VA unwilling to estimate when GI Bill benefit payment issues will be fixed

Officials from the Department of Veterans Affairs testified Thursday before a House committee that they still don’t know when their information technology system will be updated to address issues preventing tens of thousand of veterans from receiving their GI Bill benefit payments on time, if at all.

NBC News previously reported that technical glitches and other computer problems at VA have caused GI Bill benefit payments covering education and housing to be delayed for months or never be delivered, forcing some veterans to face debt or even the potential of homelessness.
