  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Va Disablility Compensation Backpay

Question

I recently (nov. 23) got a letter from my DAV rep. saying that the VA had decided to increase my SC disability rating up tp 50%. I am currently at 30% and was reduced from 40% to 30% in June 2010. I was told by my DAV rep that the VA is in the final processes of finalizing the decision and that two more people needed to sign off on it. My question is does anyone know roughly how long it takes from the DAV letter to the final verification by the VA. I would also like to know if my normal check gets direct deposited will the backpay also get direct deposited? Do I get the backpay as soon as it is finalized or do they send them out like on the first of the month. My finances are extremely tight right now and I am just wondering when I will be getting the backpay.

hmcord,Welcome to Hadit.com .Yes, if you are signed up with VA for direct depositthen the retro comp should come into your account by way of direct deposit.It seems to me it will be a substantial amount being that it requires additional signatures.There really is no accurate answer as to when it will all be finalized.If I were you I would check my bank account every 2 or 3 days to see if a deposit has been made.

Many times the cash hits before we receive official notification.

Hang in there.

    • 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.
