Post 911 GI Bill Deposit

I was just wondering if any veterans here that get the Post 911 GI bill got their housing allowance deposited today? I usually get it on the 1st, but it hasn't been deposited yet, so I thought maybe because it's a holiday, it won't be in till tomorrow. Just wanted to check with other vet moms.

OP my husband got his a few days ago and it was cut short because of stupid obama. he has a new law even if ur a full time student. Im made they cut his money down evene though he goes to school sat and sun which is considered full time. his dumb law is if u have a gap in class (not his fault) he doesnt get paid. Which then his whole School is a lie because he is supposed to get $2175 a month but hes got the other day $500 and the time before that a $1000.

The law was done last august. DH left army Nov 1 2011. And started classes on the 4th at wyotech long beach, ca (tech school) he is doing Mechainc for cars. Anyways. he was going Mon-Fri but the drive is 1 hour and 30 mins there and back not including traffic. so yes he was getting $2175 a month. then "they" fucked up by giving him more money and as usual with out telling us because there is no info on the direct deposit that says what its for. no letter no phone call until weeks later. He assumed it was Book money. Guess what? Now he owes $600. they take $60 something every Direct deposit. He changed his days to weekends as a fulle time student. Instead of going from 8-2pm he goes from 8-5pm

All of a sudden every month his BAH would get smaller and smaller. All because there is a Gap in his MOD. They call it MOD in Tech schools not semesters or anything. If he goes sat and his MOD ends on Sunday or some shit i cant remember then he doesnt get paid for that day. Because there was a whole week of a Gap. Even though yes hes not theire technically, he is supposed to be paid per the policy or whatever but since Obama says if ur a weekender and dont go on weekdays u wont get paid.

It still makes no sense! My husband didnt go to college or wanted to use his VA benefits for college so he would get short changed every fucking month. BAH for Los Angeles is $2175. A few days ago for LA BAH was $500. And he was not the only person. Everyone in his class that was a Veteran with a honorable discharge got $500 and before that it was only $1000. We have fucking bills to pay and food to buy. Hes almost done in Feb. As soon as that happens hes enrolling in Online courses so at least he gets paid around the clock. and he can have weekends off and still go to work mon-fri

Wow! Thats ridiculous! Sometimes, I don't think they realize that we depend on this money for bills. It's a housing allowance for a reason. I'm so afraid that they didn't pay me this month and that I won't be able to pay rent. I go full time and my so is out of work so this is our only income for the moment and I'll be screwed if it doesn't come in tomorrow. So far, everyone on here that gets it said they've gotten it already. I'm starting to freak out now!
