You should receive your first payment on the first day of the month following your first month of attendance. This may be delayed if your VA file was not completed in time. Generally, it takes 4-6 weeks from the date your VA file is complete to receive your first payment.
You may verify your enrollment on line via W.A.V.E at www.gibill.va.gov or call 877-823-2378.
Please complete a withdrawal/drop form in admissions and bring a copy to the VA Coordinator. Any changes in enrollment must be reported to the VA within 30 days to prevent overpayment.
You are entitled to chapter 30 benefits through the date you dropped out of school.
If you were called up under title 10 (federal authority), VA will restore the entitlement you were charged for the period that you received benefits. For example, if you were in school one month and had to drop out, you keep the money for that period and VA will add back a month to your entitlement for you to use at a later time. If you were called up under title 32 (State authority), you don't receive the entitlement restoration benefit.
For Chapter 30 & 33: Your period of eligibility (commonly called your delimiting period) is extended from your last date of discharge or release from active duty provided you serve at least 90 days on active duty. There is an exception to the 90-day requirement if you are discharged or released for a service connected disability, for a non-service connected medical condition which preexisted the later active duty service, for hardship, or because of a reduction in force for the convenience of the government. You would not receive this extension of your eligibility if you were called up under title 32 (State authority) for operational purposes within your State.
For Chapter 35: If you are activated during your period of eligibility under title 10, VA will extend your period of eligibility by the period of your active duty plus 4 months. You will receive a separate extension for each call-up. This type of extension is in addition to the extension you would receive for your first period of military service which occurs between your 18th and 26th birthdays. Under the latter extension, your eligibility period would extend 8 years from your release from active duty from this period of service but not beyond your 31st birthday.
For Chapter 1606 & 1607: If you are activated for even one day under title 10, VA will extend your period of eligibility by the period of your active duty plus 4 months. You will receive a separate extension for each call-up. This extension is not available if you were called up under title 32.
For Chapter 30 & 33: Yes if you established chapter eligibility before the call-up.
For Chapter 35: No. You may not receive chapter 35 benefits while you are on active duty.
For Chapter 1606 & 1607: In general yes. This is a decision by your military component.
