Choosing between GI Bill programs is made easier by visiting our GI Bill benefits calculator, which shows what each GI Bill program has to offer you.
While Post-9/11 GI Bill (Chapter 33) is usually the superior benefit, the following veterans should consider using the old GI Bill:
- Distance Learners: Receive a reduced living allowance with Post-9/11 GI Bill.
- Attending schools with low BAH rates.
- Active Duty who got out in 2002 or 2003 qualify for a lower percentage tier.
- Active Duty who only have less than 1 year of MGIB remaining can get 12 additional month by burning all your remaining MGIB first.
