The Veterans Affairs Department says veterans will not lose any housing benefits, pushing back on a report that the agency does not plan to reimburse those who were underpaid after a computer glitch.

"Each and every Veteran on the post-9/11 GI Bill will be made 100 percent whole -- retroactively if need be -- for their housing benefits for this academic year based on the current uncapped DoD rates," VA spokesman Curtis Cashour said in a statement to The Hill on Thursday morning.

"[A]nd, beginning in spring 2020, we [will] be in a position to provide Veterans the new rates where applicable to meet the law known as the Forever GI Bill," he added.
