WAITING FOR YOUR VA EDUCATION BENEFITS?

The Department of Veterans Affairs has made funds available for veteran students who are still waiting for their education benefit claim to be processed. Eligible veterans can receive up to a $3,000 advance which will be recouped from future benefit payments.

Students at East Central University who applied for one of VA’s education programs and have not yet received their monthly benefit payment for the fall 2009 term can request a one-time advance payment at a VA Regional Office or through VA’s website, www.va.gov.
