We would need to know what years? And the amount and percentage for each year.

wow i think my head will explode !!!!! so it looked like my calculations were close . but then i went down the va rabbit hole and looked at my total of lump sums payed to date and it says that i have a total of 4950 $ payed to me. now i know this must be wrong because in 2007 i got 1% ,2011 2% and 2013 i maxed out (100%) with an award pay out of 2% . SOOOOOO what gives, is the info on my vac account correct ? then if so they owe me around 9k . Please help

Unfortunately, they paid lump any award less than 5% at a significantly lower rate. A 1% award in 2006 was only $654, 2% was $1308, 3% was $1963, and 4% was $2617. Yet 5% jumped up almost $10000, to $12500. So what I think happened, is that you were paid the lump sums awards completely separately, at 1%, and 2% awards twice , instead of paying that third award at the cumulative 5% rate. But when they calculated the top up, they looked at what you should have been paid at 5%, compared to the new rates, and not what had actually been paid out. So I would request a complete review of your file, and they will see that, at 5% under the NVC, you should have been paid far more than just $5000, plus the top up.

This has drastically changed as of this month, because now awards less than 5% are paid exactly at that percentage of the maximum award. So 1% is paid at $3600.

Absolutely not.

Basically, what you are saying is that between three awards, you were paid a total of $4950.

What VAC is saying is that you were supposed to have been paid roughly $15000, leaving a top up of $1943.

But even if the three awards are calculated separately, it should look like this.

2007 -1% = $3039
2011 -2% = $6501
2013 -2% = $6810
Or = $7486, to bring it up to the max award of $17026 for 5% disability rating.

you would then deduct previous payments of $4950, leaving a top up of roughly around $11400 minimum

Today, i finally got the retro in my bank account. it was exactly what i figured.  
It was complicated as i had one DA, that got converted to a PA after the award. that is why there was the delay.

one thing though, myVac does not show any message message notifying me of the award, and there was no letter in the mail

i phone VAC, and she said there are serious issues with myvac and messages, strictly due to the high volume because of the retro.

there was a paper letter sent, so that should be in the mail anytime as well

How much should I be getting......

Post by rkman on Wed 12 Apr 2017, 19:27

I am trying to figure out what my lump sum payment should be, and when I called VAC the analyst told me to expect anywhere between 8 and 11 thousand. I received 15% in 2014 ($45191.29). When I subtract that from the 2017 total of 54000 I get a total of 8808.71. Is there more to the calculation or is this it. Thanks in advance.

My calculations calculate it at $6,399

You have to subtract from the 2014 new table, not 2017.

2014 at 15% new table = $51,590

2014 at 15% old table = $45,191

$51,590 - $45,191 = $6,399 retro.

I really don't understand how the analyst at VA told me between 8000 & 11000. She must have been totally confused. Where do I find the 2014 new table and how to they come up with those numbers.
