Retroactive Back Pay.

Question

My claim is scheduled to close tomorrow for my backpay.

Does anyone know if it does close how long till the backpay hits the bank?

Also does information only get updated on our claims whenever the site is down?

My retro payment took roughly a week to hit after the claim showed as closed in eBennies. My letter which I received about a week later said 15 days. I imagine it varies by VARO and the number of signatures required for the dollar amount.

I believe the information on eBennies get's updated when your VARO decides to get around to entering the data. My updates throughout the process of my claim usually showed up online between 5 and 6pm on Monday or Tuesday. I assume this was an overtime task for my VARO.

I personally don't believe anything eBenefits says when it comes to the projected dates work will be accomplished. In my experience as well as most others here, those dates are completely spurious and based on a system guess when specific gates are hit within their automated system.

If you're watching a "claim" within eBenefits, you're likely retired military and had to wait for DFAS to complete the pay audit before the VA will then redo its own pay math then pay you when that calculation is complete and approved. The problem is that the same people who rate and approve claims are the same people who calculate and approve retro payments. As one VSO told me once, their priority is paying the veteran something each month, then they get around to paying retro as the opportunity presents itself. It can be a long wait.

Keep an eye on the payment history in eBenefits. That should give you an idea if money has actually been queued up once the claim closes. Mine hit pretty fast once the process finally completed.

I usually get my Retro in a few weeks after claim closes.

I hope the 1800 number is wrong. Told me that they can take up to a year before the claim is closed.

I have a back pay of around 61k coming to me.

I am not retired military but I am 100% service connected.

I have a question also bout what I should do when I get my back pay.

Do you think it would be more beneficial to me if I opened a secured credit card of 10k?
I have a very poor credit score at the moment for the time I left service till the day I got va was about 2 years.

    • 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.
