G.I. Bill

I Just Retired And I Want to Know If My Daughter Can Use My GI Bill?

Q: Just retired from AF on 31 Dec 2010 as a JAG. Can my daughter use any or all of my GI Bill for college? She is 12.

A: Right now Sir, no she can’t if you did not make a Post 9/11 GI Bill transfer of benefits to her while you were still on active duty. Once you are out, it is too late.   If you still had the MGIB, that GI Bill did not have any transfer option to it, so that will not do her any good either.

Is It Possible to Use My Unspent Father's GI Bill for My Tuition?

Q: Hello, my father served for the Army, and apparently never collected on his G.I. Bill. He passed away late 2001, and I am starting up in college, I have heard it is possible to use his unspent G.I. Bill on my college tuition, but I wanted to make sure of this. If not, are there any benefits that I am eligible for because of this?

With the GI Bill 2.0 Change, What Will I Get for a Post 9/11 GI Bill Housing Allowance

Q: I have 2 questions. I was just on the VA website and noticed that the BAH will be changing next August so that its based off of the percentage of pursuance. So I assume that means if I go part-time (6 credits out of 12) that I would only get 50% of the BAH? -- my situation is I’m a reservist with 8 months active time, so I currently get only 50% of my BAH, but I do go to school full-time. Will I be receiving an increase or decrease in my BAH when this happens? What will my BAH be for 60014 zip code?

How Do I Get My MGIB Contribution Back?

Q: I signed up for the Montgomery GI Bill in Dec 2008 and I paid the $100 a month required for the first 12 months. But then I got medically retired after being active duty in the Air Force for just 1 year, 8 months, and 22 days. Do I still get my benefits and how do I get the money back that I paid into it? Thank you.
