Well, Shi......Crap. My VA Disability Check Didn't Come Today. UPDATE
I am a 70% disabled Air Force veteran, and I receive a check in the mail every month for $1,344. I have been receiving these checks since July 2008. With one exception, my check has never been late.
It didn't arrive today.
I will be praying that it comes tomorrow. This is my means of paying the utilities and insurance. My husband works full time at $10/hr, but after taxes and child support, there is only around $250 left every week, and that pays for gas and food. Let's hope I'm not about to face a financial crisis.
And yes, this is my wake-up call to have my checks direct deposited. Believe me, I'm smacking myself for not having done this yet.
UPDATE: It still has not arrived, as of May 2nd. The mail has arrived today, with no check. I called the VA, and was told my payment was processed on May 1st (as usual), and I will have to wait 7 days before I can put a trace on it.
I don't know WTF is going on, and my husband and I are crunching numbers, trying to figure out what we are going to do. We are going to talk to my sister tonight to see if she can help with some of the bills.
"Roger that. Over."
