In August, Bob Brown states that he received his regular January VA pension check
of $290. However, during the latter part of January, he received another $290 VA check
along with a letter explaining that his January check had been delayed due to a computer
error. Mr. Brown explains that he knew the second check was a duplicate and says he
had not been able to return it sooner due to illness. The CR verifies the return of
the $290 check in July as well as Mr. Brown's illness. The CR then makes a determination
concerning Mr. Brown's income and records it in the file.
