Advance Pay for VA Benifits

If you have not attended school for at least 30 days prior to the start of the quarter, you may elect the option of Advance Pay.

The VA will send the check to SFCC, which is co-payable to the student and SFCC, sometime during the 30-day period before the beginning of the quarter. It cannot be released to you until you have registered for your classes.

An Advance Payment pays the student's monthly benefit for the first and second month of the quarter in advance. The amount is what would have been paid had the student elected to receive the regular payments. This means that student will NOT receive another payment until their third payment would have arrived.

The VA will send the check directly to the Veterans Benefits sometime during the 30-day period before the beginning of the quarter. Our office will contact you when it is ready for you to pick up.

  • Chapter 33 is NOT eligible for Advance Pay.
