Hi Keebs. I was told my eligibility was confirmed and they are compiling all of my PDBR records and military records and that they will send me a notification letter and then the PDBR will make a recommendation. So does the PDBR have the final say so?
Hi Stewy, first of all, much luck to you! It is a looooong process so be patient and just forget about it for at least the next year! And to answer your question, no, the branch has the final say so not the the PDBR. But the branches take the recommendation of the board more than 90% of the time.

You aren't eligible for the PDBR because you hVe to be discharged between 2001 and 2009. You were discharged too late unfortunately. You can look into the BCMR and ARBA and see if those might be an option for you!

I received my backpay today!
Ive read some things saying they will only back pay you up to 6 years? do you know if thats correct? Ive been discharged for 12 years now. 12 years of retirement backpay would be a huge chunk of change. I am also 100% rated by the VA though so Im still confused at how all that will work out.

They back pay you back to your retirement date. As far as back pay, any back pay you would be due would be subtracted from the VA pay you received for the same time frame.

If you do receive retirement it will not affect your VA rating or your VA pay.

this is whast i was referring to on receiving va and army retirement any info would be greatly appreciated.

What Happens When You Are Eligible to Receive Retirement Pay & Disability Compensation?
To best answer this question, we need to examine your disability rating. If you have a combined disability rating of 50% or greater, you should be eligible to receive Concurrent Retirement Disability Pay (CRDP). If you receive CRDP, you will receive your full military retirement pay along with your full VA disability compensation. There will be no reduction to your military retirement pay.

If you receive CRDP, you will receive your full military retirement pay along with your full VA disability compensation. There will be no reduction to your military retirement pay.
From the little info available, I suspect you are not eligible for CRDP.

You must be eligible for retired pay to qualify for CRDP. If you were placed on a disability retirement, but would be eligible for military retired pay in the absence of the disability, you may be entitled to receive CRDP.

Under these rules, you may be entitled to CRDP if…
  • you are a regular retiree with a VA disability rating of 50 percent or greater.
  • you are a reserve retiree with 20 qualifying years of service, who has a VA disability rating of 50 percent or greater and who has reached retirement age. (In most cases the retirement age for reservists is 60, but certain reserve retirees may be eligible before they turn 60. If you are a member of the Ready Reserve, your retirement age can be reduced below age 60 by three months for each 90 days of active service you have performed during a fiscal year.)
  • you are retired under Temporary Early Retirement Act (TERA) and have a VA disability rating of 50 percent or greater.
  • you are a disability retiree who earned entitlement to retired pay under any provision of law other than solely by disability [such as TERA or Reserve or Regular retirement], and you have a VA disability rating of 50 percent or greater. You might become eligible for CRDP at the time you would have become eligible for retired pay.

Let me put it this way:

If you do not qualify for
—regular retirement
or
—TERA retirement
or
—reserve/NG retirement, including age requirement

Then, you do not qualify for CRDP per current law. The info you provided shows you do not qualify.
