    quick question (school)

    Advertisements
    DF and I are trying to figure out when is best to get married. He gets out of the military in about 15 months. He asked me last night, if we got married while he's still in would I get more financial aid for school? Or would I still be able to get money if he is a vetern? Right now I live at home and my parents pay for my schooling. This semester coming up in aug. I got a little bit of financial aid but not a lot at all.
    Thanks for the help.

    I think it will depend on how long he has been in on if you would receive any help at all. The best bet would be for him to go to his education office(officer) and ask them.

    Does he qualify for the new post 911 GI Bill benefits?

    I can't remember how long you have to be in to get that. If so, he can
    transfer it to you. You will also receive E-5 BAH which here in Illinois is
    $1056 a month PLUS you get a monthly book stipend which is about $243 a month.

    It is really great.

    Is this only if we get married before he get out?
    One more question, once his contract is up do you know if thats when he stops getting BAH?

    Yes. You need to married before he gets out for him to transfer it.

    All the pay will stop when his contract is up.
