VA Compensation Back Pay: When Can I Expect My Large VA Retro Payment?
If you’re entitled to VA compensation back pay, you can expect to receive at least one large VA retro payment. Depending on the situation, this payment might be split into smaller payments that are typically deposited directly in your bank account. VA compensation back pay is usually paid out when your VA disability claim has been approved and you’ve received an official rating decision (which includes the effective date of your award)
When you receive VA compensation back pay, it will be based on the amount of VA disability compensation that you’re entitled to receive for each month between your effective date of award and when VA finally approved your claim. VA retro payments are tax-free!
It is not uncommon for VA retro payments to be delayed, but VA must process them within 6 months after they approve your claim. If VA hasn’t paid out your large VA retro payment within this timeframe, contact them directly with any questions or concerns about the status of your payment.
