$600 Buy-Up Program

If you participate in the $600 Montgomery GI Bill Buy-Up program, your GI Bill monthly payments will increase.

How it works

Some Servicemembers may contribute up to an additional $600 to the GI Bill to receive increased monthly benefits. With a $600 contribution, you can receive up to $5,400 more in GI Bill benefits. The additional contribution must be made while on active duty. View the increased monthly rates and contact your personnel or payroll office.

This table shows the amount of increase you can expect.

Note: This program is intended for use with the Montgomery GI Bill or REAP and cannot be used with any other program.
