    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

Certificate of Eligibility (COE)


Hi guys, I am hoping you can help me out.  I am in the process of buying a home,  getting  a V.A. loan.  The department that gives the COE, has notice my SSN number is off by one.   I indicated that several years ago I did bring that up to the V.A., and I received several different answers how to proceed.   I was told not to worry because the V.A. uses your file number more then your SSN.  (big mistake on my part), and I forgot about it.    I have gone thru my C-file, and the only thing that has the wrong social  security number is my DD214, and a medical piece of paper as well.  My Veteran Identification Data bank has my correct social security number.  My loan officer had a conference call with  someone from the VA, and he was nothing more then a jerk.  I have my social security card, I will provide a sworn affidavit  that this is my correct number.  I am suppose to close on the house in ten days, so any advice would be helpful.   I told the guy at the VA to look at my File number for verification, and he said that wasn't possible.  Then when I asked him then why do you have it on the COE form, he stumbled and stuttered, and said it was just to "fill a spot on the form".   Thanks .

My DD-214 also had my SS# wrong.  I was still on active duty when we changed from serial numbers to SS#s.  I requested, and received, a corrected DD-215 with the correct SS# from the National Archives.  I did this by phone a long time ago, but I remember how helpful the NA rep was and getting the DD-215 in a matter of days. I ended up with 4 Honorable Discharges and only the last one used SS# so the problems were resolved with the single DD-215.

Hope this helps!

    • 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.
