  • 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

How do I go about getting my Comp payments audited?


Question

I was 10% VA rated since leaving active duty.  I am a serving reservist.  At some point back in the early 2010's I was upgraded to 30% VA rated and then in 2016 I was upgraded to 60% VA rated.  I have some VA compensation withheld each year to offset the reserve pay I receive.  However, I believe the computations for both the last increase in VA compensation and several years of the withholding has been calculated incorrectly.  I wrote to the VA and explained where I thought the mistakes had happened and asked them to audit my history.  I got a letter back saying they do not do that.  Who can I request an audit from?

I apologize for not being familiar with how best to respond to each of you separately.  So I will add some info here. The Reserves has done a much better job in allowing medical issues that Activ

Wendy I don't know but to me it sounds more like a DOD rater than a VA problem. Can you go to your personnel dept. on base and see what the process is?

Wendy,  Did you work for the DOD?  I am assuming you did as I don't think the VA will withhold a benefit like that?  I was also under the impression you could only got up to 30% and still be in the reserves?

My (unsubstantiated) opinion? Ask again.  Ask someone else this time.  Did the VA send you a letter "denying an audit?"  (Maybe, but I doubt it).  If they did send you a letter, you can appeal a denial.  

Probably you have someone on the phone who said, "we dont do that".  Its almost certainly a false statement.  

So, try an IRIS email..request an audit.  

Then try the 800 number.  

Finally, try the White house hotline. 

Remember, these people are trying to get rid of you the fastest way possible and that is often by lying.  Or, in many cases ignorance.  

I call it the "teenager" method:  When Mom says no, Ask Dad.  When Mom and Dad say no, Ask Grandma.  When Mom, Dad, Grandma, and Grandpa say no, ask your teacher.  If your teacher says yes, then tell mom that "Your teacher says We are supposed to ....."

This could be a DOD problem but it is unusual-

The VARO ignored my letters requesting audits many times in the past.

I asked the IG to do a recent audit, as well as two VARO directors and the VISN District Counsel.

The audit is in process and being done by St. Paul- far from those two ROs where past error were made.

I sent to all above a copy of an additional audit ofmy DIC and other issues, that revealed evidence of errors to the tune of more than 98 thousand they had thought they didn't have to pay me, but as this separate audit shows, they finally did pay.

Shrekthe tank made a good point- I have been doing research for someone who might join the reserves- I will try to find out the VA  comp requirements

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
