If I Opted for CLRP, When Am I Eligible for the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill?

Q: When I enlisted, I had to waiver the Montgomery GI Bill to receive the CLRP (loan repayment) benefits. Am I still eligible for the new GI bill after 4 years of active duty service after 9/11?

A: Yes you are eligible for the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill, but at a less-than-full-benefit level. When you signed up for CLRP, you incurred a three-year commitment.

You fulfilled that commitment one year ago, so you only have one year of service applicable to your Post 9/11 G.I. Bill eligibility. That puts you at the you at the 60% level. What does this mean to you? It means you will only get:

  • 60% of your tuition paid by the VA;
  • 60% of your housing allowance paid to you;
  • 60% of your book stipend.

Also, because you are not at the 100% level, nor do you have the required years of service, you will not have the option to transfer any of your Post 9/11 G.I. Bill education benefits to your spouse or dependent children.

If you like the Army way of life, I suggest you stay with it. Once you serve an additional two years, you will be at the highest tier level and you can reap all the benefits, except the transfer option, of this great G.I. Bill. The transfer option comes at six years of service and agreeing to serve an additional four years.
