Will Getting Married Affect My Finace’s GI Bill?

Q: My fianc├® just became a veteran this past summer. He is going to be enrolled in school full-time for the spring semester. If we get married now instead of later, will it affect the amount he will receive monthly from the GI Bill?

A: No, it won’t have any effect. If he is using the Montgomery GI Bill, then he will get a fixed $1,421 per month and he has to pay all his own tuition, fees, books, supplies and other education-related expenses.

If he is using the Post 9/11 GI Bill, his housing allowance is based on the zip code of his school and he will be paid as an E-5 with dependents. The VA will pay his school directly for his tuition and fees (up to the in-state maximum), and he will get the housing allowance and up to $1,000 per year in a book stipend – none of which will change when you marry him.
