EntitlementVeterans Benefits

Entitlement Use

You should generally receive 36 months of full-time GI Bill benefits, otherwise known as your entitlement.

You’ll be charged one full day of entitlement for each day of full-time benefits paid (payable if you’re taking 12 or more credit hours). You’ll be paid for one month of your 36-month entitlement for each month of full-time enrollment.

If you’re enrolled part time with six credit hours, you’ll receive one-half pay and use up one-half month of your entitlement for each month in school. Therefore, as a part-time student, you could receive half-payment GI Bill benefits for 72 months.

Eligibility Limits

If your eligibility began on or after Oct. 1, 1992, your period of eligibility ends 14 years from your beginning date of eligibility, or on the day you leave the Selected Reserve.

If your eligibility began prior to Oct. 1, 1992, your period of eligibility ends 10 years from your beginning date of eligibility, or on the day you leave the Selected Reserve.
