Common Or Uncommon?


luvHIM

Question

Just wondering how common or uncommon it is to get a benefit payment before actual receipt of your award notification from the RO?

AND;

Is it possible to receive the award notification from RO before it is actually updated in the system? For example, if you call the 1-800# and vet rep doesn't show anything; but then you get a decision letter or notification in the mail. Does that happen? And, if so, is it more uncommon than common?

Thanks

I always got the money before the award letter came-

sometimes they dont update their 800# PC until Monday so an award could made and not show up there for days.

My claims pattern is a hoot "notice first, payment second then payment first, notice second."

I wonder, is there a way a veteran can see thier VA finance data file? online or in person?

DFAS retirees have a website to view personal payment records.cg

Just one more question on this. Are payments made randomly in the month or on particular dates (e.g. first of the month)?

From the testimony I have heard and seen, anything is possible and could happen in any order. As for the 1-800 claims number, I don't think they update that system very regularly.

Kinda like the big spiel that they gave me. Ya GOTTA have a bank account so's we can direct deposit your check. You HAVE to have this bank account or ELSE!

So, I fill out their VA claim form, online, and it requires your bank routing # and your checking account #, so's I fill that out like the good guy that I am.

Then I get a notice from them, they GOTTA have my bank routing number and my checking account number.

So, I send them my bank routing number and my checking account number.

Then I get a check in the mail.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
