BACK PAY:  Does  VA give retro back pay all at once or do they break it down...I used a va retro calculator and in low end and high end scenarios I came up with $40,000 plus....7 year back pay on one condition 5 years on another..long story short called VA because after waiting 2 plus weeks from receiving award letter they stated I had a payment of only half that being scheduled for this week couldn't give any info on any future if any payments

I had that same question about 3 months ago.  For me, it turned out the retro was off, and off by "a lot"...that is my retro should have been twice as much as it was.  

It was corrected about 3 weeks after I requested an audit.  

However, I have heard other Vets mention the VA made 2 payments.  My advice is to wait about 3 or 4 weeks, and if it does not resolve itself, request an audit.  

Were your effective dates correct???
