Delivery of March 2023 Monthly Housing Allowance May Be Delayed for Some Beneficiaries

March 31, 2023

The Post-9/11 GI Bill® Monthly Housing Allowance (MHA) payment for the end of March 2023 may be delayed by approximately one business day, due to an unexpected systems issue. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) recognizes the importance of the MHA and is working diligently to ensure MHA disbursements posts as soon as possible.

For impacted GI Bill beneficiaries with direct deposit, there is a possibility that the MHA payment could post at financial institutions by late Friday, March 31, 2023, or Saturday April 1, 2023. Hard copy checks will be distributed expeditiously.

We are aware and working on this matter as a top priority. VA apologizes for any inconvenience this payment delay may cause on personal finances.
