The new GI Bill® (GI Bill is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs) has replaced the obsolete Montgomery GI Bill® system with a World War II style bill that provides tuition payments directly to the school, a monthly living allowance, and a stipend of $1,000 per year. To qualify for the benefits, a veteran must have served at least 90 days of active duty service post-9/11, or have served 30 days and been discharged due to a service related injury or illness.
