Where is my Post 9/11 GI Bill BAH and book stipend?
Question by Stephen: Where is my Post 9/11 GI Bill BAH and book stipend?
So here we are further into the month. I posted a questions similar to this last week or so. I’m just checking on if there are any updates to the status of any ones tuition or BAH. My tuition debt is up to almost $ 8K. Had to drop classes because I haven’t received any money nor has the school. My financial aid is still being held hostage because of the tuition debt. Hopefully some one out there has some good news. Any one receive anything yet? I filed a congressional inquiry because the VA owes me and my husband more then $ 10K not to include tuition. That would be almost another $ 17K. They didn’t even pay out chapter 30 before they canceled it and left me empty handed. The bills are due, the mortgage is late and I’m stuck in a bind! I read the other there are more then 200,000 Vets who haven’t received their tuition benefits yet. How ridiculous is that? It probably went to cash for clunkers! Anyway if anyone has had better luck with the VA, I sure could use some tips.

i hear you brother… I am waiting just like you. But my school had me fill out a form and they differed ( didnt charge ME) the tuition and fee’s. but I still had the balance on my account. I looks like 2 weeks ago to see if it was paid, and to my astonishment, it was. Even thou my tuition and fee’s are payed, I have yet to receive BAH or the book stipend. I am starting to run out of the money I saved or had around. I am still waiting on my travel voucher and DITY move payments from the military still. I sent it over 3 weeks ago. Im not sure how long it takes but something has to come through soon. Hopefully we all get paid at the end of sept ( 1st of oct payday). If not im going to be up shit’s creek. So hopefully the VA starts doing what they promised.
