Hi, I hope I posted in the correct forum. I have three 10% ratings with VA math is a 27.1% rating. My compensation pay is 30%. Am I entitled to travel pay; at my VA clinic they say you need a full 30% rating to recevie travel pay.

Thanks,

Phil

Who is eligible for travel?

Veterans rated 30% or more SC for travel relating to any condition

Veterans rated less than 30% for travel relating to their SC condition

Veterans receiving VA pension benefits for all conditions

Veterans with annual income below the maximum applicable annual rate of pension for all conditions

Veterans who can present clear evidence that they are unable to defray the cost of travel

Veterans traveling in relation to a Compensation and Pension (C&P) Examination

Certain veterans in certain emergency situations

Certain non-veterans when related to care of a veteran (attendants & donors)

Beneficiaries of other Federal Agencies (when authorized by that agency)

Allied Beneficiaries (when authorized by appropriate foreign government agency)

Found on http://www4.va.gov/h...AQ.asp#eligible

P. S. VA combines all ratings and you are 30% not 27.1

From what I have heard, each region/site may have somewhat different rules.

At my VAMC, they will only pay travel if you live outside the Birmingham city limits. Here they also take a deductible from your travel pay, but after three visits in the same calendar month, they no longer take the deductible.

The local VA VocRehab follows a different set of rules and only pays if you live 25 or more miles from their location.

Contact the travel department at your local VAMC and find out if they have any special restrictions.

yes. The rule reads at least 30% or travel for SC conditions.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.

      The site is supported through ads and ad free subscriptions, we are also asking for any support you would like to send our way. You can give a $1 or more it all helps. Keep in mind though that it is NOT tax deductible and we are NOT a non profit. As the site grows so do the costs and ads and subscription do not always keep pace with the costs. Any help is appreciated, but not required.
