How Long Does the Processing Take for the Montgomery GI Bill?

Q: This is my first time that I will use my MGIB, what is the processing time of VA 22-1990? And also, do I have to use VA 22-1995?

A: During the fall semester, it has been taking around 8 to 10 weeks to process a GI Bill application. I would think it should start taking less time as the semester progresses and the VA gets caught up processing applications and claims.

Once your payment gets established, then you can expect to see your Montgomery GI Bill payment about the same time each month. Of course, you know that you will always be a month behind in getting paid as you have to monthly certify your attendance in WAVE at end of each month. This is an important step as your payment will stop until you certify your attendance.

You do not need to submit VA Form 22-1995 unless you plan on changing your educational goal or degree plan, or transfer to a different school.
