If you paid the $1200 buy-in for the Montgomery GI Bill and elect to use the Post 9/11 GI Bill, you may be refunded a portion of the buy-in if, and after, all entitlement under Post 9/11 GI Bill is used. Please call 1-888-GIBILL-1 for assistance.
Payments for a spouse or child are distributed like all Post 9/11 GI Bill benefits. The tuition payment will go directly to UIW and the housing allowance (BAH) and book stipend will go the spouse or child. By transferring your benefits, you are essentially giving them up to another person, so you would not be entitled to receive the BAH and/or book stipend.
