June 16, 2006, Newsletter Issue #20: No "Double-Dipping"

Tip of the Week

If you are a Reservist, it may be tempting to file for both military education benefits; Montgomery GI Bill and the MGIB-SR or Selected Reserve programs. Unfortunately the rules are designed to let you use one or the other, but not both. Additionally, you may only use the same period of active duty to establish eligibility for one program.

Some people do qualify for both programs depending on the nature of their military service, but the system is designed to avoid confusion. When filing a claim for VA benefits the Veterans Administration will inform you which of these two military education benefits you are eligible to use.
