  • Qualifying for the GI Bill "Kicker" through the SMP route

    Hello everyone,

    I'm in the process of enlisting as an 11B with an opportunity of attending airborne school after OSUT. After I return, I will be pursuing my Masters degree and hopefully contracting as a 09R through the ROTC Battallion at my University. I was curious to know what steps I could take to be qualified for the GI Bill "kicker", not to mention, the process that the National Guard takes in order to determine which soldiers to award this allowance to.

    * Is the GI Bill kicker based only on specific MOS's? or is one generally qualified for it after attending OSUT?



    Please feel free to share your opinion. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    From what I understand, the kicker is associated with certain MOSs, and is written into your contract. If it's not in the contract, you don't get it.

      You can gain the kicker once you are SMP (09R)
