Awaiting TDIU retro pay


veteranwife0523

Question

My veteran was granted TDIU 7Dec 2018 with a retro back to September 2013. We've contacted our senator's office and were told that the Granted portion of our case was sent by the AMC to the Finance department at the Louisville RO on 14 March 2019 because it required "additional processing". Anyone know what the "additional processing" means? We have yet to receive any letters from the RO, only the decision letter from the BVA.

You wont be getting any back pay until "about" the time of the VARO decision.  Rarely, you could get it a couple days earlier, but most Vets dont get it retro until after the VARO decision arrives.  

Now, for the bad news (if that wasnt bad enough)...

Its taking the VARO 6 to 18 months to implement a BVA decision.  Its wrong..and not fair to Vets..yes.  You can try calling the white house hotline, but, "expiditious processing" has a double standard with VA.  

1 Expiditious processing for VA employees:  Get it done in 2 weeks, prior to their next pay check. 

2. Expiditious processing for Vets.  Get it done whenever you get a round tuit, as long as its within 2 years or so.  (It took VA 3 years to implement my BVA decision!  They implemented "part of it" in 6 months...I had to fight them tooth and nail for 3 years..rattling many cages...to get them to implement my BVA decision.)  

    Hopefully, yours will be done much faster, but the VA does things their own way, in their own time.  Its not like a company where you can do business with their competitor.  We have no choice but to wait on them no matter how long it takes..and VA has "zero" accountability.

Call the 1-800# ask about it

or go to your R.O. in person Take your Award letter  and ask to see a supervisor and ask about it. (Retro)

 

I am guessing this is a large amount of retro  and  because of this  it does take longer for the retro check to be cut to you and needs additional signatures...usually about 2 -3 months...your wait its about time you see some movement  but it could come any day now.(jmo)

or check your Bank Account?
