MGIB Enrollment


**NEW** MGIB Enrollment Process

NAVADMIN 226/23 implements changes to the period of election to enroll/disenroll from the Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB) and serves to update policies and procedures.  Effective 5 January 2023, eligible active-duty members are no longer automatically enrolled in the Montgomery GI Bill Program (MGIB) during their first two weeks of initial entry training.   Members are now given 270 days to decide if they would like to enroll or disenroll in the MGIB Program.  This process heavily relies on command involvement in ensuring members are accurately counseled and provided the opportunity to opt out of MGIB enrollment if they desire.  Members who do NOT opt out (disenroll) will automatically be enrolled and pay reductions will start the month following their 271st day of active duty.  Please find below information and links in order to make this a seamless procedure for your command. 

Eligible active-duty members will be counseled at least once within 270 days of entry on active duty.   Members must be given a 90-day period in which to disenroll from the MGIB Program, if they wish.  The 90-day period will begin the 180th day after entering initial training.  Members who do not disenroll in writing before day 270 after entering initial active duty will be automatically enrolled in MGIB and have $100 per month reduced from their pay for the first 12 months.  New MGIB tracking report can be found in CISMS and NSIPS to assist counselors in identifying members who should be counseled.   Instructions on how to run the report may be found here:
