  1. Wondering if anyone has some realistic insight to how long it takes to see any actual money (BAH or Book stipend) when using the post 9/11 GI Bill. I applied on Jan 21, started school on Jan 25, and my school is absolutely hounding me for the certificate of eligibility. I called on the 888 number Tuesday and was told that I will be getting 90% and that my letter should have been sent out. Once I do get it and submit it to my school, how long am I realistically waiting for any money to show up in my account? I'm halfway done with my first class, I'm getting bills from the school that are stressing me out, and the process so far has already taken over a month, oh and I desperately need a new computer.
  2. I have 3 claims in right now; compensation (PTSD, back, hearing, knees and ankles), freedom of information act (requesting service records) and NOD for GI Bill. I've read numerous NOD posts and they all deal strictly with compensation. I was wondering if anyone knows if a NOD on the GI Bill is any different. As in, the time it'll take or any information that may help me. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi, I would like some help finding a lawyer to look over my case. I am rated at the 80% but paid 100% for unemployability. I had a brain injury while I was in the Navy. Four years later the injury has gotten much better. I would like to get back in the workforce. But I'm afraid to leave the safety net of unemployability. I'm willing to pay a good lawyer to look over my file and give me my options. Thanks for reading.
  4. I have been using my Ch. 33 benefits for the last two academic years to finish up my undergraduate education. I just graduated with my BS back in May and submitted a Change of Program or Place of Training since I will be starting graduate school in mid-August. It's July now and I never received any letters from the VA, so I checked the eBenefits portal and see that I was disallowed from enrollment. Of course, I called to see what was going on and was told that a letter was supposedly sent out in June (never got it): I was denied benefits because I didn't have enough time in service and that supposedly I was never entitled to benefits, and my initial award was a mistake (the lady told me not to worry, they're not going to make me pay it back). I was told that they "re-verified my eligibility" by contacting DoD, and DoD told them I wasn't eligible. Obviously, I strongly disagree with this. I have just over a year of service and was medically retired due to disability from disease and injury incurred LOD. I received 30% from the Army. Granted, my one year was all IET, but I am still eligible based on the fact I was medically separated with more than 30 days of service, no? I submitted additional evidence to the VA via both fax and certified RR mail, including my DD 214 Member 4, where the narrative summary for separation states disability, my PEB results, and my retirement orders. I am hoping the additional documentation will persuade them to change their decision. Any advice on anything additional I should do? Anyone else have any similar experiences? I'm really hoping that this can be resolved by the time I start my graduate program, because it would be a huge financial hit for me if I have to appeal and go through a lengthy process. Prior to this, I still had 12 months of Ch 33 benefits remaining. I wish I had known this back when they supposedly sent the letter, I would have acted immediately.
  5. I have to admit that I did not do much research on this opportunity, but it did come to me from a different Veterans Benefits web site, and I think there may be one or two or more on this site who could/would take advantage of such an opportunity. Overall summary, is that if you are unemployed, and looking for some retraining, but can not afford the cost of changing courses, then you may be interested in reading/pursuing more: http://benefits.va.gov/vow/education.htm I am also attaching the wording of the VA Notification so you can decide if you want to pursue this link and the advertised benefits on your own. I assume that I personally do not qualify for this benefit, due to my ongoing need for treatment, but that is not an official answer. Anyway, this is a time-sensitive benefit, and in my opinion, an extremely valuable opportunity for a lot of folks on this site or their significant others. I wish you all well!!!! Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) Congress passed, and the President has signed into law, the VOW to Hire Heroes Act of 2011. Included in this new law is the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP). VRAP offers up to 12 months of training assistance to unemployed Veterans. The Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) and the Department of Labor (DOL) are working together to roll out this new program on July 1, 2012. The VRAP offers 12 months of training assistance to Veterans who: Are at least 35 but no more than 60 years old Are unemployed Received an other than dishonorable discharge Are not be eligible for any other VA education benefit program (e.g.: the Post-9/11 GI Bill, Montgomery GI Bill, Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Assistance) Are not in receipt of VA compensation due to unemployability Are not enrolled in a federal or state job training program The program is limited to 45,000 participants from July 1, 2012, through September 30, 2012, and 54,000 participants from October 1, 2012, through March 31, 2014. Participants may receive up to 12 months of assistance equal to the monthly full-time payment rate under the Montgomery GI Bill–Active Duty program (currently $1,473 per month). DOL will offer employment assistance to every Veteran who participates upon completion of the program. Participants must be enrolled in a VA approved program of education offered by a community college or technical school. The program must lead to an Associate Degree, Non-College Degree, or a Certificate, and train the Veteran for a high demand occupation. High Demand Jobs VRAP will provide training for programs of education that lead to a high demand occupation, as determined by the Department of Labor. Click here to see a listing of high demand occupations. VRAP Applications Are Open We are accepting VRAP applications now. Please visit eBenefits to apply. Remember, to complete the application, you will need to know your direct deposit information (bank routing number and account number), the name and location of your school, the program you wish to pursue, and the applicable high demand occupation
