Student Veterans Benefits COVID-19 Updates

GI Bill and Housing (MHA) Benefits

Student Veterans will continue to receive their GI Bill benefits under S. 3503, signed into law March 21. The law enables Veterans Affairs (VA) to continue providing the same level of education benefits to students having to take courses online due to the COVID-19. The law gives VA temporary authority to continue GI Bill payments uninterrupted in the event of national emergencies. This allows for continued payment of benefits even if the program has changed from resident training to online training. GI Bill students will continue receiving the same monthly housing allowance (MHA) payments they received for resident training until December 21, or until the school resumes in-person classes. Students receiving GI Bill benefits are not required to take any action. Benefits will continue automatically.
