Why hasn't the VA paid us our BAH this month?

(If you know the VA you know they are difficult to get a hold of and when you finally get to speak to a person, they say they are working on it but nothing ever happens). My husband is going to school and has been for a year now. We've been getting bah regularly but this month we did not get it. Why would they just stop paying us without telling us? Something with the new year? There has been no issues with his registration for school or anything like that. The VA paid us his stipend for books on 12/31, and that's the time that we should have also been paid bah.

Any idea why they wouldn't pay us? They obviously aren't giving us any answers and it's scaring me because I'm pregnant, and the only one working in the house while my husband goes to school. We have to have this money to pay the bills and I'm really upset about it, I don't know what to do.

Was he on a break during December? I received my payment on the 31st of Dec. but it was a partial payment because I was only attending school until the 15 of Dec. They used to pay break pay but I'm guessing maybe they stopped. I have been using the new GI bill since it's inception and I know for a fact that they pay by dates of attendance. If he was not in attendance during December then he would not get a payment. You said that he received his book stipend so he must have been in attendance; he needs to call them. Sometimes it is hard to get a hold of them but you must be persistent. I once called over and over for 2 hours and finally got through. They also receive attendance dates from the school so it is helpful for him to stay on his school's *** about certifying his enrollment. My school has screwed me a couple of times by verifying my enrollment late. Hope this helps.

It's possible there's something hung up in admin. Have the active duty member whom is administratively responsible (husband?) chase it from their end.

He needs to call in and verify his enrollment with the VA. He can do this via the phone or the computer. After he verifies his enrollment it usually takes 5-6 business days for the money to be electronically transferred to your account. If he's done this already this then he needs to go to the university and talk to the person responsible for the GI Bill. Sometime last semester he should have filled out a card with them annotating his enrollment for the following semester. If he has not done this then as far as the VA is concerned, he's no longer in school. It's a quick fix and once he takes care of that your BAH will resume.
