Chapter 1606 – Selected Reserve

Benefit entitlement ends 14 years from the date of eligibility for the program, or on the day personnel leaves the Selected Reserve. If the reservist is mobilized, their eligibility may be extended for the amount of time mobilized plus four months. Recipients can receive up to 36 months of Chapter 1606 Benefits. Recipients who combine this benefit with one or more other Chapter Benefits can receive up to 48 months of total benefits. A recipient’s benefit amount is affected by their rate of pursuit (number of credit hours being taken divided by the number of credit hours considered to be full-time). Click here (Enrollment Status Requirements (link)) to view the VA Enrollment Requirements.

All payments are made directly to the student, not to the school. Benefits are paid in arrears (after the training period). For example, a student receives payment for August at the beginning of September. Payments are prorated for any partial months of attendance (ex. August and December). Payment amounts do not include enrollment break periods (ex. Winter and Summer break).
