It sucks but you're not getting the difference between 2015 and the new max. It is being adjusted backwards by cost of living adjustments per year, so there is where your "$4900" went

I spoke to VAC and they said that they are mailing out the letters in batches of approximately 2500 letters per day beginning today and that payments will go out by end of April.

Also be sure you have selected "paperless" communication on My VAC Account or you will get a letter in the mail as opposed to an electronic letter.

That's my understanding too Vet1234 but I thought I would pass the information along anyway.

Disability Award Retro Letters

We all are hoping the same thing Vet1234! This was promised a long time ago and the Feds will always be suspect in my mind for waiting to fulfil this obligation.

I'm no lawyer or even math wiz. But does anyone think this short change of the way they did there adjustment will go to a legal case? I'm sure someone sharper is onto it.

I got a payment for 2009 for 10% at 25237, the retro was only 233 dollars, when I did the math it was supposed to be around 6600. Is there something I'm missing here?

Sorry to hear that Ireland, something isn't right.

And the cracks in this system are beginning to show.

File an immediate appeal Ireland!

In 2009 the maximum was $267,364.94, so 10% should have netted you $26,736.49. The 2009 max was increased to $318,375.79, so 10% would become $31,837.58. The difference is $5101.09, that is what you should've received.

I would definitely dispute what they state you will be getting.

I sent them an email today in ref to this, the only thing I could think of was that this was an appeal fr a claim in 2007 that went to the board that I won, original claim was for 1430 dollars in 2007 I redressed it and in 2009 was given the 25243, Maybe they did make a mistake, it will be interesting to see what they have to say.

I have read all the posts and I'm still confused as to how much I should have received. Can someone explain this to me please?

Max amount in 2015 was 306,698.21. I got %50 disability at $153,349.11. What should I have received for the top up amount? My letter says $21,714.96, but I think it's wrong.
I feel at %50 I should have received 26,650.90. Can anyone explain how the top up is to work and if I should file an appeal and to where to appeal, please?

The new max for 2015 is $350,128.13, so 50% of that is $175,064.065. Since you've already received $153,349.11, you'll get the difference which is $21,714.96

Thanks for the response, I was confused because VAC news said the max was to be $360,000
Where can I find the info that your giving me and the info into how things are calculated. Thank You for the help, much appreciated.
