  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Payment History: Returned Payments? (what is this?!)


Christheexplorer

Question

Hello again Vets.

So today I was sifting through E-Benefits, and entered the 'Payment History' section. I looked through all the Post 9/11 Payments and MGI Active Duty payments and seen all the times I've gotten my GI Bill check.  

Then I click on the 'Returned Payments' portion and.... WTF? There are 6 separate entries under the tab. All between the years of 2008-2009, totalling about $7,500 - is this money that was sent to me and I can reclaim?  

Here's what I am seeing:

 

Date Amount Type Method Returned Date
11/30/2009 $1,150.00 Post-9/11 GI Bill Direct Deposit 12/02/2009
11/11/2009 $583.38 Post-9/11 GI Bill Direct Deposit 11/15/2009
11/11/2009 $2,261.67 Post-9/11 GI Bill Direct Deposit 11/15/2009
11/01/2009 $583.38 Post-9/11 GI Bill Direct Deposit 11/03/2009
11/01/2009 $2,261.67 Post-9/11 GI Bill Direct Deposit 11/03/2009
08/12/2008 $587.20 Montgomery GI Bill Active Duty  

08/14/200

 

 

This is pretty shocking to me and I'm not sure what it means. I tried to chat but being here in California it was too late, so I took down the 1-800 number.  Anybody have insight on this?

Put simply, a returned payment is a failed payment. If you were getting direct deposit, the payment was rejected by ACH and could not be deposited (bad account number, bad routing number, etc.) 

Did you get paper checks to offset these direct deposits because your bank would not take the deposits? Your bank can tell you if you don't still have your statements. 

Did you change your address or banking preference around that time? 

Also, if you never, ever received that money, there is a way to trace what happened. The call centers can issue check tracers. The call center reps can also prove to you if you did receive that money somehow and just don't remember a different settlement method.

      I applied for this years clothing allowance and have not got a denial letter from the VA and have not received the allowance.  Does anyone know if the allowance has been paid out yet?

      I submitted my claim 9/24, I had the C&P exams on 11/6, and I am still waiting.  I talked to my VSO today and she said I was "Awaiting adjudication" and that it could be several more months and I may need more exams.  I know the VA is a long process, but it has been 10 months already and I am not sure what "awaiting adjudication" means.  The VSO seemed a little annoyed, I call about 1 time a month, it just is frustrating.  I don't know why a claim should take 10 months, I know I have read about appeals taking years so I shouldn't complain.  I just feel that 10 months is an unreasonable amount of time to be "months away"

      Hi, Berta (everyone), I am curious if there’s any instructions on how to go about:
      DIC is granted & accrued / death pension benefits are denied. My VA rep (Colorado VA office), recently explained to me that my mom was awarded DIC benefits ( I filed on her behalf ), effective the day of his death (my dad died Dec.30, 2017) of...
      1-Pneumonia  
      2-COPD
      3-CAD
      but, we (she) was denied accrued because the Army / VA did not owe him any money, since he never filed for benefits while alive. While that part is true, he never filed because he was told he did not have agent orange, he was told he “wasn’t in the right theater”, course that “theater” explanation is false. Vietnam establishes theater now, period. My dad was on ground (in air) for a year. Further my dad’s records I received from archives (medals included) do not have a lot of information in them. I have a hard time understanding what they do say. My dad was 191st Military Intellegence, not sure if that is why I have trouble making sense of the records they gave me or if that has anything to do with why I had such a trouble free approval on DIC portion of our claim (approved first time & expedited approval within 3 months)..to which we are grateful. However, I have an original document from 1989 that reads, “ In regards to YOU’RE request to be tested for agent orange...Donald L. Welch...” (my dad)..you’re appointment is scheduled for ...1989 at ... etc. then written in red pen on the top of the document is written “6-8 weeks”. I prusume his “testing” (set for an entire day 8am-6pm) did not inform my dad he had exposure, because he then would have filed! Yet, clearly he did (death certificate reads CAD) & DIC awarded for presumptive CAD! Throughout his lengthy medical history of:  Arteries blocked (multiple), Surgical stents, cardiac-arrest, COPD,  bronchitis-chronic, lung problems, etc. He believed he did not qualify for benefits. Months before his death he went to VA medical at his brothers insistence & on the way home from getting RX (for the first time ever from the VA) he told his brother he was told he wasn’t in the “theater” for agent orange benefits. By the time he got his first RX delivered through the mail...he was dead....of CAD. How do I prove establish that he would have filed for benefits (as far back as 1989, document attached), if they had not told him he didn’t qualify & wasn’t exposed? How do I get addditional records when he was military intelligence? I can’t even find out what battles, his medal citations are even from. I also know his helicopter crashed while he was in Vietnam and his back had either whipping marks or shrapnel scarred all over it...I want to know why. No records if him being a POW. Can anyone link me in the right direction? I’ll have to figure out how to attach documents to post- will follow through.

      I am the sole caretaker for my spouse which makes it extremely difficult to leave and go to a VA facility to file my claim. When I registered for Ebenefits it says I have to have a Premium Account but I cannot just leave for the in person verification.
      It is imperative that I get benefits because of recent health status and also the full time care my wife will need if/when I need a treatment plan.
       
      Can somebody direct me on how to get VA Form 21-526 filled out and also to obtain my C File? I have a portion of my medical record  frm my time in service in the Army from 1972-1976.
       
      Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated, I live in a fairly remote area without a local VSO or Rep.

      I have been lurking around here for years and this is my first post!

      So I'm 70% disabled vet right now and going through the process of getting a higher rating. I put together a Petition on the White House site and would like for everyone who reads this post to at least give it a read. It will only take a minute of your time and would increase benefits to 100% disabled vets.

    • 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,

      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.
