I had read the Senate was considering an extra $200 a month in the checks of SSA, SSI, and veteran disability.

The $200 would have lasted into the end of 2021.

Has anybody heard anything?

I seen on CNN Where the House Senate  will vote today (1:00pm EST) on who gets what and how much,  most of this stimulus package will go to the big corporations and medical to Pay Workers who have been sent home to stay during this outbreak.

As for as I know every American should get something?

Personally I don't think they know who gets what and how much?


but they did make a ''DEAL''on the 2 trillion stimulus package.

I read a news article yesterday regarding veterans and social security recipients. Because they are already receiving direct direct deposit, it would be easier to get the payments out to them.

Like @Buck52, I have not heard about the extra $200, but it would be nice...

I heard that 200 buck thing as well-once at Fox, but nothing more on it.

Certainly any disabled veteran who is still working with receipt of a SC comp amount as well ,should be included in the Stimulus payment....along with any non disabled veteran who is employed.They said the cut off would be $99,000 or more per year wages.

I think they said they would use IRS 2018 tax info to determine what Americans get the stimulus but- who knows---

I was on ZOOM for an hour and watched the news when I was done, and the news still seems to be the same- nothing concrete on the Stimulus.......

From what I have been hearing the stimulus monies are taxable.

    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?”

    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
