    its the government bro, it moves slow.

    It used to take 2-3 months before I would get my first check
     
  5. You'll still gonna be good to go for August 1st and the huge changes, right? Like using it now isn't going to screw you? I'm just hoping you made sure of it or you might end up kinda pissed.

    They have a chart that says how long somewhere on the site ... I belive if you have direct deposit set up and you verify your enrollment on the 30th ... your Electronic Funds Transfer should be around the 2nd or 3rd ...

    Now, since the new Post 9/11 GI Bill is starting to take effect in August, the VA has a larger workload and thus it will take 4-6 weeks AFTER the VA Office at the school sends in your paperwork.

    Basically its going to take a little longer for you to start receiving your check when you start each semester. Once its all in place and the enrollment verified, it will be like clockwork.
