If you have multiple children, and one set of GI Bill benefits, you've probably wondered about the best way use the GI Bill entitlements. There are many factors to consider: how many children you have in total, if one child is more or less likely to receive other financial assistance, the costs of the different schools, and whether there will be any change in your family's financial status during the college years, such as leaving the military. However, all other variables removed, there is one thing that remains consistent: your family will likely be more eligible for need-based aid during years that you have multiple children in college. Including that information in your overall college financing strategy can be very important — for more details, see this Paycheck Chronicles post.
