    employment 2.jpeg

    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

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 suggestion on what to do would be to pay all debt off, get 100% debt free. Put 10-15 grand in an emergency only fund and don't touch it unless it is a real no other option emergency. Learn to liv

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 an

LOL. All is well the backpay is more than enough to take care of the bills/debt

Opened a 3k credit card secured through wells fargo about a month ago my credit has gone up 60 points just by doing so.

I have used about 400 dollars worth of the credit card last month payed back the 400. Now this month alone I have used about 200 so far... and plan on using about 400 more. I have about 3k in the bank other than this card that is going to be used to pay off debt that I collected over the years as soon as my back pay hits. I was told to place 10k in a CD and then borrow from it as though it was a personal loan? If that is what I should do I am probably going to borrow from the CD in order to buy a car, truck, bike.. not sure which yet.

I am standing right now at a credit of 630.

My biggest debt is a medical bill that I have prior to being awarded va compensation.

Is it possible to pay like a minimum on that bill or do I have pay in full?

What ever you do, don't mention the award or amount to anyone that might be involved at any level

in a possible collection process. You may be able to work with the medical providers to setup a payment plan.

Depending on the details, it may be possible to get the VA to pay the bill, or part of it.

There is a way to submit such a claim, and naturally, a VA form.

First is the bill for treatment of what is now service connected?

Did any part occur after you sent in your claim or after the EDD of the award?

I'm far far from the expert you would need to consult over such an issue. (Lawyer time?)

I certainly wish that I had complete records of major medical treatment and cost for what are now SC'd conditions.

If the VA charged you co-pay, etc. for treatment prior to the award or after, you can request "an insurance audit".

(Which may be just the tip of the iceberg.)

The bill is for the 5th day out of service I ended up being rushed to the hospital and sent to a mental facility for 3 weeks. The mental facility and the hospital are both billing me for services.

The Dallas Fee Basis is not worth the powder it would take to blow it up.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
