I was reading a article on the internet about the VA just paid all back pay up to date,this was yesterday. I called the 800 number and the person said the check was mailed yesterday. I asked don't they direct deposit it? She said no for some reason they mailed it. Guess what I got it today the check $7524.00 for back pay CRDP. After about 30 phones calls to DFAS and the VA, many e mails and letters i got it.....Now I'm going to start on the rest of back for 100% ratings that were back dated making me 100% P&T and year earlier then the last claim date....

DFAS and the VA have sophisticatd calculators-to figure out retro

but they are run by humans-

when you have a minute to deal with it-by all means see if the retro amount is correct.

Good for you. Atta way! Check the compensation table rate charts for the years past up to and including the current to make sure the amount you received is correct. I usually go to www.va.gov and check benefits compensation and go to the table rates where you can get the amounts back some years too. Just click on the year in question and you will see the rates for those years in values. Good luck with all of your proesses in your claims endeavors. B)

Just a followup, I don't know the periods I was paid for, all I got was the check which was wonderfull. But anybody expecting back pay maybe should check on it. I got the information off "Retired Officers Assc" that all back pay was paid, this was thursday last week. By the way I am retired enlisted but do get e mails from them. Very imformitve site.

If they're saying everyone's been paid, that's incorrect. Everyone has NOT been paid. My husband being one of them. The DFAS folks told him he's not the only one, either. All delayed payments are related to the VA not sending in a form SLC-06, something or n'other. We wrote to the OGC wanting to know why there's been a two-year delay since my husband was told he was eligible to receive his retro. Not a penny so far, he called DFAS last week and was told there was still no form filed. We sent them the rating sheet we received from the VA, only it appears that is not good enough.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
