Cracking the Code – VA Benefits Based on Your Training

Cracking the Code: VA Benefits Based on Your Training

The Chapter 30 VA Benefits Pay Chart provides a comprehensive breakdown of the benefits available to veterans, assisting them in pursuing education and training opportunities.

The monthly rate or payment amount is determined by two crucial factors: the type of education or training and the number of courses taken or the progress made in on-the-job training or apprenticeship programs.

Eligible veterans may receive less than the full rate if enrolled in fewer courses, with fewer clock hours per week, undergoing on-the-job training, participating in an apprenticeship program, or having served less than three continuous years on active duty.

However, those with kickers or participants in the $600 Buy-Up program may receive additional monthly funds.

How much do you get in benefits depending on your training?

For those who served at least three continuous years on active duty, the Montgomery GI Bill-Active Duty (MGIB-AD) rates, effective from October 1, 2023, to September 30, 2024, offer varying amounts based on the type of institution.

For institutions of higher learning, rates differ for full-time, 3/4-time, and 1/2-time enrollment, with prorated payments for partial-month attendance. In-state tuition rates at public schools may be applicable, even for veterans who haven’t lived in the state.

As for non-college degree programs, trade, and vocational schools, the rates and prorated payment structures mirror those of higher learning institutions, with the possibility of in-state tuition rates.

On-the-job training and apprenticeships receive varying monthly payments based on the training duration, with decreasing amounts as training progresses. Correspondence training and flight training also have specific payment structures.

For those who served between two and three years on active duty, often referred to as the “2-year” rates, the MGIB-AD rates are applicable, with similar structures for higher learning institutions, non-college degree programs, on-the-job training, apprenticeships, correspondence training, and flight training.
