Question

My husband received a decision from the AMC a few days ago in the mail, and we are confused as to how to figure it out. He called the AMC, and the person on the phone couldn't explain it. We called the 800 VA number, and they couldn't explain it either. So we've come to this board to see if anyone can help interpret this for us. The information is as follows:

Total Award Amount: $1196

Amount Withheld: $1063

Monthly Entitlement Amount $133

Payment Start Date: September 1, 1993

Reason for Change: effective date of increased payments/military retired pay withholding

Total Award Amount: $1227

Amount Withheld: $1090

Monthly Entitlement Amount: $137

Payment Start Date: December 1, 1993

Reason for Change: legislative increase/military retired pay withholding

Total Award Amount: $1227

Amount Withheld: $523

Monthly Entitlement Amount $704

Payment Start Date: July 1, 1994

Reason for Change: military retired pay withholding

Total Award Amount: $1227

Amount Withheld: $0

Monthly Entitlement Amount $1227

Payment Start Date: October 1, 1994

Reason for Change: previous payments continue unchanged

Total Award Amount: $1259

Amount Withheld: $0

Monthly Entitlement Amount $1259

Payment Start Date: December 1, 1994

Reason for Change: retired pay withholding

I'm almost afraid to take a guess, but would like to understand all this. Thank you!

It sounds like the VA is going to pay him for his disability without the offset for his military retired pay. I suppose he is 70% disabled.

Shows you how they calculated back pay. It starts with the first calculation and includes money that was paid back and ends with COLA for 1994. I suspect that you will soon be getting a nice sized check to brong you current.

I would estimate about 150,000 but as you know it is not a 100% award.

Hubby's at 90% schedular. He received another 10% from the Board, which I believe, according to my calculations, brings him to 100% according to VA math, but again, I can't get the AMC or the VA, national or local, to verify his ratings, and his pay hasn't changed. I tried the complaint venue online, but all we're told is that the RO doesn't have his file because it's at the AMC (and I assume then on to the CVA, because we're also there awaiting a hearing).

I'm sorry, but I didn't understand what was meant by "it was not 100% award."

I guess I'm trying to figure out what gets multiplied by what. The second page of the letter says, "You will receive a payment covering the initial amount due under this award, minus any withholdings, in approximately 15 days. Payment will then be made at the beginning of each month for the prior month."

Does that mean I have to multiply the Monthly Entitlement Amount by the number of months between the Payment Start Date and now? For each item or just the last item dated 12-1-94?

I'm sorry, don't mean to be dense...

Vicki- I am sorry to ask a question when you have asked many here but-

your husband is military retired- is he eligible for Combat Related Special Monthly Compensation?

Is the 60% for any combat related disability?

The VA does not handle CRSC -Combat Related Special Comp- mil retirees-

Here is an Army CRSC site with the criteria for this- each branch has a site-

The application should be downloadable from here-

I dont know if this would affect him but might help someone else out there-
