    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

When should I expect compensation & how much?

Question

See success story here for background: 28 day claim success story

Effective dates on all my disabilities are 01 August 2017 (claim submission date), at a combined rating of 90%.  Claim was closed out on 29 August 2017. On eBenefits, there is no payment history from the VA as of yet and my bank account agrees!  I've received my paper letter from VA with the monthly amount I should expect. Everything aligns between ebenefits and the official letter I received in the mail.

My question is, when I should receive compensation, and, if the answer is 01 October, will the amount be 1 month's worth of disability compensation or 2? 

Thank you!

Usually after an award the $$ goes straight to your bank  even before you get the letter, if your set up to have your comp sent to your Bank electronically? you should have already gave your Bank Routing #

YOU MENTION

''Effective dates on all my disabilities are 01 August 2017 (claim submission date), at a combined rating of 90%.  Claim was closed out on 29 August 2017. O'' 

 

How long or how many months did it take to win your Award from the time you first filed?  is that date Aug 1st 2017? if yes

You should get the full month of Aug/Sept   so you should get two months of back pay..as I understand it and being VA Pays the beginning of the month on the last day of the last month for the next month  in other words they pay on the 1st of every month for the beginning of that month.

you should get 2 Months on what they S.C. Your S.C. %  is.  

You mention 90% combined rating, so you will be paid at that rating plus any dependents you listed.

its kind complicated   you may want to ask your VSO

if this was not done electronically  then no telling how long it will take.

Note:I could be wrong  other may chime in

With an effective date of August 1st, that has be wondering too. I can see why you ask. In my experience, retro arrived within a week of receiving the letter in the mail. A couple of times it arrived a day before.

Yeah, it might be worth a call to the VA. I'm somewhat concerned.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
