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

    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.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
