VA's Recoupment of Emergency Checks Off to Rocky Start

We are hearing from some of our members that the VA’s recoupment of the $3,000 emergency checks got off to a rocky start this week. Just last night we received a number of complaints from veterans that although they set up repayment plans with the VA they were still charged the full $750/month. As one veteran wrote IAVA this morning, “Is there a possibility of getting my funds returned to me ASAP? My family and I are about to be evicted due to this ongoing situation.” We have reached out the VA and they are aware of the issue. It is unclear when and how it will be resolved. We will continue to monitor this situation and keep you all updated.
