If you’re a veteran who’s already taking advantage of Montgomery G.I. Bill benefits, there’s a program in place that can increase the monthly payments you receive. All you have to do is make a contribution. The more it is, the more your payments will be increased each month.

For example, if you make a $600 contribution, then you could receive up to $5,400 more.

Note: this cannot be used with the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill. But, if you’ve signed up for it have benefits, you can check on their status by clicking here.
