Emergency GI Bill Benefits

As you may have heard, some people using their GI Bill benefits are having some trouble getting paid as the VA struggles to keep up with the huge number of beneficiaries who are using the new GI Bill benefits.  Fortunately, the Secretary of Veteran's Affairs has authorized emergency checks of up to $3,000 for students who have applied for benefits but haven't yet received them.  Students will need to get a VA office in order to receive the checks.

The full information can be found at the VA Website or check with your college's financial aid offices.
