Veterans Sound Off On VA Bonuses Paid Out Despite Backlog ‘Slip Up’

196

VA bonuses

Many veterans sounded off yesterday over a leaked email from Diana Rubens to staff lauding her award of VA bonuses to employees despite a backlog “slip up.”

Prior to discussing last month’s disability backlog “slip up,” Rubens congratulated bonus recipients, “you should have seen that monetary thank you in last week’s check.” She promised to continue doling out bonuses throughout the year to recognize “contributions.”

READ: Rubens Email On Bonuses And Disability Backlog

Veterans were fired up by the email, not just because it seems absurd for Rubens to mention bonuses in the same email acknowledging a slip up causing the backlog to increase, but also because Philadelphia VA is one of the most scandal-plagued VA regional offices in the country.

Rubens was one of the SES employees linked to a scandal, demoted, but then reinstated after VA was unable to hold her accountable for violating its ethics laws. She also created a remote job for her female lover so she would move with her to Philadelphia after she relocated her subordinate who used to run Philadelphia VA.

During congressional investigations into Rubens’ apparent fraud, she reportedly walked around Philadelphia VA laughing and telling her subordinates to “enjoy” the show.

Here are a few excerpts from regular readers about the Philadelphia VA bonuses:

[Please note these are generally unedited excerpts and do contain certain typos]

Veteran 1 – Lem

Ben, “· Average days to complete a Veteran’s claim is 119.4 days – a 228.6-day reduction from 348-day peak in Sept. 2013”

PAs doing C&P and the same deciding claims with automatic denials. Another bonus scheme? Needs to be investigated.

Veteran 2 – Namnibor

Excellence In Eternal Ignorance = Our VA pig-rats screwing over Veterans for nonperformance bonuses. These pig-rats would use global warming as an excuse for their incompetence if given the chance, begging for a billion for more A/C units so they can be all comfy while stamping DENY on claim files.

By the way, I thought the rats were NOT supposed to be receiving performance bonuses? Last year as well but they received them in 2015 as well and we Veterans received a WHOPPING 0.03% Cost Of Living Adjustment (same for SSA) this year, which with my 100% VA Comp., added a whopping $9. a month to my income, while these rats at the VA receive significant bonuses even if they screw-up. How the f^ck is that an even playing field?

Veteran 3 – Crazy Elf

Quote; “…as you should have seen that monetary thank you in last week’s check.”
A “Bonus” for what? As was said, they gotta spend the money, or lose it on next year’s allocation!
“Bullshit” is all it is!

P.S.
Ruben’s should be sitting in a jail cell, not the head of a RO!

Veteran 4 – OLDMARINE

to ensure your success and exceptional service to our Veterans.what BULLSHIT. they must love blowing smoke up each others ASSES, its a feel good thing of theirs. I went to a town hall meeting here in ASHEVILLE NORTH CAROLINA VA and the hospital director kept jumping up and down how we where number 2 in the whole system, i wonder who voted. damn sure wasn’t the vets. then some old timer gets up to complain he’s had a head ache for the last 5 years then take his pain med’s away and wont do any thing else about it. I think they need to lay off the crack pipe for awhile ……they sure sound upbeat in their emails must be the birthday parties and the bonus money, lets party like its 1999 LOL

Veteran 5 – 91Veteran

Interesting to see her highlight the incentive or bonus pay. I seriously doubt they have any kind of checks for accuracy causing a reduction in any incentive or bonus pay. I suspect the bonus is paid well before anyone noticed that claim making a 3rd or 4th trip through the process. 

I highly doubt any VA employee is rated at less than fully successful, unless they are a good employee being targeted for retaliation and firing.

I also highly doubt any VA rating official would incur the wrath of the AFGE and Little Cox by rating a dues payer at a rating in which said dues payer would not receive a bonus.

I suspect if a VA employee can show up and fog a mirror they are rated as fully successful.

I do find it interesting an approving official has the authority to change a rating if they disagree with how an employee was rated by their supervisor. It smacks of micromanagement and favoritism.

…and a dictator keeping his little subjects in line.

Veteran 6 – Jo3n

I find it difficult to be reading about Reubens, again. How in the hell is the VA supposed to get better with the same thieves running the place? A birthday bonus? Nothing is changing… Senator Isaacson sent my, “choice card” request to the Alabama Senator Shelby. He sent me a release of information form. Not sure this is going to work. Timely? Are you kidding? I wish Trump would follow up on his words. There is nothing timely with the VA. They just change the dates. I’m getting tired.

@Ex va – Yes, there was a one in our area, a large facility, and was very well respected. I believe it was owned or substantially subsidized by the Catholic Church. Over the years, it was noticeable that there were changes taking place. Even the grounds around the building were negatively effected. And, then it closed the doors. Later, the largest private hospital bought the facility, and created another branch related to their brand of medical treatment facilities.

