  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

BACK PAY ERROR - NO Question

Question

Howdy All,

I recently was bumped up to 100% from 90% after most of my NOD was ruled in my favor by the higher level review in the legacy process. So this is definitely not a complaint. The NOD approvals made my effective date 29 Dec 2017. The back pay was supposed to be for around 28 months. Then like 2 weeks later after I received the decision I received retroactive pay.  Unfortunately it was only for about 15 months. I submitted an IRIS request about it. So now they are doing an audit. The original claim that I filed the NOD for bumped me from 40% to 90% effective 29 Dec 2017. So they took about six months on that one cause it also affected my military retirement pay. They got that right. The VA rep thinks that who ever submitted the NOD details for retroactive pay saw all of the original stuff and probably made a mistake on the dates. So food for thought, if you are successful and get bumped up that requires retroactive pay double check it. If it's not correct let the VA know. I used the "Retro Pay Calculators" that I found online via Google. Not foolproof but pretty close. I'll post an update when I get one.

Congratulations!  Yep, just becaue you "win" does not mean you can stop fighting, VA often lets you win the "small hand" but bonks you when the big bucks cards are dealt.

Good news. Apparently the audit is done. I just received the remaining retro-active pay. Glad their calculators work. 🙂

Gajen Great news! Congrats on the win. 100% club is not easy; lotta work. If you can, when you get your retro, maybe consider making a contribution to Hadit. Ms Tbird does a great job keeping this forum open and it can't be done without contributions from winners like yourself.Nice job.

    • 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,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      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.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
