VA Stimulus Check On The Way

The 2009 stimulus package signed by president Obama contains quite a few financial stimulus for many different parts of the population.ย  Infrastructure spending, tax cuts make up most of the bill but one of the key aspects to the package is a special cash payment.ย  This wonโ€™t be like the general stimulus check of last year but will be given to select groups such as retired veterans on disability.

$250 stimulus check in 2009

A one time payment of $250 will be paid out in 2009 for people in the following groups:

  • People currently receiving Social Security.
  • State government retirees not eligible for Social Security.
  • Veterans receiving pensions from the Department of Veteran Affairs.
  • People receiving SSI payments. Supplemental Security Income payments are for people who have little to no income and is intended to meet the basic needs for food, clothing and shelter.

When will I get my stimulus check?

Treasury is supposed to start sending out these checks as soon as possible.ย  This site will be updated when more information becomes available.

I was wondering when I would recieve my $ 250.00 stimulus check for being a disabled vet?

I found it at some goverment oversite website, but VA wasn’t going to start releasing their money until June 9th … so between now and the end of the month we should get it

This is ridiculous..I know that it is only $250 and it isn’t going to make a HUGE difference to anyone but it would be nice to know a more solid date for budgeting purposes ๐Ÿ™‚ (Graduations, weddings, birthdays, etc)I figured it would come with the June 2nd payment but no luck. The VA site and automated phone system both say “by the end of June” pretty vague. I have heard of people that recieved letters from the VA in regards to getting the check but still with no solid date. We have yet to recieve a letter. The bill states payments are to be made WITHIN 120 days of the bill being signed. Which would put us at June 16th but surely there are loop holes to that. It’s free money so I guess we all just have to wait and be patient. ๐Ÿ™‚

Sarah nothing is EVER free. You cannot complain about money only promised to you by an individual especially if that individual is the US Govt. I was actually shocked I got a letter. Granted $250.00 does doodley squat but it better than having nothing. I am glad to be included. To me a real stimulus is helping the sub-prime people stay in their homes so there isn’t all these abandoned and foreclosed on homes. I’d rather have them restructuring the loan so they can pay then have them swelling up the renters market for slumlords. Oh well I forgot to put my name on the ballet. LOL.

i am a partially disabled Vet. I called about my $250 check the other day. The lady said i would receive it before 07 July 09… But couldnt tell me what date it would be mailed ( i thought they had a schulele of mailing dates according to last 2 digits of SSAN but guess i am wrong on that. oh well i will be happy enough to get it Period… good luck all.

Update: Well I found out today that we won’t be getting the $250 stimulus at all. My husband became ELIGIBLE in January for benefits but was paid retroactive in March so he didn’t qualify. Only people in “actual receipt” of compensation Nov-Jan will be getting it. The bill says
..” Veterans who were eligible for benefits between November 2008 and January of 2009..” I guess our definiton of eligibility is different. know the $250 isn’t a life changing amount of money but it was a little something extra to look forward to. I guess this is a good reason to not count our chickens before they hatch. ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, we are still truly blessed with the compensation he is receiving even if he had to go through hell and get shot to get it. On to the next rant..

I called va on june 15,2009 I was. Told checks would be sent out on june 15 but some still may not get them until july 10th as of yet I haven’t receives a letter .every person tells a different story fron va I’ll believe it when I see it

I’ve called the V.A. Twice , All I get is before the end of JUNE ’09. WAY past the 120 day mark. What Gives?

my letter says they will be mailed in june and if we don’t get it by July 10th to contact the va. i am just happy to be getting it.

My letter said same thing. We should get it by end of June we dont’ get it by July 10th call them.

I did get two letters and the last one said if I had not gotten my $250 by July 10th to call the VA. The check will be paid the same way you get your monthly payment. Direct Deposit or paper check. So I keep checking the account each day hoping it will show up

All the letters seem to say we will get our $250.00 but not to contact the VA until after July 10th. So I guess we will have to wait until that date before we can ask any questions. I hope everyone get theirs by then.

