    Question another question about the GI Bill

    Advertisements
    i can't seem to find it on any of the info pages.

    if your SO uses the GI Bill & receives the benefit of BAH, do they also get the benefits of AD Tricare or will we still need to purchase Tricare Select?

    ETA: he will be in the reserves, not completely out of the military.

    No, if they are out of the military, they don't get Tricare, etc.

    I posted a link about the GI Bill (both new and old) in the school section yesterday. Let me find that link again
    An unconditional right to say what one pleases about public affairs is what I consider to be the minimum guarantee of the First Amendment.

    No, they will not. Also, if it's an online school, they do not get BAH. Just FYI.

    I actually read somewhere that they just added a bill to the new GI Bill and that online schools may be included.


    OP- If they are not active duty (and I'd assume your talking about Inactive reserves after active duty) then they don't get tricare benefits. My DH is getting out this summer and we are going through the same things.

    These are some more links for info: http://www.gibill.va.gov/GI_Bill_Info/benefits.htm#CH33 and this link http://www.gibill.va.gov/pamphlets/CH33/CH33_Pamphlet.pdf is what DH was sent from his command so I'd imagine it has the most current info out there.

    Hope that helps!
