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.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
