Do you have an attorney?  This sounds like its for attorney fees.  It can also be for a "non attorney" representative, such as Alex Graham, if you hired someone like that.  

Another possibility:

Apportionment.  This typically happens when you are divorced and paying (or not paying) child support.  Your ex can take a court order to VA for child support, and the VA will "apportion" it, and pay part to your spouse, as directed in the divorce decree, or other documents from the court.  

The VA wont collect money for  creditors out of your comp, but they will make sure your kids child support is paid.  

Lastly, if a doctor declared you incompetent to handle finances, a Fiduciary will be appointed.  If this happened, then you should take action to see to it that YOUR choice of a fiduciary is known.  

An example may be your spouse, brother, or a trusted friend.  You dont want the VA to pick your fiduciary, as the VA fiduciary program gives out tshirts that say, "My money was taken by a corrupt fiduciary"

Yes I do have an attorney so it must be for the attorney fees. Thank you, I do hope this means I have a favorable decision on my appeal and it’s close to being completed

Well, yes.  At hadit, I always recommend you check with your attorney..he can likely see VBMS, so he probably knows your rating.  

They wont be taking attorney fees out of your retro, unless you have been granted something.

My verification letter changed and it’s showing that I won my appeal and I’m considered Total and Permanent with no scheduler in the future per EBenefits.

 I’m confused as to why the appeal is still showing open if the letter was updated with my new information.

Just wait until you get your award packet in the mail...get it and read all about how they gave you your award.  fill out any applications that you need or want like ChampVA Insurance and educational benefits for your spouse  and free 10.000.00 life insurance policy  and any or other applications you get..be sure to read all these...and make copies and keep in a safe place for 20 years.

Being awarded P&T is a good thing and extra benefits for you and spouse & kids.

Congratulation on this award.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