Just waiting like everyone else, did receive the letter. Have direct deposit, but going to 2 different banks and 3 seperate accounts, wonder which it might be going to. Well guess we’ll see. Have a great day.

I think it is a shame that our government sought to give overweight,lazy, disease of the week scamsters receiving SSDI their stimulus money before veterans in need. They let the VA decide when we get it. The same VA that can’t clean their equipment, give vets diseases like HIV, claim that Gulf War syndrome is a lie, and does their best to tell most vets that their 100% disabilities that prevent them from working and enjoying a high quality of life are NOT service-connected, but here’s your $985 a month check so you can live in poverty. The VA WILL find a way not to give vets this stimulus and if they can’t, they will hold on to it…probably to earn interest…until the very last moment…God Bless America

I can’t Beleive that President Obama would let the Disabled Veterans of this country ,continue to suffer and have to wait for our so called stimluis package.Its a slap in the face to all Men and Women who have served their Country honerably,and would do so again if called upon again to do so.So much for promises; During our time of need,Concerned Veteran. GOD BLESS AMERCIA HOOAH!

I just checked my checking account and I haven’t gotten my
check yet.
I served my country and worked in a building with asbestos and
live with lung cancer and heart problems.
I never made my Commander wait for me to do my work but they
make us wait for our money that they know we need as being 100%
disabled you don’t get much to live on .
Will be glad to get it hopefully soon.
God Bless .

Hey Ladies and gents as of this morning my check has been deposited into my account! 6/19/09

If u received your $250, are you service-connected, non-service disability pension, or seniors?

Has anyone gotten their check mailed to them yet? I am service connected disability and I have not gotten anything except a letter from VA saying I am supposed to get it. I get my monthly checks mailed to me.

vetstatus and tom….just curious….since you got your direct deposits today, and become some have been told the distribution will be in stages based on last 2 digits of SSN, would you be so kind as to let us know what yours are? Better yet……mine is “27”. Does that sound like it would be in the same range as yours?

Checked my Direct Deposit, nothing today. My last 2 are 41. Are they processing it by number? Or just giving it out in their own sweet time?

I haven’t received mine yet, but have received the letter and do receive direct deposit.

My last two are: 94

My husband is 20% disabled, service connected disablity, will he receive the stimulus payment?

My last two are “18.” I received the letter as well even though I receive a non-service conneted disability…The VA said I was eligible. I have direct deposit and still no funds

Seems to me that vetstatus and Tom are the only ones to get it…are ya’ll sure they’re not just VA plants??? Conspiracy theorists unite!!!….just kidding

My last two are 26 nothing yet. I also have several Disabled vets on my postal route and not one has received their check yet

Sara c. I need the phone no. for v.a.. Could you please post it for all of us. Thanks

I am a Service Connected Disabled Vet.
I received my letter last month saying I am eligible, but have yet to receive a payment. I have direct deposit as well. (my last two are 28).

i am service connected disabled and my last two are 14 so if they are going by last two 27 shouldn’t be far off.

I called the VA after I posted my last message they said the dept of treasury will start issuing them this Monday but they didn’t know how they were doing it (by last 2 of ss # or by birthday)

I received the letter but have not received my direct deposit. My last two is 00.

Just nice to know that when dealing with the VA or government red tape…I am not alone…thanks 2 you all 4 the great posts…united we could change the world

I wanted to let everyone know that I am a Service Connected Veteran, last 2 digits of my social are 11, and that I received my $250 today (19 June 09) by direct deposit. I hope this helps eveyone else kind of estimate when they will get theirs. Have a wonderful day and God Bless all.

Hey guys,
I am 40% SC and VR&E and haven’t received mine by direct deposit. My last two are 41. They probably aren’t doing the disbursment by SS #, judging by the post here. Anyway, good luck and keep us posted!

My last two ss#’s are “18” and I have direct deposit and receive a NON-SERVICE connected va disability pension and I received my $250 when I checked my account this a.m. (Saturday, June 20) Good luck 2 all and check your acoounts!!

Doesnt appear to be the last two of social but I did read that they could be doing it by day of birth. would be interested if the people who received theres would post day of birth.
