Abstract As part of President Obama's commitment to help veterans successfully transition, the Marine Corps' Marine and Family Programs Division (MF) asked CNA to create a demographic profile of Marines who have a high likelihood of collecting Unemployment Compensation for Ex-Servicemembers (UCX). In addition, and separate from the UCX analysis, MF asked CNA to create a demographic profile of Marines who have a high probability of using Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB) benefits. In this annotated briefing, we present the characteristics of recent Marine Corps separators, UCX recipients, and MGIB recipients. Then, we predict a Marine's propensity to collect UCX in CY11-CY12 Q2. given UCX eligibility, for those who separated from the Marine Corps between CY03 and CY07. MGIB-eligible veterans have up to 10 years after separation to use their MGIB benefits. We find that Marines who have a higher probability of collecting UCX in CY11-CY12 Q2 are nonwhite, female, married, have children, are lower quality, separated during or at the end of their first terms, has a single deployment, live in states with higher unemployment rates, are less disabled, or are in combat service support or command and control occupations. We also find that Marines who that have a higher probability of using the MGIB are nonwhite, female, unmarried, have no children, are higher quality, separated during or at the end of their first or second terms, had a single deployment, live in states with higher unemployment rates, are less disabled, or are in combat arms occupations. To conclude, we present discovered inefficiencies and areas for future research.
