ADD these up:

1. Veterans copayments went up.

2. No COLA for Veterans 2 years in a row.

3. VA employees rake in millions in bonuses: http://www.vawatchdogtoday.org/

Who is this a good deal for? Not for Veterans!

Our COLA's are tied to Social Security. It's that simple. For the first time since I have been dealing with VA I think that maybe they deserve the bonus as it appears they actually have made some progress in helping Veterans.

Just my opinion.

bronco,

Why do you continue pissing and moaning about COLA's and

bonuses. This is year after year.

You know VA has nothing to do with the decision on no COLA's

and you know how COLA's are figured.

It's one thing to complain about something that the VA has control over

but to complain about something like COLA's that they don't have control over is just

a waste of time and breath AND you know this but just keep on pissing and

moaning about it.

This is getting old so find a new record to play.

BTW - I'll bet that your 100% compensation funds hit the bank when it's

supposed to each month.

That's would actually be something positive you could at least

consider once in awhile -

but then when it comes to VBA I see you very rarely

consider anything positive.

I concur, I don't think I've ever read a positive post from broncovet on this or any other site. He might be on the Naughty list. I think the VA's doing the best they can at this point with what they have to work with. There's always a Debbie Downer in the crowd and you can Identify them quickly. In this crowd it's broncovet.

Well, the Bonuses are something I sometimes take umbrage with...., however the Government pays small bonuses to most employees and most of the time it's not very much and part of their comp package. I don't like to see the bonuses tied to production and more on quality. Production based bonuses provide the wrong incentive. That is a management problem Government wide and not just a VA issue.

Hang in there my friend,'broncovet'.

I too find it frustrating with the way of the world, "CEO, managers' bonuses vs. the line workers crumbs" syndrome.

However, in this case you must admit we are talking apples and oranges...

Best wishes for a very positive and happy new year,

Cmdr. Bob

I get a kick out of Broncovet's posts. If I wanted to read post after post on how wonderful the VA is and how great they handle claims I would go the the VA Website and read their press releases.

  • 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.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    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
