Chapter 35 for Foreign School

Question

My son will be attending a school in Hungary that is VA eligible next semester. Chapter 35 pays a "monthly housing allowance" in this case, by semester. Do they stop pay when classes break for a week?  He still has to stay in the dorm since he can't just fly home whenever school breaks.

I am not 100% sure   , one week of a break  so yes I would say  it just stays the same and paid on each semester.

Chapter 35, 'DEA' is paid by term. If the school (SCO, School Certifying Official) included the time as a 'term' on the 1999 then the claimant is paid. They will conduct an audit, and, months later the audit finds the SCO incorrectly included a period, they'll adjust the award, creating a debt.

I've never seen a 'Monthly Housing Allowance' for CH35. Learn something new everyday!!! CH33 pays a housing allowance .... are you sure someone didn't confuse the two?

Or is it Fry??

Or maybe the Hazelwood Exemption?

Snake Eyes , you listed your SC as 90% , but are you in fact now 100% P & T , and is that why your son is eligible for Chapter 35?

My kids' chapter 35 stops the day the term  ends and doesn't start paying them again until the new term.  If there is an additional charge for your child to stay in the dorms over the holidays and he/she isn't taking a class they will stop payment of their chapter 35 money.  The VA is quick to remedy mistakes made with chapter 35 overpayments, my daughter's college advised her to take two classes that they then (she should have realized as well) said weren't required for graduation.  That was caught and she had to replay almost $3,000. Thankfully, she had been saving her nickels and just went a semester without any chapter 35 money while it was paid back.  There are other scholarships but most won't cover foreign schools.

It isn't a housing allowance it is simply an allowance, has nothing to do with housing.  It can be used to pay for anything.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
