Chapter 1607 – Reserve Educational Assistance Program

Recipients can receive up to 36 months of Chapter 1607 Benefits. Recipients who combine this benefit with one or more other Chapter Benefits can receive up to 48 months of total benefits. 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 & December). Payment amounts do not include enrollment break periods (ex. Winter and Summer break). Click here (Enrollment Status Requirements (link)) to view the VA Enrollment Requirements.

There is not a delimiting date until the veteran leaves the Selected Reserves. When a reservist completes their military obligation and exits the services from the Ready Reserve then they may establish a 10 year delimiting date (exceptions apply). A member ordered to active service while serving in the reserve component remains entitled to benefits under REAP only by continuing to serve in the reserve component. Amount of the monthly rate is dependent upon how long the member was active (http://www.gibill.va.gov/resources/benefits_resources/rates/CH1607/ch1607rates100112.htm). It can be 40%, 60%, or 80% of Chapter 30 monthly rate. For more information on Chapter 1607, click here (http://www.gibill.va.gov/benefits/other_programs/reap.html).
