|“You have 10 – 15 years to use your GI Bill benefits. Once you have separated from the service you have 10 year to use all of your benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill and 15 years to use your Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits. The GI Bill is not considered Financial Aid in the traditional sense. College and University financial aid departments do not consider the GI Bill financial aid because it is normally paid direct to you, not the school. – Military.com|
