    Va claim done but confused.

    Unless your ratings are combat related or you retired in addition to the VA ratings, you are witnessing the OFFSET; Meaning your total entitlement is 3,017.60 between BOTH the retirement AND VA; Unless part of it is combat related or you retired through the 20 year mark; 1309.6 + 1,708.80 =...

    VA Issues Statement of Case, Refuses BackPay. Thoughts?

    Jason, I was not reservist, I was active duty; However, reading through your dialogue I must say that the case was transferred from Rhode Island RO to Muskogee RO to do this. I know it was probably a mistake, but frustrating mistake to say the least. I have filed an NOD to that affect, another...

    Terminal Leave?

    It all comes down to that NLT of 90 days; If your PTDY + your leave exceeds the NLT date, then yes, you will have to sell some leave. Otherwise you can combine the 20 days and your leave to take terminal. This is what i did. I only sold back about 1.5 days of leave.

    VASRD Schedule of ratings—musculoskeletal system Acute, Subacute, or Chronic Diseases

    The VA uses "VA Math"; It is based off of the remaining ability versus the added disabilities; The best way I have heard it explained was by TSgt Twitch; Think of it like a football field, You start at one end at 0% disabled. 50% disabled moves you to the 50 yard line (50% of the remaining...

    retirement compensation?

    Unfortunately the best thing you can do is just wait; The DOD percentage (the percentage that gets you the retiree card at 30%) is only for conditions deemed as contributing to making you unfit for service. That is of course if they find you unfit. AKA, just because you claimed the other items...

    Spinal Cord Damage after ACDF

    You are doing the best thing right now in ensuring that everything is documented. As a recipient of a massive fusion myself, I can tell you that the nerve symptoms change daily. The fact that the numbness is receding it a sign that healing is still taking place. However, the spinal cord...
