It Pays to be in the National Guard.

Life has enough obstacles. The National Guard thinks money shouldn't be one of them.

Whether you are seeking additional income, funding for college, job training or another type of financial assistance, your commitment to the Guard will reap big dividends.

The Guard's got your back on the fiscal front.

The Money Starts Coming Right Away.

Upon signing with us, you may be eligible for an enlistment bonus. The Guard has many in demand occupations that are rewarding - both financially and at a personal level.

If you're a recent high school grad or an adult looking to change careers, we'll give you on-the-job paid training in the vocation of your choice. You'll not only earn while you learn, but you'll skip the minimum wage jobs and jump straight to the good ones in civilian life.

If you're a current or future college student, you'll appreciate programs like 100% Tuition Assistance and student loan repayment. You may also qualify for the Montgomery G.I. Bill and its supplement, the Kicker, which provide monthly stipends.

Security on the Horizon

As we grow older, certain things become important - home loans, life insurance, and medical and retirement benefits. As a Guard member or veteran, you'll be eligible for these and many other essential resources when you need them.
