Orlando, FL, January 02, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Media personality and Veterans Advocate Frank Torres is pushing the Department Of Financing and Accounting Services to fix difficulties associated with it's Retroactive Stop Loss Program. The Retroactive Stop Loss Program was once again recently halted due to new legislation which adopts new criteria to those soldiers who are eligible to receive benefits.
The program, which pays soldiers $500 per month for each month, they were involuntarily extended, has experienced severe software problems which has caused extended delays in payment and now faces more difficulties under a recently passed defense appropriations act. The new restrictions identified in the act, will once again halt payment to allow DFAS personnel to review all of the submitted claims.
Torres, who is known for his aggressive approach and his fiery demeanor, has been working with lawmakers in his region to urge DFAS to find a resolution to the problem. “Are you serious? There’s another delay?" Torres asks, he would go on to add "I find it hard to believe that DFAS did not see this piece of legislation coming. We owe it to our Vets to offer them timely delivery of the benefits we’ve promised them. Problems like these need to be identified earlier and advisories need to be sent out. You don’t need a crystal ball or satellite images from space to see this coming. Come on man!”
It is unknown how long the temporary suspension will last. DFAS say it will work to resolve the problem quickly.
