Received VA disability in error?

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




I received a check from the US Treasury for $40,011.29. However my va disability claim is still processing and I’ve never been rated ever. 

it is typed out to my name and address and says:

VA COMPENSATION - 12/01/19 - 12/31-19

it looks just like this check attached. 
Is this some kind of error/mistake?

Have you ever set up direct deposit? If so, they woUldnt  send you a check. Your claim could be done and they haven't notified you yet. The money often comes before the decision. 


Best case, take it to a bank and they can verify it for .you

Check Ebenefits. Disabilities will tell  you what they approved. This sounds like back pay for a 100% 12-14 months give or take dependents etc. If you dont think its right, call peggy....800-827-1000

I just checked my ebenefits and found this attached so it is confirmed that they actually sent it to me...

HOWEVER Upon VA tracker my VA still says it is under evidence gathering and review and decision. AND, I still have a few other C&p exams to go to.

They dont always need C and Ps for claims. Might Not have updated Ebenefits all the way yet. At least you know the check is correct.

Thanks yall. 

I just checked eBenefits and see I was rated 70% and did not know this. 

However some of my obvious symptoms that I was seen MULTIPLE times IN the army was not SC such as:

GERD, Shin Splints, and back pain. Why is that? Weird...

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    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
