Important Change for all Posts 9/11 GI Bill® Chapter 33 GI Bill Benefits
Beginning with terms starting after Dec. 17, 2021, students using their Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits at an Institution of Higher Learning (IHL) facility will be required to verify their enrollment at the end of each month. Failure to verify for two consecutive months will impact their Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) and/or kicker payments.
Here’s what you need to know:
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is encouraging students to sign up for text message verification. This will provide students with a simple and convenient verification option and ensure they receive MHA and/or kicker payments uninterrupted.
After Dec. 17, 2021, all impacted students with a US mobile phone number on file will receive an opt-in text as their next enrollment period approaches. Note: Students who do not have a US mobile phone number on file with VA will not be able to use text verification. They will be automatically enrolled in the email verification.
