What if I am receiving Education benefits, am called to active service and have to drop out of school without receiving credit?

You are entitled to receive MGIB-AD (Chapter 30), MGIB-SR (Chapter 1606), VEAP (Chapter 32), or DEA(Chapter 35) benefits through the date you dropped out of school.

If you were called up under Title 10 (Federal authority), we will restore the entitlement you were charged for the period that you received benefits. For this to occur, you must send us a copy of your orders or DD-214 verifying service under Title 10.

For Example: If you were in school one month and had to drop out, you keep the money for that period and we will add back a month to your entitlement for you to use at a later time. If you were called up under title 32 (state authority), you don’t receive the entitlement restoration benefit.

If you have been overpaid education benefits, we will postpone collection action if you are deployed to a combat area. However, once you return from a combat area, you may be responsible for repaying any overpayment of benefits.
