Direct Deposit

Rate this question

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.

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.
