Is It True If I Skip a Payment, I Can Get Paid the Next Semester?

Author Ron Kness is no longer in the service.

Q: I heard if I don’t verify my last month’s attendance and skip the payment, I can wait until the next semester and receive another semesters worth of benefits. Is this true?

A: Not true. When using the Montgomery GI Bill, you must verify your attendance each and every month through the WAVE website. If not, you monthly GI Bill benefits stop until you do. This is a step many GI Bill users forget and then wonder why they didn’t get paid for the previous month. If you have not verified your enrollment, do so right now, so you can get your payments started again.
