  1. My daughter is starting college in Aug. I’ve submitted all of the documents. What I want to know is once she starts receiving the payments in her bank account . Will they remove her as a dependent from my benefit payments? I can’t Receive payments for her as a school age dependent, that would be double dipping want it?
  2. Brokensoldier 244th I was inquiring as to the rate of pay on the pay chart. Should I get $281 for over 18 since she is 18 instead of $87 for under 18. I want use DEA if it's going to interfere with any of her college months!!!!
  3. Is there an increase in dependent compensation if your child is 18 but is still in highschool until next year cor is the increase just for her after she starts college?
  4. My daughter just turned 18 and want graduate from high school until May of 2022 I filed the paperwork for an increase. What I want to know is once she starts college, I'll have to change her status again correct? I heard that she will receive some type of payment from the VA. If this is true is there anyway I can control what ever she receive or will it go straight to her. I would like to be able to monitor her for at least a year. I am 100% P&T
  5. Awarded TDIU in June and I'm still trying to get a handle on all benefits that are due me. Would my wife receive any compensation for attending college as my kids would. And also l heard some where about free life insurance. Is there a single place I can go to see all that I qualify for?
  6. I would recommend Hill and Pontoon to anyone. They helped me go from 70% to 100% TDIU in less than a year. They were very professional and kept me informed every step of the way. I could call anytime and was always able to get an answer to any concerns. You didn't have to chase them down or talk to a machine. Your situation is different than mine, but I can say that if they can help there's no one else I would recommend!!!!
  7. I didn't have to use an IMO. My attorney used a Vocational expert report with my medical records. It took less than three months from the time my supplemental claim was submitted until I was awarded TDIU. My medical evidence was the same as my initial claim the only new and relevant evidence was the Vocational expert report. I didn't have the money to pay for the report, but my attorney covered the cost until I received backpay. It was the best move I ever made!!! I didn't care about backpay as much as I do about going forward. My kids are getting ready for college plus alot more benefits that I was unaware of. Thanks to all of the great Vets on this site. They want steer you wrong!!!!
  8. If I'm not mistaking there is no amount of money that you can have while receiving SSDI because that is money that you paid into the system. There would be concerns only if you were receiving SSI. I'm pretty sure this is correct, but I would check the SSA web or visit a local office.
  9. You can log on to Benefits and go to letter generator. Pull up the one that says benefit summary and service verification letter. It will state if you're P&T there. The other letter are also important as far as commissary and taxes are concerned.
  10. I received my rating code sheet. It has future exams (none) and that my disabilities are static. What does this mean in the Va's world of logic?
  11. How can you verify if your disabilities are static or not? I haven't found anything about it on my decision letter yet.
  12. GB army I'll be glad to donate is there any other way besides using PayPal ? If not I believe my wife has it. I'm old fashioned !!!
  13. I finally received my decision letter granting me TDIU permanent and total. Where can I find out about all the benefits associated with the grant. I read someone's post awhile back concerning free insurance. I want to personally thank everyone on this site. I couldn't have gotten here without your help. I urge every Vet I come in contact with to visit this site for advice and help. Me and my family are truly grateful and blessed !!!!!!
  14. Thanks Pacmanx1 I'll wait for the official letter. Once I get it I'll be coming back for advice from all of the great vets here on this site. I started at 30% and ended with 100% P&T by following instructions giving to me by all of you. If I disagree with the dates concerning backpay is there an official form to file?
  15. On my benefit summary and service verification letter it states Mar 4, 2020 as effective date you became totally and permanently disable due solely to your service connected disabilities. Is this the date that my Backpay starts at a 100% ?
