Single Status Update
Hello Ms. Berta,
This is my first day being registered and posting. I would appreciate information on the following.
I have been accepted into a residential program in Bay Pines for Military Sexual Trauma (MST) - PTSD treatment. Question is, can I receive Financial Compensation (for having no income coming in for 4-8 weeks) while in the program? I am not SC yet although DAV has helped me submit a claim. I was told by the MH provider when the consult was submitted, there maybe a possibility that I can receive Financial Compensation (for having no income coming in for 4-8 weeks) while in the program. I have not been able to confirm this. I am wondering if you have any info on this.
Thank you Tbird- I have been sick with a bad cold and haven't been able to be here-
The answer is from VA web site:
The disability must be service connected before VA will pay any temporary compensation.
