When I enlisted in the military, I was promised the Army College Fund. With the new Post-9/11 GI Bill, will I still receive that extra benefit?
Yes, individuals eligible for a kicker will remain eligible under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. If eligible, you will be paid the kicker each month as an increase to your housing stipend. However, you will not receive your monthly kicker payment if you are on active duty, a veteran training at half time or less, or if you are pursuing distance learning.
