Payments & Summary of Benefits
Students should receive payment from VA within 12-14 weeks of certification. In the event of an overpayment, students should contact the VA office to resolve their account.
Students are encouraged to learn more about their benefits on the GI Bill® website: https://benefits.va.gov/gibill/. This site includes details regarding monthly benefits, housing allowance and book stipends; along with stipulations which may affect each payment. For example, Chapter 33 students who are exclusively enrolled in distance ed classes will only receive 50% of their housing allowance effective October 1, 2011.
