VA Benefit Payments

Education benefits are usually paid on a monthly basis rather than as a lump sum at the beginning of a term. The monthly rate depends on the number of credit hours or clock hours the student is taking. If a student fails to complete a course, he or she may be required to repay the benefits received for that course in some cases.
