A new checklist must be submitted for each semester you plan to attend VSU. The checklist indicates to our office that you would like to continue receiving VA benefits during the upcoming term. Upon receiving this checklist, we will submit a certification to the Regional office for the new school term. Please note - If you do not comply with this requirement, we will have no way of knowing that you want to continue your benefits past the current school term. Failure to turn-in a new checklist in a timely manner could delay your benefit checks by as much as three months.
What exactly is a timely manner? VA regulations allow our office to send certifications as early as 120 days prior to the beginning of the term. If you are requesting and advance payment, your certification must be received by the regional office no later than 30 days prior to the beginning of the term. However, certifications may also be sent in as late as one year after the start of the school term and be paid retroactively.
Either, submit a checklist online or mail / fax us the document.
