  1. No one responded but I will share what happened. My full retro is available in my bank currently and ebenefits does not show the payment made as of yet.
  2. No BBE yet, woke up to full retro payment available in my bank.
  3. I am curious as to when the payment history updates. I was recently awarded 90 percent and should get my first monthly check on the first. I was curious as to how soon before the check is authorized for direct deposit before it will show on there? Also, will I catch my retro pay there or in my bank first you think? I am mainly wondering about the update for monthly compensation but also if my retro will show on there as well.Thank you for taking the time to respond.
  4. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond yet again. I will update when I receive either the BBE or retro.
  5. That is great to know! Thank you. Any clue why the deposits are supposed to be broken up?
  6. Here is another huge issue! Can the Treasury Offset Program take my retro pay for a debt to Aafes? Now I am in a panic.
  7. Okay, I finally got a call back from the VA number. The results are- payments being processed right now, I was told to keep an eye on my bank account. However, I was told that I will get two deposits of $10,286.04, and separate deposit of $1,743.48 made of retro payments by the 30th. Is that normal for the payments to be broken up like that? I was also told that I will be getting my monthly payments beginning on the 1st. Thank you everyone for your help!
  8. Thank you all. I was hoping that I would be able to contact the VA through the 1800 number to get info on my retro amount and when the deposit will take place, as a few bills are behind but I am having no luck other than being told to call back at a later time. Also, do you think I will receive my first monthly compensation on the first? Thank you all so much. You all are seriously so knowledgeable and a beneficial part of any lost vet's life.
  9. Thank you for taking the time to respond!
  10. Thank you all! What is the average time it takes to receive the BBE? Where is it sent from? My regional office or headquarters? What about the retro, what does it show on my bank as a deposit? The Treasury or the VA? I am so lost and with today being a holiday, I can't find out any information.
  11. Wow, so this should be sooner rather than later. I can only hope so. Thank you for your time!
  12. Okay thank you. How long will it take to receive the forms in the decision packet usually?
  13. Thank you very much. I will be waiting to add my dependednts then. So what is the timeframe now you think? 2 weeks? 4? 6?
  14. I got out of the Army in November 2013 and filed for disability in December 2013. Today my claim shows it's completed. I did only 2 C&P exams but provided substantial evidence. Here is what I woke up to this morning: Disabilities Disability Decision Related To Effective Date Status Actions right knee chondromalacia of patella with mensical tear 20% Service-Connected 11/10/2013 Request Increase Add Secondary lumbar sprain 20% Service-Connected 11/10/2013 Request Increase Add Secondary bilateral hearing loss Not Service-Connected Reopen left hand injury Not Service-Connected Reopen post traumatic stress disorder (also claimed as paranoia, anxiety, depression, irritability, anger issues, and sleep disorder/loss) 70% Service-Connected 11/10/2013 Request Increase Add Secondary right shoulder strain 10% Service-Connected 11/10/2013 Request Increase Add Secondary right hand sprain 0% Service-Connected 11/10/2013 Request Increase Add Secondary tinnitus 10% Service-Connected 11/10/2013 Request Increase Add Secondary I got a combined total rating of 90% and am so relieved. I cannot believe this is over and actually went in my favor. My question now is, if the claim was completed today- how long will it take me to get the BBE? What about the retro pay? I did not retire. I dd my eight years and got out honorable, if that matters. Also, my award is for 90% single vet, when I am in fact married since 07 with a son born in 09. How will that work with adding them? I see I can do it online but I want to wait until the retro is there so I don't mess anything up. How long will it take for them to add them? Will I receive the retro for that as well? I have not posted on here except one time, but I have read so many forums in this community and cannot feel any more privileged to interact with such a group. I will be making a donation when the retro hits. Please advise me on these topics and I thank you all so very much for your wisdom.
