VA's One Year Retroactive Award Rule:
VA's one year retroactive rule is available to students/trainees/apprentices that are considering using the GI Bill. The VA will only pay retroactive one year back from the date of the claim. For VA education and OJT/Apprenticeship programs, that's generally the date of the certification of enrollment/training. If the student/trainee/apprentice is pursuing several terms of education or months of training/employment before actually coming to you to get certified, that student/trainee/apprentice runs the risk of the VA not paying for any term beginning more than one year prior to your certification.
