Monthly Verification of Attendance 

(For Chapters 30, 1606 & 1607 Only)

If you are receiving benefits under Chapter 30, 1606, or 1607, you will not receive your monthly payment until you have verified your attendance for the month. Your enrollment can be verified starting on the last calendar day of the month by using the Automated Verification of Enrollment (WAVE) or by calling the toll free Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telephone line at 1-877-823-2378. If this is your first time using your VA benefits, you will need to call the education line to activate your benefits. Call 1-888-442-4551 and let the phone operator know that you need to verify your attendance for the first time. This will be for the first time only. The next month, you can call 877-823-2378 or go to the VA WAVE website.
