What great news about the COLA increase! This will help so many veterans and their families with the rising costs they have faced in the past 2 years!!
As a point of clarification, since this increase is effective December 1, 2011, when will recipients actually receive the increase? Is in the January 1, 2012 payment since VA payments "lag" by one month?
