Award Letter Question

Rate this question

Guest Berta


A friend just got an award letter from the VA-

we cant figure this out and they didnt send the check yet-

Monthly entitlement amount

$1,930 Oct 1, 1995 effective date adjustment

1,979 Dec 1, 1995 cost of living adjustment

2,036 Dec 1, 1996 " """""""

and so forth up to Dec 1, 2004 rate which is $2,429 (but for 2005)

When they say Dec 1, 1995 it means the 12 month 1996 rate-right?

and if we take each Dec rate it is for the following year?

AS I see it they owe him $1,930 for Oct and Nov and Dec 1995, then the 12 months for 2,036 -1996 rate and so forth?

When he gets the check we will compare it- many of you recall I had to send them a letter some time back that they either snookered me 300 bucks on my DIC or $11,000 on it.

They sent me the 300(+-) DIC payment and then $11,200. They had made two distinct mathematical errors in separate retro letters.

I had a similiar award letter -as this vet just got-it looked good but they somehow completely left out a whole year in their total. And it took me quite some time to try to figure it out.

But after I sent them letter they fixed it all in 3 weeks.

Do the above calculations seem right?

No prior SC comp to deduct.

The Veteran would have 5,790 1995, 23,748 for 1996 and 24,432 1997

for total 53,970


Thanks Dorothy- they owe him up to 1999. They paid him some time back for 1999 to 2005.
