Woke up to a deposit of $600 or so today. VEterans Affairs site shows nothing and Pension site doesn't say anything either. All my co-workers who collect pensions received the same. Anyone know what it comes from?

Sounds like it might be that federal $600 COVID relief check to people with disabilities. I believe VAC was going to automatically process those.

I got $300.00, and seem to recall an announcement a while back re a payment to people who were getting a pension, with an additional amount if they had been deemed disabled.

I got 600, same conundrum, thought it might have to do with my wife’s union settling, but sounds like it could be for having a tinnitus disability?
Edit: I only get ~$57 a month so that’s basically a year’s payment.

Supposedly everyone getting a VAC pension will receive.  Not sure how I feel about it.  (I received it too.)

Yep, I got one too but it was almost exactly the same amount as my my DND pay so it really threw me.

It was listed as FED/FED, the same as my DND pay - that's what confused me.

Exactly. I got the same.
As for who it comes from? It comes from taxpayers. As for department, is that really an issue? It's  free, kinda. There is no tax or accounting.

I bought a gun with it.

Anyone in receipt of veterans benefits, CPP disability or the disability tax credit was to automatically receive $600 to offset additional expenses from dealing with Covid. My spouse was pensioned 5% under the old charter and I am 102% under the new... and I qualified under all 3 categories. We both received a $600 one time payment process through veterans affairs
