Dependant Disability Pay And Retroactive Pay?

Question

Within the last year my disability rating was increased to 40%. Of course this amount allows dependents to be considered in the payment amount. After getting notice of the rate increase, I applied to be compensated for the new monthly amount with dependents. Its been about nine months and I haven't heard anything. I was married and had my family while I was on active duty. My main question is .... if the decision is made for recognize my dependents, will I receive any back pay for the dependents? Thank you very much for your help!

You will definitely get it retro...eventually.

For Both my kids I submitted their dependent claims on ebenefits the day after they were born. It took 8-12 months to get it finalized....

I have been trying to the right answer for my dependent retro payment. I submitted mine on 26 Sept 2011 two weeks after i got my pension,i got approved last Feb. I was told that I submitted my claim a year after I got my pension that I applied in Jan 14. I told them to look at my history and they will see when I first applied. I called for the last  year and a hlf and got different stories. Finally I got some to see the pic, they told me that I send the paperwork this past Jan and I ex[lained to them I sent it with the original paperwork, not my fault when they found. I told them that I recieved the letter on how much they held from the beginning when I got approved, they said I did not appeal, I said why would I appeal what you owe me, so they go by the start date or when they recieved the paperwork, ie birth and marriage certificate.

I received my letter from the VA confirming that my wife has been added to my claim. I received it Friday 10/14/2016. How soon will I see the retroactive pay hit my account?

Not much longer If they have processed it.

I have seen it processed and paid within 7 days.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
