$600 Buy-Up Program

If you take part in the $600 Montgomery GI Bill Buy-Up program, you’ll get more money each month through your GI Bill monthly payments. Find out how it works.

How do I get this benefit?

  • Decide how much extra you want to contribute. With a $600 contribution, you can get up to $5,400 more in GI Bill benefits. View the rate table.
  • Fill out a form called Montgomery GI Bill Act of 1984 Basic Enrollment (DD Form 2366) and take it to your payroll or personnel office. Get DD Form 2366.
  • Keep copies of the form and any other paperwork that shows you made the payment.

Note: This program can’t be used with the Post 9/11 GI Bill.
