WASHINGTON — Schools approved for the GI Bill received $247.6 million more than they should have during the 2013-2014 academic year, according to a report released Friday from the Department of Veterans Affairs inspector general’s office.
The post-9/11 GI Bill paid out $5.2 billion for 796,000 veterans to go to school from 2013 to 2014, the report states. However, about 5 percent of the payments were made in error, costing $247.6 million in overpayments. An additional $205.5 million was not recouped when students withdrew from school or dropped a class or repeated courses, making the veterans ineligible for the benefit that was already paid.
