  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

    • just as information when a bank rejects a Treasury Check it returns to Treasury. There an agent eventually gets it to figure out which agency authorized it, notifies some rando at that agency who then has to ask umpteen people who the check is for and will someone write them a letter. Call the Senator. His office can short circuit some of the BS by telling the head of your RO to handle it. They can then speed up verifying you have the right account info in and then send a new check request. Once that is sent The Senator can call the VA processing office to make them jump your check to the head of the list. There is nothing he can do at Treasury because treasury authorizes nothing in this process. They just get in check authorizations in batches and then when the batch is at the head of the line hit the button to send them to the ACH system. There is no one-off point where he can apply pressure.

    • I realized that after I initiated the claim with the VSO. I will most likely fill everything out myself from this point forward.    Please tag me!!! Even if she doesn’t need my help I would love to give her some moral support. I really didn’t think my situation would get resolved but thanks to you all it did!    It rejected yesterday and was returned to the VA today so I’m hoping it won’t take too long. At least I can cover rent with his October payment. I’m going to contact the senator’s office tomorrow if they can’t provide a date it will be reissued. The senators aid told me she was closing the case but to contact her if there were any other issues.    I will! I’m still figuring out these forums but If you see anything I can help with on other posts, please tag me. It notifies my email on my phone so I’ll definitely see it. 
    • glad to hear you are still with us, sad you still have these tinier hurdles to jump. you do know you could have submitted all that stuff yourself? next time you think the VSO has to do something for you, come here and ask how to do it yourself. There really is very little that they can do that you cannot do yourself. just taking a break from work and catching up on a few posts here, and have not seen you post. we just got another mother of 2 on here with basically your same problem with the VA. gave her the same basic advice. If she responds I am tagging you into the conversation. Let her hear it from the pro on how to burn this mother down when the VA acts like a Richard. As long as the VA had not processed the check to Treasury, they should be able to get it to the right account. If they have processed to Treasury there are more steps they have to take, and that means delay, at least on the Retro Pay. The monthly should still hit on time on the evening of the 30th. maybe early hours of the the 1st depending on your bank. I would let your Senator buddy know about this snafu and ask him to oversee the VA in getting it straightened out. They can be like a sneaky kid. If they think no one is watching they will do exactly the opposite of what they were just told to do by mom or dad. keep us informed
    • I’m sorry! The baby caught a little cold virus so he wants to be held 24/7. The VSO submitted the wrong information for direct deposit so I’ve been dealing with the VA to get it resent to the correct account (hopefully we get it sorted before my rent is due). I swear, the only thing that guy had to do was submit the application, the dependent info, and the direct deposit Info and he managed to mess 2 out of 3. I guess I’m lucky he managed to get the application submitted even if it was three weeks after I turned it in. I’ve also been getting my husband’s travel arrangements in order for his treatment in Chicago. The VA is requesting his former employer fill out a form so I’m driving it down there tomorrow to have her fill it out so I can submit it. How are you this evening?
