Post-9/11G.I. Bill Update: VA offers $3,000 in emergency living stipends

Tonight, VA Secretary Eric Shinseki announced that VA will offer veterans experiencing payment delays under the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill $3,000 in advance payment to account for missing living stipends. Eligible veterans must bring a photo ID and proof of enrollment to any of the VA's 57 regional offices starting Friday, Oct. 2 to request payments.

Upon hearing the news, AMVETS leaders applauded the swift action of the VA. AMVETS made a similar proposal in late August when reports of potential delays started to surface.
