Educational Benefits

Verify Monthly Enrollment

  • Post-9/11 GI Bill® - Chapter 33

Beginning with terms starting on or after December 17, 2021, if you are using your Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefit at an Institution of Higher Learning (IHL) facility, you are required to verify your enrollment at the end of each month to receive your Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) and/or kicker payments. We want to help you meet this new requirement so you can continue your education without any interruption in benefits. By verifying that you are still enrolled in the same courses or training every month, you help avoid overpayments caused by changes to your training schedule and safeguard your GI Bill entitlement by preventing entitlement charges for training you did not attend.

Verify your attendance every month W.A.V.E.
