior to 9/11, I got out and went AGR. I am Title 38 and I have asked, but I can’t get a correct answer, on whether I qualify for the GI Bill or not. I would like to transfer it to my children. Can you please let me know if I qualify for anything? Thanks!

A: Just to clarify something for the readers, AGR personnel are Tile 32 of U.S. Code 38 and not Title 38. As a Title 32 employee, you do not qualify for the Post 9/11 GI Bill, but you do for the Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB), which is the same GI Bill you had while you were on active duty in the Army.

The basic difference is Title 32 employees work for a state governor where Title 10 personnel work for the U.S. President. That is why when reserve personnel are federally mobilized, they go on Title 10 orders because their responsible entity switches from state to the federal.

Unfortunately, the MGIB doesn’t have a dependent transfer benefit feature in it. You still have, and will retain, MGIB benefits for up to 10-years after your discharge date, so you have benefits you can use, however, none are transferable to your children.

To get the dependent transfer option, you would need to have the Post 9/11 GI Bill at the 100% tier level, have at least six years on active duty with at least three years after September 10, 2001, and agree to sign up for an additional four years. If you would be within four years of retiring, the amount of additional time required would be less than four years.
