For many eligible participants, the Post-9/11 GI Bill® is a better solution than other education benefit programs, such as the Montgomery GI Bill® - Active Duty, Montgomery GI Bill® - Selected Reserve and the Reserve Education Assistance Program (REAP). However, this decision depends on several factors, including the type of education or training you plan to take and the amount of benefits received under each program.
