To ensure that you are getting the most out of your benefits:
- Be sure you know the requirements for your kicker. Some requirements are listed in the link below but you also need to speak with your education officer to ensure you’re doing everything correctly on your end. You can also check your AKO (Army) or AF Portal (Air Force) to check status of kicker.
- Check with your education officer at your unit to make sure you’re on the right track. Being informed on what all benefits are available to you can mean the difference between struggling with finances and financial freedom.
