Court rules again to give veterans access to both Post 9/11 and Montgomery GI Bill education benefits | Military Times

Must Read

The Post 9/11 GI Bill provides 36 months of tuition assistance to veterans or their family members if they served for at least three years after September 11, 2001. This has become the main education benefit utilized by military members, followed by the Montgomery GI Bill, which also lasts for 36 months and provides pay outs at the end of a semester. The U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims has issued its final ruling that continues the previous decision that allows the VA to require veterans to give up their Montgomery Bill benefits in order to receive the Post 9/11 Bill. Officials claim this is done to prevent veterans from “doubling up,” but others argue that they should be eligible for both, just not at the same time.
