A veteran enrolled in an academic program should receive his/her first benefit check approximately six to eight weeks after FSU submits the enrollment certification to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Monthly payment of benefits under the Montgomery G.I. Bill can only be released after your monthly verification of attendance has been received in the St. Louis Regional Office.
This may be done by Internet: (W.A.V.E.) or by telephone: 1-877-823-2378.
