Coronavirus COVID-19 Veterans Graphic

The Veterans Administration has worked with Congress to preserve GI Bill benefits for those impacted by COVID-19 during this difficult time. New legislation will continue GI Bill payments uninterrupted in the event of national emergencies, including education benefits and monthly housing.

What should GI Bill Students know?

California student veterans who have been receiving GI Bill benefits are still receiving those benefits and it is likely that they will continue to do so uninterrupted and without reduction until approximately the end of this calendar year. The US Department of Veterans Affairs recommends that students with inquiries about specific circumstances contact the Education Call Center at 1-888-442-4551 between 8 AM and 7 PM Eastern Time, Monday-Friday.

If you have questions about your specific circumstance, please contact the Education Call Center: 1-888-442-4551 between 8 AM and 7 PM Eastern Time, Monday-Friday.
