Am I eligible for the New GI Bill benefits while on Active Duty

Service members using their Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) benefits while on active duty will have their tuition/fees paid for and receive an annual book stipend, but they do not qualify for the monthly housing allowance.

Active duty servicemembers with less than 3 years of Post-9/11 service will receive lower benefits depending on what tier of benefits they qualify for. For example if an active duty servicemember has served 2 years of active duty then they will qualify for 80% of the Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits.
