Montgomery GI Bill, Reserve Educational Assistance Program or REAP (Chapter 1607)
Administered by the Federal Government, Office of Veterans Affairs
What is it?REAP is an education program that provides up to 36 months of benefits to members of the Selected Reserves, Individual Ready Reserve (IRR), and National Guard, who are called or ordered to active service in response to a war or national emergency, as declared by the President or Congress. There is no specific time frame to use REAP; however, your eligibility generally ends when you leave the Selected Reserves.
To qualify:Eligibility is determined by the Department of Defense or Department of Homeland Security. Generally, a member of a Reserve component who serves on active duty on or after September 11, 2001 under title 10, US Code for at least 90 consecutive days under a contingency operation is eligible for REAP.
Now what?Once all the paperwork has been reviewed by our office and your status as a student in good standing has been confirmed, we will certify your classes. Payments will be sent directly to you. It is up to you to confirm your enrollment, monthly, through the VA website when appropriate.
