Almost everyone receiving MGIB-Active Duty (Chapter 30), MGIB-Selected Reserve (Chapter 1606), or Reserves Education Assistance Program (Chapter 1607) must verify their enrollment each month to receive payment for that month. Your enrollment can be verified starting on the last calendar day of the month by using Web Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) at https://www.gibill.va.gov/wave or by calling the free Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telephone 1-877-823-2378.
Also, to speed up receipt of your VA funds, we recommend you set up a direct deposit before your first payment. The difference in receipt time is 3-5 days. Call 1-888-442-4551 to set up direct deposit.
