I enlisted in the army national guard in 2008, went to school

Customer Question

I enlisted in the army national guard in 2008, went to school in Fall 2009 - Summer II 2010. I enrolled in GI BIll reserve select, select reserve. It was approved and they going to send me money, and it never got to me. So years later I tried to get the money back as reimbursement for paying out of pocket. They agreed to pay me back or I supplied them with a school receipt showing I went to school from the times j claimed. I ended up filling out a DA FORM 22 1999, and got it submitted. Fast forward to about 2 - 3 weeks later, now they're saying they're not going to pay me, and that it's against the law to pay a claim that is more than a year old. I had been fighting to fix this for a few months now, if this was against the law, why wasn't I informed before running back and forth trying to fill out paper work?
I have a letter in the mail saying they were going to pay me one half for 2009, and then once they got the receipt for 2010, they would pay me the rest.
What should I do?

Hi, My name is Philip. I am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
Sorry, I do not understand. I understand you applied for the GI bill. And that you applied to be reimbursed. Did they deny the request to be reimbursed in writing? If so when?
