Generally, overpayments of VA benefits are the responsibility of the student. However, there are instances under the Post 9/11 GI Bill when an overpayment is created on a school and funds need to be refunded by the school to the VA.
Schools may refund money to VA in one of three ways:
1. Schools may send a check to the agent cashier of the Regional Processing Office of jurisdiction. It is essential that you include the student’s name and VA file number when you make a payment to VA. Please send payments to the attention of the “VA Agent Cashier” at the Regional Processing Office of Jurisdiction. Those addresses can be found on pages 87 - 90 of the School Certifying Official Handbook.
2. The school may return an uncashed Department of Treasury check to the following address:
U.S. Department of the Treasury
Financial Management Service
P.O. Box 51318
Philadelphia, PA 19115-6316
Returning Funds to VA
Schools should wait to refund payments to VA until a collection notice from the VA Debt Management Center (DMC) is received. In those instances where schools are responsible for making a remittance to VA for excess Tuition, Fees, or Yellow Ribbon payments, schools may make a refund to VA in one of five options.
Schools may send a check, payable to the US Department of Veterans Affairs, to the VA Debt Management Center.
The address to the VA Debt Management Center is:
VA Debt Management Center
Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building
P.O. Box 11930
St Paul, MN 55111-0930
