You'd have to contact VA. They should have mailed you something unless it was COLA increase. That would just be your prior amount x the cola percentage plus any dependents or extra smc you might have.

In December 2022 I received an increase in my monthly disability award from $905. 04 to $1,041.82. Could I receive correspondence via email or USPS reflecting that increase?

If you do not  have a va.gov log in ID you may have to go to a VA facility to set it up to get your letters downloaded. Otherwise, you just have to wait for Dejoy's US Mail.

Looking at the amount of your increase, it is more than the 8.7% COLA increase, so some small additional amount is involved.  No idea what that could be.  Looks like it could be a travel payment but that should show up as a separate item on your bank transactions.

Veterans' compensation pay is based on rating percentages. If your rating percentage changed, the VA typically sends out a notification letter within ten (10) business days. After the ten (10) business days, veterans can call the 1 (800) 827-1000 National Call Center and request an email copy of the latest decision, or you can go to va.gov to pull up the latest benefits verification letter/proof on income letter. You can also check ebenefits and check on disabilities to check your current disability ratings.

Pacman has the better answer.  You can get anything you are missing by calling the 1 800 827 1000 number.  The rep takes a long wait to get but it is worth while if you do not have online va.gov access.
