Dear Student,
Many of our Post-9/11 GI Bill students are experiencing longer than typical wait times to receive monthly housing payments. Today, we are averaging a little over 35 days to work first-time applications and 23 days for re-enrollments.
Although processing times in the fall are longer than other seasons, wait times this year are longer than usual. Knowing this may have caused you a financial hardship, please let us know by contacting us via the GI Bill website at
As Our Education Call Center is also experiencing higher than normal wait times, you can avoid waiting on the phone for a payment status by calling 1-888-442-4551 and choosing Option 2 for an automated response. You can also check your eBenefits or account for payment status. Once your payment is processed by VA, it will take a few more days to reach your banking institution.
We regret that these delays are occurring and the impact they may have on you and your family. We’re working to make sure you are paid as soon as possible and will continue to update you with any new information we have. You may also want to follow us on our Facebook page for updates at
Robert M. Worley II
Director, Education Service

Veteran Post 9/11 GI Bill® beneficiaries can now download a Post 9/11 GI Bill® Statement of Benefits through The Post 9/11 GI Bill® Statement of Benefits provides details on remaining entitlement, eligibility percentage, and benefit end date. We encourage schools to accept this document in lieu of a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) to verify entitlement and eligibility for Post 9/11 GI Bill® benefits. The information is real-time data pulled from the same system used by the education benefit processors. Dependents are not able to use at this time. Dependents can view and print the Education Enrollment Status page from eBenefits, which contains the same information.
