Citation Nr: 18131281
Decision Date: 08/31/18	Archive Date: 08/31/18

DOCKET NO. 15-07 238
DATE:	August 31, 2018
REMANDED
Whether the overpayment created due to the payment of Post 9/11 GI Bill education benefits is valid is remanded.
REASONS FOR REMAND
Whether the overpayment created due to the payment of Post 9/11 GI Bill education benefits is valid is remanded.
The Veteran contends that the current overpayment assessed against her due to her withdrawal from classes at Marymount University is not valid.  However, at this time, the Veteran’s claims file is incomplete and therefore the Board cannot proceed to adjudicate her claim.  The Veteran’s claims file contains three letters from October and November 2014 indicating the Veteran was overpaid in the amounts of $870, $10,650, and $125 for housing allowance, tuition and fees, and books respectively. However, the Veteran’s claims file does not contain any other record noting that these payments were ever originally made to the Veteran or to Marymount University on her behalf.  Without a proper accounting of what amounts were paid and to whom the Board is unable to determine if the overpayment amount is valid.  As such, the Veterans claims file must be remanded in order to obtain all outstanding documentation pertaining to her education claim. 
The matter is REMANDED for the following action:
Obtain and associate with the claims file any and all outstanding documentation pertaining to the Veteran’s education claims file.  This specifically includes records of all education benefits payments made to the Veteran or on her behalf.
