tsteck2010 posted a question in Entitlement - Veterans Compensation Benefits ClaimsAlright, so I started college last fall and my dad just qualified for 100% disability over the summer, which they back-dated to February. According to the VA lady here at my school I should receive back pay for the housing allowance for the months that I was in school. I was just wondering if these payments would be direct deposited in the middle of a month or if they would only come on the first of the month, like the actual payments? I am asking because it is the first today and neither my brother nor myself received any payment. I am really curious if I am going to have to wait an entire month to receive that payment or if it could show up on some random day this month. Thanks!
