Chapter 34/30 – Old Montgomery GI Bill – Vietnam Era


Benefits for veterans under the Old Montgomery GI Bill were terminated December 31, 1989.  Some benefits for these veterans were carried over to the new Chapter 30 Montgomery GI Bill.

Beginning August 1, 2011, break (or interval pay) will no longer be payable under MGIB-AD except during periods your school is closed as a result of an Executive Order of the President or an emergency (such as a natural disaster or strike). For example, if your Fall term ends on December 15th and your Spring term begins January 10th, your January housing allowance will cover 15 days in December and your February housing allowance will cover 21 days in January.

Proper documentation must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office by the student in order to originate the processing of VA enrollment certifications and related processes.
