    100% P&T VA (SC)(CR) - Applied for PDBR

    I think your PEBLO may be a bit off base on this one. You cannot collect medical retirement and VA C&P at the same time (known as concurrent payment). 100% C&P award is approximately $3000-3300 per month depending on your marital status and dependents. DoD 40% is typically 40% of your...

    How much of VA disability monthly check will be recouped?

    There are many reasons why the VA would recoup money. The call center employees probably did not have a clue what specific reason your were talking about.

    Deploy or out

    Technically recruiters are considered to be deployed on mission every single day of their career. It would be a major distraction to the recruiting effort if medical appointments were tossed into the mix.

    How much of VA disability monthly check will be recouped?

    If your severance is rated at 10% then $136.24 per month will be recouped. If the injury occurred in a combat zone then there is no recoupment.

    Deploy or out

    As I read this, it appears to be written with a specific bias that may not be completely honest. The article focuses on cutting those who are unable to deploy overseas, however it does not focus on any of the needs we have in protecting our homeland. We are having issues with cyber breaches...

    100% P&T VA (SC)(CR) - Applied for PDBR

    The SSDI decision may assist you in pulling some weight. IMO the TBI is going to be the nail in the coffin, since in 2009 they were not screening service members for TBI properly. Out of curiosity, what were the unfitting condition(s) that added up to 60% for your TDRL?

    found fit for duty - now contesting - help?

    That is perfectly fine. All they are going to do is check a box on a form requesting a FPEB. For what the attorney has to do, it will not take to much time.

    Got my letter today. Now what?

    Correct, if you are at 0% then there is no recoupment. If you are rated 10%, they recoup $136.24 per month, 20% $269.30 per month.

    found fit for duty - now contesting - help?

    Please do not let the finding stress your family out to much. Request the formal board and communicate to the PEB attorney assigned that you would like a unfit finding. They will do their best to summarize your husbands medical condition and why it does not meet retention standards.

    Yes, you will get 2.5 x your base pay times the years you have served. If you have served less than three years, you are given three years, if you have served less than three years and your injuries occurred in a combat zone, you are given six years. Severance is typically recouped from the...

    Lumbar ROM %?

    No, anti-pyramiding rules would prohibit two ratings. The only way to add to the rating for your back is if you have a neurological condition(s) from spinal cord related issues.

    Did you actually get a 1099C for the discharge of the debt?

    Please help

    In this situation, the decision is going to be made of off the medical evidence that is presented. I would not worry so much about the distance between you and the lawyer, but rather what evidence the lawyer can present to the board, that shows your condition(s) have not improved during your...
