VA Verification of Enrollment
All Chapter 30 and Chapter 1606 beneficiaries (i.e., veterans, reservists, and guardsmen who receive GI Bill benefits) must verify their enrollment each month to ensure continued payment of benefits. Enrollment may be verified via either touch-tone phone at 1-877-823-2378 (toll free) or by using the Department of Veterans Affairs' Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) system. If a student's enrollment has changed during the month, the student must verify his/her enrollment through the WAVE program.
Please note that by using the phone or WAVE method, students can only verify the prior month's enrollment. For example, on or after September 30th, a GI Bill recipient will verify September enrollment only. Students who need assistance should call the VA toll-free at 1-888-GIBILL1 (1-888-442-4551).
