Document Number: 2019-07751
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-04-19
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) proposes to amend its adjudication regulations.

This proposed change would reduce the financial impact on veterans associated with receipt of VA disability compensation and active service pay by allowing VA to make necessary adjustments as close in time to the receipt of active service pay as possible. VA also proposes an amendment to clarify how VA adjudicates benefit adjustments based on receipt of active service pay for certain types of service.
