    Officials explain recoupment policy for wounded troops

    I have searched all over this site and can't find anything explaining how my severance will be recouped. I read a regulation that says something to the effect that your initial rating from DOD will have to do with the rate of recoupment, but I can't make heads or tails. I was rated 10% by the...

    Delaware unemployment

    I just received my denial for unemployment benefits. They stated that the severance pay precludes opportunity for unemployment. Does anyone have any guidance on this? Does it matter that I have to pay that money back with VA money? I thought unemployment was automatic. Tim

    Condition incurred in a combat zone

    Good morning, I have a complex question. I was discharged w/10 percent severance pay for a herniated disc. The IFEB also reviewed sleep apnea w/CPAP, but did not rate that. Last week, I went for my VA physical. The doctor hurried me through and asked questions about my back and sleep issues...

    PTDY request

    Thank you all for your replies! I did, in fact, receive amended orders. They won't get 20 more days out of me, but they have further inhibited my ability to support my family. Oh well, no arguing would change anything. My CC is still angry that I was a Realtor while on Active Duty. I was stopped...

    PTDY request

    My Commander turned down my PTDY request, without warrant. She highlighted AFI 36-3003, Commanders cannot authorize terminal leave to "for cause" separatees required to separate at the earliest possible date... Can she do that? Do I have any recourse? In addition, the PEBLO initially told me...

    Sec 1646 Enhancement of Severance Pay

    The combat exemption confuses me... I keep being told that I will get the taxes held back from the IRS. Could you provide guidance on this? Thanks, Tim

    Got my results yesterday!

    I'm confused about your response. I was told that I would get the money back when I submit a request to the IRS, but your post says only if it was a combat related injury, originating in combat. Your help is greatly appreciated. I have calculated my severance and anticipated getting the taxes...

    Important question about child support

    Good evening, I have exes that take me to court every chance they get to get more child support. Can disability severance pay be used as income in the child support calculation. I don't see how it should, because it is more of a disability income, rather than disposable income. I can't work...

    Confused about severance pay

    I'm not sure about taxes, but from what I understand, you should get paid shortly...after you separate. My friend's took about 3 days. Tim

    Confused about severance pay

    I was told that the number of years used to calculate severance pay have been raised to a maximum of 19, rather than 12. In addition, I read on this site that when the VA substantiates my disability, I will get the withheld taxes back, but the article included below, says only for combat...

    Jason, I am worried that me ex-wife is going to try and get part of my severance pay. She has already asked for 8K to help her out. Also, we are going through property division right now and agreed to sign an agreement outside of court and submit it to the judge. Should I have an attorney...

    Divorce and severance pay

    I am going through the property division portion of my divorce, right now. Does anyone know how medical severance pay equates into the process? An attorney told me if I retired with 60% disability, my ex-wife wouldn't get any of the money, because it is considered non-disposable income. I am...

    Got my results yesterday!

    I appreciate your advice. Are you saying that I will automatically receive severance calculated at 14 years or is there a process I have to go through to get paid for more than 12? Also, I was offered severance for a herniated disc. I severely hurt my back in Baghdad and have medical records...

    Got my results yesterday!

    Well, Yesterday I received my results. 10% disability and severance pay. I signed on the spot and I was happy with the result. I am hoping to receive 60% from the VA. I would like to thank everyone for their help. This site truly helped me through this process! Now, I will have to figure...