Namnibor, what’s shocking about these snowflakes is their belief that any action, Executive Order, Executive Action or any other term for it taken by Obama carries the full weight of law like it was passed by Congress, or the full weight of a Constitutional amendment. If you look at how many of them are reacting to Trump rescinding an Obama EO like on immigration or DACA or other unconstitutional acts Obama did, they are going nuts as if Trump is… Read more »

@Namnibor – Sorry to hear about your “friend ?????” In reality, your friend is willing to give up an actual personal relationship over a relationship that doesn’t exist. Strange thinking. This individual is either totally distorted or don’t value your friendship. Take that permanent marker and blot out his name from your address and phone book. And, the libertards know that this type of behavior is happening all over in our country. They are playing on the division factor. In… Read more »

@ANutterVet– That ‘friend’ has already been scrubbed and blocked as a personal security risk and liability to me. I just have never in my life seen such RABID behavior this far out after an election. According to him, the “snowflakes” are gearing-up for protest season on steroids as it gets nicer weather. Be careful out there. Lawlessness is definitely a probability with these snowflakes.

Soros must mix-up some wicked-ass addicting Kool-Aid.

@Namnibor, @Crazy elf, @Ex va- Hey, I’m wondering how much the MSM [Main Stream Media] is suppressing the reporting of people getting violent with others over President Trump’s victory and current actions? The other week, I had a run in with a Veteran in a waiting area at my local VA. I was watching a CNN new report, and turned to my wife and said, “dam libertards.” This Veteran thought that I called him a libertard. He came right out… Read more »

@ANutterVet: First, I am sorry you had an altercation with another vet, It seems as if this is happening more and more these days. Second, your right, all is would take is a few libtard government officials, to condemn the actions taking place around the country. Not a word is said, Even their so-called, great leader himself,(Former President Obama), could take to the air and condemn all of it. Not a word is said. Your right again about people not… Read more »

@namnibor: you called it perfectly. “I just have never in my life seen such RABID behavior this far out after an election.” I can’t even explain to my own son, the damage libtards have done to this country. If I touch on the subject…….he hurries out the door. He is 28 and should know better. He is not part of the snowflake generation, but dates a liberal. The snowflake generation should really be renamed to the zombie apocalypse generation. I… Read more »

@ ANutterVet, everyone can think what they want and everyone has an opinion, but what gets me is people just looking to be offended. They have chips on their shoulders saying “what are you calling me?” When you were not even talking to them you were talking to your wife. This society is turning bad and everyone is so angry? Because they don’t get their own way, well welcome to the real world. I rarely got my way about anything.… Read more »

namnibor, I read where the “snowflakes” are amassing for “May Day, 2017”! “Rumor” has it 3 million retards are heading to Washington DC. Can you imagine that? Just think what our nation’s capital will look like after 3 million idiots get done throwing their trash all over the streets. Just as all those so-called “respectful women” did a short time ago! They left tons of garbage all over the capital. If they have no respect for themselves, why should we… Read more »

Crazy Elf, Same with the pipeline protesters in ND. Backed by Soros and Wesley Clark’s spawn, junior, and a bunch of Hollyweird leftists. Who are no longer to be found now that the mess needs to be cleaned up. There have been pictures all over some news sites and all over FB about the many tons of trash, abandoned vehicles, human waste, etc., left behind that will take many weeks to clean up, and from the pictures of the rising… Read more »

Imagine the logistics in even trying to get one cent out of the Black Lives Matters protestors? Probably easier to make a new service connected claim with the VA because with BLM you really do not have an official head of the snake to go after, and I highly doubt BLM even files any sort of tax or tax exemption paperwork, and lest we forget than many of the BLM do not work, with many on the Public Dime. I… Read more »

Both BLM and the pipeline protesters had money from Soros funneled through non profits.
Wesley Clark junior had some kind of fundraising operation going on to fund travel to get up there.

The funding source is who they should go after. If it’s a non profit, then their status should be revoked for funding lawlessness and rioting.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I was under strong impression they ran several “Go Fund Me” campaigns, so have no idea just how they would even go after the funding sources when you even have the likes of the NAACP in the mix. The snowflakes would scream they were being “oppressed upon” and ensure even more rioting…a bit like when you go to the city zoo and if one animal area gets riled-up and vocal, the other animals… Read more »

I hear ya Nam. I suspect it may be difficult to go after a Gofundme donor, but that would depend on how the legislation is written, and if it allows going after those listed as organizers.

91Veteran, Now you’ve brought the IRS into it. Here’s a video of just how corrupt that agency has become. From: ‘Amicus Humani Generis’s Dated: 19 Feb. 2017. (3:08 min. long) Titled; “”You Spent $4,300,000 on A Hotel Conference” Jason Chaffetz Goes Berserk On IRS Official!” The “second in command of the IRS” was caught, red handed, by the committee telling lies to the American people. It was in 2010 this occurred. Yet, he wasn’t brought before Congress until 2015 or… Read more »
