To ensure that you are getting the most out of your benefits, please read the following:
- Do you know what the requirements for your kicker are? Some requirements are listed in the link below but you also need to speak with your education officer to ensure you’re doing everything correctly on your end. You can also check your AKO (Army) or AF Portal (Air Force) to check status of kicker.
- If you are National Guard, you may be eligible for a program called GTIP. GTIP is a potential extra $2500 a semester for qualifying students and based on unit funding availability. Details are listed in the link below.
- As said before, you should check with your education officer at your unit to make sure you’re on the right track. Being informed on what all benefits are available to you can mean the difference between struggling with finances and financial freedom.
