  1. Okay, I got my retro pay today. I'm moving off the streets and back into an apartment today. It's been a really rough month but it's finally over. Thanks for all your support here. -Ellen
  2. *update* I pawned my laptop and cellphone this morning so I could fill up my friends gas tank and drive 100 miles to the Regional VA office this morning to have a word with them. I signed in at 11:00AM, took my seat, and waited. The highlight of my day was setting in the waiting room with 10 other people watching 5 counselors stand around for 20 minutes talking about the broken coffee machine and about how annoying it was when people complained about having to wait so long to be seen. Then, to everyone's suprise, the entire office just walked out of the room and didn't come b
  3. Small update - Got a call from Peggy this morning. Not a guarantee but she thinks my check will hit by Thursday. Not gonna get my hopes up. In other news Happy Birthday to me! Yesterday that is!
  4. So the state of Colorado gave me an emergency food stamp card. So that's one less thing to worry about. I'm just gonna wait it out and hope everything works out by the first of April. I also got a big bag of cat food for Lefty my one eyed cat (see avatar). Other than that, I have nothing to report yet. *update* Following the advice of a young woman I talked too at the VA 800 number, I have faxed a copy of my eviction notice and other such information to my regional office with a cover letter that stated: Attn: Financial Hardship, Request to expedite payment. I
  5. I've called them a few times, they don't know much about the suspension. It's odd to feel so happy about winning my claim and so depressed about the aftermath. My neighbor gave me a dozen eggs, a sack of potato's and some baked beans so I have food now.
  6. Thanks so much for the advice. I'm submitting an IRIS inquiry as I write this. Hopefully someone on the other end can help. *update* I got a call from the VA 5 minutes ago. The gentleman who I spoke to told me that they just submitted the request to lift the suspension on March 11th! 12 days after I called and changed my information. The VA benefit counselor informed me that It could still take up to a month from the day they submitted the request. I honestly don't have a month. My lights get turned off in 4 days, and I had a demand for payment taped to my apartment door
  7. Warning: Medium sized wall of text incoming. Well, along with the great relief of winning my award for 100% last month came a bit of bad news. On the 27th of feburary, my Retro-pay was sent to a non-existant account due to a single mistyped number in the VA computer system. The payment was returned to the VA the very next day. I immediately called peggy at the 800 number and changed my direct deposit information to the correct number. A week went by (8th of feb) and I called Peggy again to get an update and I was told that because the payment that was returned was so large
  8. Thank you all for all the pats on the back. It's been a good wek.
  9. It's an amazing feeling. You have done a great thing with this website.
  10. Sucessful Claim! -Timeline- June 2011 - 6th VA claim filed October 2011 - 1st Gathering of dust phase on Ebenefits, no other info available online November 2011 - 2nd Finished submitting all evidence, called Peggy to verify that no more evidence was needed at this time. 15th VA reports that my medical records can not be located and my claim proceeds using alternate evidence I had previously submitted February 2013 (yes, no updates for quite a while) - 2nd First and only C&P Exam (30 minute exam, I felt as though I was treated fairly by the exami
