Education Benefits

Verifying Your Enrollment Status

If you receive education benefits under Chapter 30 (GI Bill-Active Duty), Chapter 1606 (GI Bill-Selected Reserve), or Chapter 1607(REAP) you must verify your enrollment status to the VA each month to receive payment.

You will be able to verify your enrollment once the VA has completed processing your claim. Processing time is approximately 10-12 weeks.

Verify your enrollment through online at the GI Bill / WAVE website or call 1-877-823-2378.

  • You will need your Social Security Number and your zip code.

  • Verification must be done on the last day of the month or after.

  • Please remember that you are verifying for the month that has just ended.

  • If you have Direct Deposit set up, your payment is generally in your account within 3-5 business days.

  • If you are receiving your payment by mail, it will take about 5-7 business days.
