Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP), Chapter 1607

REAP was established as a part of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005. It is a new Department of Defense education benefit program designed to provide educational assistance to members of the Reserve components called or ordered to active duty in response to a war or national emergency (contingency operation) as declared by the President or Congress. This new program makes certain reservists who were activated for at least 90 days after September 11, 2001 either eligible for education benefits or eligible for increased benefits.

While receiving benefits, you will be required to verify your attendance each month via WAVE (Web Automated Verification of Enrollment).You may also utilize the automated verification system by calling 1-877-823-2378. You may use these systems on the last calendar day of the month to be verified. Payment will normally be made in 3 to 5 days if you use direct deposit, and 7 - 10 days if you have the checks mailed to you.

More information regarding educational benefits may be obtained by visiting the Department of Veterans Affairs at To check on your status and/or receive information on your monthly rate, call 1-888-442-4551.
