For example:
  A member who used 10 months of VEAP or VEGIB will have 36 months of MGIB (10 + 36 does not exceed 48). A member who used 20 months of VEAP or VEGIB will have 28 months of MGIB (20 + 28 = 48). Entitlement to MGIB Program benefits is not effective until separation from active duty. The DVA will not pay "in-service" benefits. For members enrolled in VEAP, their benefit eligibility stops the day of separation or when VEAP monies are processed for refund.
