Incompetent VA Slashes D-Day Vet’s Benefits to $6 A Month!

A Navy veteran who braved German fire to land troops on the French coast on D-Day 70 years ago is taking a different kind of fire from his own Department of Veterans Affairs. Joseph Teson of Watervliet, N.Y., has had his VA benefits slashed to $6 a month after bureaucracy bean-counters discovered an overpayment in the $300 a month benefits he’d been receiving, according to an NBC affiliate in Albany. WNYT-TV reported Teson was notified of the overpayment last year when he received a VA letter stating a change in his “entitlement to compensation and pension benefits” had resulted in an overpayment to him of $3,090. And the federal government — that leviathan in our lives that’s bragging about only running a $500 billion deficit for 2014 — wants that three grand back. “Since you are currently receiving VA benefits, we plan to withhold those benefits until the amount you were overpaid is recouped,” the letter stated. So, thanks to the federal government’s own incompetence — it’s not like Teson went to the office and robbed the till himself – his VA benefits are down to $6 a month.
