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

Persian Gulf Illness Claim Approved

Question

I got a letter from the DAV that stated that my increase was approved, however I have not gotten anything from the VA yet. When I spoke to the DAV, they said that it could be 3 days to 14 days. The Va will not tell me a thing. Money is really tight, has anyone had this situation. How long did you wait for retro pay? How long did it take the VA to act?? any help is appreciated. thanks

dav letter is dated 2/3/11

Keep an eye on your bank account, the retro may beat the award letter.

That is what I am doing was just wondering, claim is about 2.5 years old, so it should be a good sum to pay off some bills and get my head above water

It will require additional signatures if it is very large, but I'm not sure the amount or how much the delay is. Best thing is to just "hurry up and wait." Either way congrats, mine was denied first time around and I will have to file an NOD soon.

I know a Gulf vet who got a big check in the mail less than 3 weeks from his C&P...mind you it took 3over 3 yrs to get his 2 C&P's and the VARO and his VSO didn't have a clue what was going on...It took a couple of weeks for them to realize what happened...he laughed all the way to the bank. He did sign up for auto deposit after he got 2 monthly checks. But the first one was a doosey...over 47k SO good luck and keep checking the bank too.

I am amazed that it was approved the first time around, I have two other claims that are being released to the BVA now that this one is cleared up. I am hoping by the end of next week to see it in may bank account, would be nice.

    • 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.
