CHAPTER 35: DEPENDENT EDUCATION ASSISTANCE
Payments are based on the previous month’s enrollment. Since the Department of Veterans Affairs no longer pays for break pay, if the course does not begin on the first day of the month, then VA will prorate your stipend accordingly. The same is true if the course does not end on the last day of the month.
If you have any further questions or concerns about eligibility or payments, please feel free to contact the Veterans Affairs Processing Center at 1-888-442-4551
