  1. Just checking to see if anyone received their payment this year? It seems like an on going battle with them now since the policy has changed. I Secured Messaged prosthetics and no email back. Hmmm, odd.
  2. Did you receive yours? Still waiting to see if I am eligible... I secured messaged the prosthetics office and they never got back to me..
  3. I have to say I was lucky. Before I moved from West Virginia, my primary care there wrote a very good letter stating she believe the high blood pressure is related to the chronic pain. Just a waiting game till my Washington hearing.
  4. This stuff really needs to change. Like I said before. Hey, we have something new for you! More money for items we give you that destroys your clothing but hey there is a flaming hoop you need to go through! I wonder how many civilians would go through this stuff! It is funny, I guess that is what military training prepared us for!
  5. This is irritating! I am sorry you are still going through this. The odd part is, they say sure you can have two clothing allowances... Then they make it harder for you to get it with equipment they issue. Unnerving! It was so much better when the end of August rolled around and *poof* there is was in your account. The former prez said he was helping us but gave us more hurdles to jump through.
  6. Hello All! I know it is time to get out letters to remind us about submitting for the annual clothing allowance. I was reading the topics last year and submitted a few. I figured I would submit this one since I am not sure if anyone was still looking at those. Just reaching out to find out of the outcomes. Mine was border line on approval since I fall in the hinges being covered by cloth and the Velcro straps. Have you all successfully received yours or is it still on appeal? See, I wear BDU pants. I can adjust them well when using my back brace. It is funny how they s
  7. Hello All! I was notified that some day I will be receiving a letter to go to Washington for a hearing for my appeal. I filed for hypertension secondary to chronic pain. Here is a synopsis... Leading up to my first surgery in 1994 done by the Army. I was told to come into the aide station to have my blood pressure recorded. Being a dumb 21 year old Airborne Infantryman I didn't think nothing of it. I went, my pressure was high and it was logged in my medical records. I had my spinal fusion to correct a parachuting accident. Mar 1994, I was discharged because the fusion didn't wo
  8. That is the funny part, I am dealing with the Chief of prosthetics. I emailed him Friday asking if he had any luck putting in the info. He replied back... "the VBA say's they will be issuing the payments between 1 Oct and 31 Dec. He works for the VHA so he has no control over the payments". Now, that did not answer my question in any way, shape or form. I know he works for the VHA?! I have been dealing with the VA since 1994, I know who works for which. I thought Pittsburgh, PA system was bad. It seems like these guys here in WV are taking notes from them. It just seems like it has gotten wors
  9. This is what I am talking about Jef. These goobers (to put it nice) say it is nationwide. And ya'll got paid already. I think the dead line to put in the info was 1 Aug. They skipped it and are having problems. I had and easier time getting it before you had to file for it yearly. I always got paid between the 18th and the 28th of August. Oh well. The people at prosthetics have screwed up on stuff for me already. It is just another go around. Thanks again!
  10. Hello folks, I just wanted to see if anyone else is having the same issues I am. I turned in my paperwork for the clothing allowance in June of this year. I was early since I thought I would have been moved by now. Generally, the VAMC I got to is very quick about it. In the years past, I would receive the pay in the last week of August. I know, count yourself luck. I started poking my nose into the issue. I was being told by prosthetics, "it is a nationwide problem. They are having trouble putting it in the system". So, I contacted the VA hotline. They have no idea what the VAMC is t
  11. wjack12412 You should be able to get the allowance for this since you are 100%. I just want to know if no one has received their clothing allowance yet? The VA here in Clarksburg has been telling us they can't put the paper work in. They say it is a nationwide problem. I want to see if anyone else is hearing the same. Thanks folks!
