Does My Call-Up Time Reset My Montgomery GI Bill Delimiting Date?

Q: Does my time to use my MGIB start over after 7 months of active duty with the Army Reserves?

A: It really depends on which MGIB we are talking about. If you had prior active duty, and qualified for the Montgomery GI Bill – Active Duty (MGIB-AD) , then yes, your 14-year delimiting date would start from your last discharge date.

If you are talking about the Montgomery GI Bill – Selected Reserves (MGIB-SR), then no, it does not reset your delimiting date back to the beginning, but it does extend it out by the length of your deployment, plus 4 months. However, you still have to stay in a Reserve Component to use your benefit. If you get out, your benefit ends.

The other GI Bill you might want to look at is the Post 9/11 GI Bill. The minimum eligibility requirement is 90-days on active duty which you have. With 7-months, you would be at the 50% tier, meaning the VA would pay 50% of your tuition and eligible fees and you would get 50% of both the housing allowance and book stipend. Even at 50%, you might end up making more money than with the MGIB-SR, if that is the GI Bill you currently have. It is worth looking into.
