Direct Deposit


ewok

Question

Just wondering what a ballpark figure is for direct deposit to kick in after service connection is granted. It's been about a month since I received the official VA award letter, but I am still receiving paper checks (the initial check and the one earlier this week). I filled in my bank info on the original claim form so theoretically they should have it.

You might want to check with the VA .......sometimes things are overlooked....My DD was within the month after applying.

If you call the VA (1-800-number), there is a direct number to set up direct deposit. Call and make sure they have your "bank routing number". ~Wings

theorticals are only good for scientific applications and if you haven;t figured it our yet, the VA ain't scientific, it took them 4 months to add my dependents 2 weeks to set up my DD after I called the 1 800 number after my initial check came, I worked for the Post Office for 17 years all my checks are DD.

I used the VA web site to ask them what was up with my direct deposit. This is the answer they gave me:

--

We do not have your account set up for direct deposit at this time. Please contact us at 1 800-827-1000 to set your payments up for direct deposit. We will need to confirm your financial institutions routing number and your account number. Because of the time frame it takes to process claims we do not automatically use the information provided on your application.

Thank you for using the Information Routing Inquiry System (IRIS)

Stupidly they don't use the info they ask for. Thanks for the replies.

The VA has always told me that changes made before the 10th of a month will be effective the next following month. I've had to make changes 3 or 4 times over the past few years and this has always proven to have been the case for me.

    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?”
