Have a question for you. I am at the PEB stage and have199 but I have not signed and returned it yet. The PEB rated me at 50% but soon after that the VA raised my percent to 100% for my main cause of medical retirement. Being in the nation guard and have served 21 years should I do the VARR to get the 100%?
Hello, I just became a member of this forum and am not sure exactly how to post a question. I have a VA Waiver question but the post is limiting me to 420 characters. Can someone explain how to post my question? Thanks.
I just got advise to appeal my separation on a 20% given to me from my MEB army. I just dont know what will be ok to do because I got 100% P&T thru the VA and my severance pay VA never recouped cuz by the rules or regulation in my case I didnt have to pay that money back. Now with that being said, should I fight for my medical retirement? and if is yes, what will the pros and cons? DO you know anything about this?
I'm reserve with 20.5 yrs of service with 4 deployments. Awaiting notice for FPEB. Findings from board only recognized 6y 5m for LOS recommend "Separation with Severance". DoD is 20%, should be higher. Injuries occurred in combat zone but not combat related. Really hard to swallow that I could lose my retirement after going through everything.
Can anyone provide some guidance on how to fight this at my FPEB?
