    Can orders break a apartment contract?

    Except where, as in Virginia, the state is permitted to work within the bounds of the federal law. Virginia law does not say that a military tenant cannot break their lease, it merely states there are conditions on the termination that do not infringe upon a Servicemember's federal rights. See...

    Can orders break a apartment contract?

    Can orders break a apartment contract?

    The Servicemember's Civil Relief Act allows military tenants to break their leases when their military orders require them to move, e.g. to a new duty station. However, state laws can and do impact that ability. For example, if you live in Norfolk, you couldn't break your lease if you were...

    Anyone have any info on Concurrent Receipt for us less than 20 years folks?

    nwlivewire: the orders need to be properly classified. Think about it this way. If I were injured or became ill while mobilized to paint rocks at some non-GWOT related installation, and returned to active duty under 12301h to be treated, etc., that time would NOT count toward my reduced...

    Anyone have any info on Concurrent Receipt for us less than 20 years folks?

    I know this thread seems to be dead, but let me pose this question: if you receive a 15-year letter under 10 USC 12731b, are you eligible for concurrent receipt immediately with a 30% DoD/70% VA retirement? This quote comes from the DFAS concurrent receipt website "Under these rules, you...
