August 1st is when it is supposed to be paid.

In Jan 2009 Sursely v Peake was decided by the federal Court. The decision states the va has no choice but to award multiple clothing allowances to veterans that have more than one service connected disability that requires use of more thant one orthopedic appliance that wears out the clothing. The DAV recently published an article in their newest magazine stating this ruling only applies to amputees. THE DAV IS WRONG! While this would expecially apply to double and triple amputees, there is nothing in the language of the court that limits it to just amputees. If you read the court case closely it applies to all veterans with or without amputations an the VA had not choice but to comply with the ruling.

Hello,

I received word that I have been approved for the annual clothing allowance. Does anyone know when this is paid?

Clothing allowances are released on the third Thursday in August. That is for the veterans that have reoccuring payments. The others are released on a monthly bases. The applications have to be in by 1 August.

Clothing allowances are paid the last week of August to the First week of September. It's true they are supposed to be certified by August 1st but they are paid out annually. If you get one or multiple they will be paid out about the same time.

Sharon I am not sure what you mean by "monthly bases"

Maybe case by case bases if after the August deadline

They are paid out as they are certified on a monthly basis.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
