HOW DOES MY GI BILL WORK FOR THE POLICE Academy?
Rather than redeeming your GI Bill benefits for college tuition, you can use these benefits to help cover your expenses while training to be a police officer. GI Bill coverage is not the same for all veterans . If you have a post-9/11 GI Bill, your on-the-job training coverage will be different from those with the Montgomery GI Bill.
POST-9/11 GI BILL
Post-9/11 GI Bill recipients will receive 100 percent of your applicable monthly housing allowance (MHA) for the first six months of training. After each six-month period of training, your MHA will decrease by 20 percent.
MONTGOMERY BILL (MGIB-AD AND MGIB-SR)
Active duty Montgomery Bill recipients (MGIB-AD) start on-the-job training and apprenticeship programs at 75 percent of the full-time GI Bill rate for the first six months of training. The stipend will decrease by 20 percent after each six-month training period.
