VA  message dated 11/28/2018. GI Bill UPDATE AS OF 28 NOVEMBER 2018

Short version as we understand it.

BAH will be paid based on the Tyler Campus zip code until the Spring 2020 semester.  Yes Spring 2020, barring any more complications that cause more delays.  The VA is still trying to find a way to make the necessary computer changes that are required to account for the multiple zip codes.  

Zip code BAH will only be paid for on campus classes-not clinicals/practicals/internships, as that would be almost impossible from a processing and IT standpoint. Luckily this means when they do fix this we will only have 4 zip codes to enter instead of every zip code in East Texas and Houston. And it will not slow us down as much as we feared.  

If you are being overpaid i.e. Palestine the VA "Promises" you will not receive a debt for the overpaid BAH while they work this out.

If you are being underpaid i.e. Houston the VA "Promises" you will get back pay eventually after they fix all of this and make us go back and edit each and every certification for classes not on the Tyler Campus from Fall 2018 forward.

I do expect they will eventually fix this.  But do not plan on getting extra pay until after the VA fixes everything and actually back pays you.  It could still be delayed again.

If you have any questions about this please direct them to the VA Education department.  Any answers we have will be posted on this website and we will continue to update this page as we recieve new information.

 

 The VA is experiancing on average 2 weeks long delay in payments. 6-7 Weeks after we submit in the VA system, and you should get a email directly when we do (barring VA computer problems)
