VA putting some Vets in debt by not paying housing allowances

Yet another FU to Vets.

"You can count on us to serve, but we cant count on the VA to make a deadline, one veteran said.

The problem is it went to the lowest Bidder, who never worked on the system the V.A. has, or help make the program in the first place. This happens all the time with the V.A


The V.A. will install a new program which is suppose to work with other system. what a joke.

The VA said the problem currently stems from an IT problem caused by changes to the law when President Donald Trump signed the Forever GI Act last year. New standards for calculating housing stipends were to be implemented on August 1, but it caused “severe critical errors” during testing that “resulted in incorrect payments,” VA spokesman Terrence Hayes said
