    Military is recommending a TDRL, Office of Airman's Council recommends I appeal it to change it to Permanent Retirement

    No, your VA rating, while evidence that the Social Security Administration should consider, is not dispositive for a Social Security disability award. If you are unable to engage in a substantial gainful activity (which is the SSA standard), then you can get Social Security compensation. See...

    Age 60 medical extension waiver

    Disability processing takes precedence over all non-misconduct administrative separations. If you are already in the IDES/LDES process, there is no waiver needed. Are you being told that you are being separated on the basis of age? Are you already referred to and being processed for a MEB?

    Army Reserve, what are my entitlements?

    Incapacitated child

    Not enough information to answer. Under what benefit? DoD, VA? On what basis are you thinking there might be benefits and what benefits are you seeking? The question and topic is too broad to be of much help in attempting to answer the question.

    Update on Army policy on TDRL placement

    Sformo, Not sure what you are looking for in the way of a "review." If you want, we can take this offline or discuss via email. My quick look at your site left me wondering what the site is about and what "services" or goal your site or organization provides. Seems that the gist is helping...

    Anyone done the Legacy DES process?

    Every case and situation is different. However, my general view is that absent really compelling circumstances, it is almost always better to go through IDES vice Legacy process.

    Oconus treatment Japan

    @USNAS , Sorry to hear of your problems. Here are my thoughts: Normally, sure, you can refuse treatment. However, this may well come back to "bite you," and having that notation in your records is probably not a good thing. You can request anything, but, no reason to think you have anything...

    My Timeline

    The language and finding would be in the VA decision letter or notification of benefits. If it states that you have Chapter 35 benefits, then you are P&T. If it states something like, "...the VA will conduct a re-evaluation in the future," then you are not P&T.

    VA Ratings

    In most cases, getting the ID card should be at the same time you are enrolled in DEERS for the health insurance options. It is not automatic, but, normally, all of the issues and enrollment options should be accomplished. Retirement services would normally be part of the outprocessing process...
