    • I know what you mean. It took me about three years to go from 40% to 90% and then another year to hit 100% (backdated to original EED from five years earlier). The 90% hurdle is just probably the toughest for most veterans. It is pretty bad when the VA fails to read records properly (even typed ones) and causes all sorts of unnecessary anxiety and stress in the process. Despite still having heart issues, I have not won SC yet. The docs pulled me off of one heart medication that was actually making the problem worse and it put me into the 0% category. However, I do have two other claims that I know can be increased if I filed now. One would go from 30% to 40% and the other from 30% to 50%. I talk with my wife periodically about filing for all three, but she doesn't want me to rock the boat. She told me to wait until I retire.
    • Hey Buck52 Do you have the contact information for the manger at the RPC?  
    • great information. thanks!
    • Vync: I'm trying to get to the 100% mark but I'm learning to be more patient that it will eventually come. I know you fought your heart issues for some time and they really lowballed me on that...the hand written notes have hurt not helped me much...my PCP is nice but he would never translate the records for me....

    • Here's a little history on ILP's beginnings so you can better understand how this works-or how it's supposed to work. https://asknod.org/2016/07/27/cavc-ilp-16-2098-this-ilps-for-you/ I hope this helps some of you to get there. Win or Die. Never give up. That's how I prevailed. Five years is nothing in VA time. Remember that.

Va Pension Checks Held Up?

8 posts in this topic

It appears we are headed to shut down government in March. Will VA Pension checks be held up? Were VA Pension checks held up when they shut down the government in 1994?

As it stands now all government checks could be in danger in about 2 weeks. We should have no problems with our check in 9 days but the month after maybe yes.

I edited your post so that I could approve it. Politics are not allowed here no matter what your view.

Tom, in 95 both the wife and i were employed by the VA. We were both in critical jobs so we did not get the 3 week vacation.

As I remember the SSA and VA checks were not effected by the shutdown so I doubt they will be effected if they do it again.

tompoe - I doubt any checks will be held up. No need to panic!! I notice this is your first post. I hope you didn't join just to create fear, among the troops, here?? The thing I hate is when they go back to work they get paid, just as if they worked during the "shut down." Grrrrr! jmo

From what I could find out - - "Normal" SSA & VA pension, SSDI, VA compensation, etc checks "should be on time". Other checks may get delayed.

BUT, the short interim funding (just passed?) supposedly results in no delays, so the issue may be moot.
