    post 911 gi bill BAH

    Advertisements
    so i got my letter of eligibility, my school sent the VA my enrollment verification, then i got a letter saying everything was good and that i would be getting my BAH as well as my books stipend and how much they were, but it did not specify when i could expect my check in the mail.

    im just wondering if anyone knows much about it. i know i'll get a monthly check, do i expect it after the 1st of every month? the amount of BAH i'm entitled to is enough for me to live on while im in school meaning i wont have to get a job, but i do have bills to pay that are due next month.

    I don't know when you should be expecting it, because we're still waiting on DH's to come in also. When he got it the past two semesters we got the BAH on the first, deposited into his account.

    DDs shows up toward the end of the month, anywhere from the 25th on. The deposit for last August showed up Sept. 15, along with the book stipend. It is prorated from the date classes begin, not for the entire month.

    It took a good three months to get our first payment after we received our eligibility letter...of course there was backpay...but just be prepared that it does not always
    come on time. You really can't count on it every month.

    the BAH will come about a month after everything else- it is paid in arrears. and it can take 2-3 months for it too start

    Just check your accounts. The VA pays my husband at different times. The book stipened comes in like a month before school... the first payment for the entire month of school could be late etc. Make sure you stay on top of it.

    DD went to school Aug. 21 and received her book allowance and partial housing for August at the beginning of Sept. Move in days started the 19th, so maybe they got the students certified before the magic cutoff day for the next payday.
