VA officials have confirmed that earlier reports about a VA disability stimulus payment for veterans are false.  

The same VA officials suggested misinformation circulating the internet caused confusion for veterans between the 2024 Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) increase of 3.2% with a VA disability stimulus payment.

In a different article posted online, VA disability expert Brian Reese discusses the truth about the purported VA stimulus checks for veterans.

Summary of Key Points

  • Veterans will not receive a VA disability stimulus check in 2024.
  • There have been numerous fake news reports circulating on the internet of veterans receiving disability stimulus payments by various online news media outlets.
  • VA officials highlight the confusion likely arose from a false report between the 2024 3.2% COLA increase with a 2024 VA disability stimulus check.  

How Did This Confusion Happen?

The confusion is likely the result of false reporting by multiple media outlets that veterans were set to receive a disability stimulus check this year.

AARP recently reported that content farms using Artificial Intelligence (AI) as well as foreign influence are contributing to the rise of false reports regarding stimulus checks for both seniors and veterans.

VA Stimulus Payment: Real or Fake?

Confirmed to be fake by VA and IRS officials.

Neither the VA nor the IRS offers any kind stimulus payments to veterans or seniors.

Will Veterans Get a 2024 VA Disability Stimulus Check?

Despite what’s been reported online, veterans will not receive a VA disability stimulus check or booster payment in 2024.

According to VA officials, the VA does not issue any type of disability stimulus or booster payment to veterans.

Furthermore, the IRS confirmed that nobody, including veterans, is getting any form a federal stimulus payment in 2024.

2024 3.2% COLA Increase vs. 2024 VA Stimulus Payments

VA officials have indicated that misinformation circulating online may have led to confusion between the 3.2% Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) increase for 2024 and potential stimulus payments for VA disability.

It is true; however, that VA disability rates, VA pension rates, and special monthly compensation rates all increased by 3.2% in 2024.
