  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

  • 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

Chapter 35

Question

When I was 80% disabled I received money for my son in college. I am now P&T and they retroed it back to before he started college. So now he is able to get the full Chapter 35 benefit. My question is will they ask me to repay the money I was getting when I was 80%. Thanks

I hope this is in the right section.

I might have communicated what I was asking wrong. My son just finished college in May and I have received all the money for him being in college $218 a month. I got my P&T rating in June and they said he could get retro pay for his Chapter 35 benefits which is around $1200 a month times 45 months. I was asking would I have to pay back the $218 a month I received while he was in school since they are going to retro his chapter 35 benefits back to when he started school. Sorry to keep asking this question. Thanks

The retro pay depends on the amount of tuition he paid, during the timeframe they determined you were 100% P & T orTDIU P & T.

I answered your other question yesterday  with a link from the VA,maybe it is on page 1 here.

There are 2 things going on here.  

1.  The Veteran is getting dependent compensation, AND

2.  The Veteran's child is apparently getting Ch. 35 payments, and getting money paid direct to the child.   

     I dont think the VA permits BOTH to happen at the same time.  Reason:  When the child is receiving Ch. 35, it is assumed this will be enough to support the dependent, thus the Veteran can no longer claim the child as a dependent for VA purposes.  

    Source:  I have been through it, with my son attending college on DEA.  

    My intuition, again, says the Vet will have to pay the 218 dependent compensation back, but I dont know that.
