  1. VA Cola will be on the Dec 31st payment, the SSDI payment will show on the Jan payment date.

    Eligible for Medicare due to ssdi

    Keep in mind that you are the only beneficiary for Medicare, you wife can get it when she turns 65, kids are out and stuck with Champ VA.
  3. I commend your effort, but before you go for anything related to the gold standard, best to check how uncle sucker rates gold as of today. Gold holds it own as it comes to inflation, always has and always will unless you are the gooberment. The CPI was changed under Clinton to skewer and screw those that depended on it, and it ain't gonna change.
  4. My Friend uses the liquid CBD, he said it works faster.
  5. CBD is where you need to stay. I have a very good friend who was in a very bad wreck in 2000, the guy who hit him got decapitated and he had a front row seat to this along with 3 months in the hospital having his back rebuilt and neck healing. 4 months ago , he showed me a bottle of CBD he got, as he wanted off the pills he has been on since the accident. Since he started this CBD journey , he said his life has changed as in no more pain pills, not much pain, clear head along with a major decrease in panic attacks to almost nothing. He told me that after 18 years, he feels normal again, something he thought impossible just a short time ago. I have read alot about CBD, this is the one thing that is giving Big Parma the jitters, but the cat is out of the bag and there is no going back, which is good for us that are still walking on this earth.
  6. Yesterday the numbers were released. What I read , it stated we were at 1.7%, but it is what it is. The article went on to say how the CPI has been hijacked since Clinton was in town and the real number this year using the real formula (BC) the COLA would be 5.3%. If the Goverment used "Real" numbers again they could not afford Billion dolla airplanes ,everlasting wars, bailouts and such, while at the same time, being broke. We keep taking one for the team , year over year, but 2% is 2%.
  7. Mine came in on Aug 16. I am listed as static permanent, so that may have something to do with it.
  8. Great info. My number was on the list and I filed the claim online.
  9. Hey Guys and Gals, It's that time of the year, if you are eligible or have received prior, start checking your bank account as the clothing allowance is now being disbursed by the VA.

    IU granted!

    A big Congrats Broncovet.......A very long time coming, but now you await the reward.
  11. I hope you get everything that the VA owes you. You have fought the fight for a long time now.
  12. I will also add that you stated that you are living off a small SS award. Would that be SSI? If so you might think about filing for War-time service pension from the VA if you fit in the time before VN was called, I am not sure of the date. Just thought I would throw that out there in case you fit the criteria, as the Pension pays more that SSI in most cases.
  13. Something triggered the VA to start paying at the 100% rate. This just does not happen out of the blue, someone had to input that info into the system in order or the extra money to start. It is not uncommon for VA paperwork to be delayed, and Tbird gave you perfect advice. You might be surprised on what you find!
  14. I thought the SSA had developed a program several years ago to help returning Vets who are disabled for a fast track claim under SSDI....Have you sent the VA award to the SS office? Also I would suggest that if you are close to losing your home , you talk to your mortgage company. There are still programs intact that will possibly help you keep your home.
  15. Good info Broncovet. Several years ago we got the big 5% raise. At that time everyone was ecstatic, but the writing was soon on the wall that this increase was doomed long term by the Feds ZIRP policy that killed any further COLA's in the near future.....that came true as we all felt the real pinch that Uncle Sucker does not count in the basket. Thus far we are as you stated on track for a decent increase.....The kicker is this month, next month and Sept, these are the months that really count when you are dealing with Cola's. Lets keep our fingers crossed that this year does not end up like the last 4.
