VA Disability Compensation
Although the White House says that top officials from every federal agency are already working on the huge VA backlog, they have said that they may also consider a presidential commission to help address the problem. Members of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America delivered a 34,000 signature petition to the White House last month requesting a presidential commission to deal with this issue.
It seems like all the panicked talk about veterans losing their annual cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) this year was for naught.
Early this week the Senate took a voice vote and passed HR 4114: Veterans’ Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2012 which should take effect on Dec. 1 of this year. This bill was passed by the House back in early July, and put aside by the Senate for unknown reasons in September.
Q: As well as Army benefits I'd like to see benefits that veterans & retirees are offered. Some states have additional benefits & I'd like to see a rundown on those.
