    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

After a debt repayment pla, my file disappeared

Question

I drill and have a compensation. Usually the debt for this is taken out at some point during the next year. Received a letter in November that it would be taken out effective January. Usually, this means I will get it at the end of December. It wasn't received December 30, which I was counting on. So I called and set it up to be taken out over the next year, 2017, because I was counting on it for December. This was not a problem and I was told I would get a refund in seven days and February 1 it would be back to normal, except for the debt. But now, my payment history "can not be accessed at this time" by phone or online. I have never done this before and have been having panics over it. I'm hoping to get some peace of mind.

I am not familiar with your type of situation but maybe IRIS could help.

Go to https://www.va.gov/ and click on the upper right "Contact Us" button, then click on "ask a Question"and you will be directed to the Integrated Response System.

You will need to give some some info  and then ask them the question you have.

Ask for an email reply so that you have hard copy proof of their response.

It is all I can come up with...never saw a situation like this before.

Maybe others will chime in.

Berta,

 

Just wanted to let you know that with your help, I won my CUE case!

I was lucky to get a quick review yesterday at the VA, and the review officer was astounded at the evidence I had to prove my case.

ALL thanks to you:biggrin:

Thanks,

Allan

Drill pay is now 'awarded' in the past, making a debt. It used to be 'awarded' in future, making a 'recoupment'.

Debt Management (DMC) can't manipulate recoupment repayment amounts, only debts. The system to 'offset' a comp debt with comp pay is very simple, automated and rarely messes up.

If I understand correctly- They system took your entire monthly comp payment, and you called DMC for a partial refund? Refunds take about 10 days and there's really no 'expedites' unless there's alot of 'push.' Every, single person who calls needs an 'expedite' on the refund, as you could imagine.

You could call DMC to verify the refund went thru, and wasn't rejected.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
