My job consists of me handling finances for people who receive checks from Social Security such as SSI, SSDI, or just SS. The majority of my clients are either mentally ill or mentally retarded and can not responsibly handle there finances on there own. I have a client who enlisted in the army in 1988 and made it 4 weeks through boot camp, then had to drop out because of his mental instability. There's documentation showing that he was "sick" since he was a child but the army is insisting that they made him "sick." For there mistake now they are awarding him $190,000... yes that is no typo.

He never served our country once and the military for some reason won't look at the documents that we have from physician's telling of his mental illness from the age of 10. Here our county is trying to reduce the pay of our soldiers that have served for years yet 4 weeks can get you that amount of money???

I wish it was sir. It's back pay for non payments since 1988. He was supposed to be receiving about $700 a month since then, so for every month they didn't pay him they're giving him that lump sum and then will continue to give $700 a month and that's in addition to the SS he's receiving.

This infuriates me. My husband served in the US Army 22 years, saw combat on several occasions, and when he retired he was given $10k lump sum and 80% retirement for the remainder of his life for his BRAIN injury that was directly correlated to his time in service. I cannot wrap my head around how this can be real.

4 wks= 190k
1144 wks= 10k

Hmmm no wonder our budget in the US doesnt balance. The PTB obviously cannot do math.

Hm that is truly bizarre tbh....so was it $19,000 or $190,000 ? soz just being pernickity lol

maybe they gave him that so him and/or his family and/or friends couldnt make a big deal out of it.....
you know like a umm, hang on i forget the phrase now, but maybe he got given the money so he (or whoever was representing him) wouldnt ruffle any feathers...if you get my drift....

hope that makes sense !

Who is "They" when you say "they are awarding him $190,00..."

I thought the Veterans Administration would have handled this type of payout not "SSI, SSDI, or SS"

If they're claiming responsibility there is a reason for it, and they know exactly why they are doing such.

Right on the money with your anwser, I think it is very possible that the OP doesnt not know the truth of the reason he is being awarded this money.

I believe the the OP knows the story that the Vet told him/her, but that doesn't make it the true story. The vet maybe hiding/holding back information, who knows why. But in my 12 years of military experience the VA does not hand out money before it does very through research.

I mean no disrespect at all, but this man is not a vet in any way. Also I can tell you for fact he's holding no information back. If you knew personally you would know what I meant. As far as the VA just handing out money... again we have proof they didnt do what they're saying they did. It was already there when he entered boot camp, but they would not listen.
