Trump Fails To Give Veterans The Benefits They Earned
November 29, 2018
Trump’s Department of Veterans Affairs continues to put veterans and their families at risk by failing to provide them with the GI Bill benefits they earned.
Trump’s VA refuses to reimburse student veterans who were paid less than they were owed in GI Bill benefits.
NBC News: “For weeks, student veterans across the country have raised an alarm about delayed or incorrect GI Bill benefit payments, which the Department of Veterans Affairs has blamed on computer issues. But on Wednesday, the department told congressional staffers that it would not reimburse those veterans who were paid less than they were owed, two committee aides told NBC News.”
Trump’s VA delayed for the second time bringing its GI Bill housing stipends in line with current law, now pushing it until the end of next year.
Navy Times: “After blowing through the initial deadline to bring its GI Bill housing stipends in line with the Forever GI Bill law, Veterans Affairs Department officials said Wednesday that they will not be able to implement the fix until December 2019.”
