    Has anyone who applied for Fall '09 benefits gotten paid yet? I'm still waiting myself.

    I just got paid yesterday. Classes started on the 25th of August. They say average wait time is 35 days.

    If you really need the money and can't wait you can get an Advance Payment from the VA. They will mail you a check in 3 days.

    I got a confirmation from the VA saying that they received my notification from my school confirming my 14 semester hours. That was on August 31. I am still waiting for a payment.

    Go to your local VA office and request a payment, they have authorized emergency checks to be paid for members still waiting for their payments

    I'm aware of the emergency funds, but I'll wait another 2 weeks and see if I get it by then.

    This


    I did it last week and the expediency of the process quite possibly made up for every bit of retarded paperwork/bullshit games in my 7 years in.
