VA and IRS officials recently confirmed there is no VA extra payment coming to veterans in 2024.

News of a VA extra payment in the form of a stimulus check or booster payment was proven to be false by VA and IRS officials.

What’s the cause of this confusion?

It likely has to do with multiple online news outlets publishing articles related to a VA disability stimulus payment for 2024 and how the extra payment of up to $3,600 would help veterans and their families.

Unfortunately, those articles are false because neither the VA nor the IRS offer any type of extra payment to veterans.

Summary of Key Points

  • VA and IRS officials have confirmed there is no such thing as a VA extra payment, stimulus check, or booster payment for veterans.
  • Multiple online news media outlets have posted false reports of veterans getting up to $3,600 in extra compensation in 2024.
  • Disabled veterans with a VA rating of 10% or higher did see a 3.2% COLA increase on their 2024 VA disability compensation payments.

Are Veterans Set to Receive an Extra VA Payment?

No, contrary to what some online news outlets have reported, veterans will not receive extra VA disability pay in 2024 above and beyond the previously approved 2024 COLA increase.

However, disabled veterans with VA ratings of 10% or higher are receiving the 3.2% COLA increase to their monthly 2024 VA disability pay rates.

Why All This Confusion About Extra VA Disability Payments?

It all began earlier this year with a false report about a VA disability stimulus check for veterans.

A reporter likely confused the approved 2024 COLA increase of 3.2% with an extra VA stimulus payment in 2024.

VA and IRS officials have confirmed these reports are false and there is no extra VA disability payment, stimulus check, or booster payment in 2024.

AARP recently published an article blaming the rise of online content farms using AI to grab keywords to drive advertising revenue.

VA disability expert Brian Reese also wrote an article debunking the reports of a stimulus payment for veterans.

Can Veterans Receive Extra VA Disability Payments in 2024?

Yes, it’s possible for veterans to receive extra VA compensation payments by increasing their current VA rating or by qualifying for special monthly compensation.

Veterans can apply for VA disability benefits or a VA disability increase, simply by submitting a new VA claim online at along with medical records for each condition.
