As A Disabled Veteran, When Will I Get My $250 Payment?

The $250 stimulus payments for service-connected veterans started in June 2009 and all disabled veterans were made eligible for this automatic payment. The authorization of the payments was signed in February and the VA suggested that all payments should be received within 120 days, so some disabled veterans may not receive their $250 stimulus payment until June. If you still haven’t received the payment after this date, then it is worth trying to follow it up with the VA.

The payments are made through the VA payment system rather than the Treasury so veterans do not need to file out a tax return to receive the money. If you are having problems receiving your $250 stimulus payment you can contact the VA on 1-800-827-1000 and press ‘0’ to speak to a live representative - a much quicker way to solve your problem directly. It is best not to contact them until after the 120 days as there is still a chance you could receive your check within the allocated deadline. Contacting them before this date will most likely result in the VA asking you to wait until the deadline has passed.

You can also look for information on the Disabled American Veterans website (www.dav.org/).  Here you can find out what payments you are entitled to, depending on your eligibility, and when you can expect to receive them. There are so many payments to be made by the VA that it is expected that there will be some delay. Contacting the VA may not speed up the delivery of your money, but making them aware that your payment is delayed, particularly if it is an extreme delay, may benefit the VA with organising any future payments and make them aware that the payment system hasn’t been 100% successful this time - it is likely that you are not the only one who hasn’t received their $250.

I wrote to the va office and they replied that I should expect the money starting May 20 to 25. If it does not come wait until at least June 4 to complain. I am already complaining. Why so long to get it.
