  • Military Disability Retirement Pay shouldn't be included in taxable income if your disability or injury was caused by combat or if you get military disability instead of VA disability for your injuries.”

    Is this a true statement?

    Yes but the article is a bit misleading. Non taxable would be for combat related non fitting chapter 61 retirements. The other exception is when you don't agree to an offset from the VA you can exclude paying federal taxes on the amount that the VA compensation would have been received by offset.

    This is what this part of the article says: Military Disability Retirement Pay shouldn't be included in taxable income if your disability or injury was caused by combat or if you get military disability instead of VA disability for your injuries.

    The beginning part makes a general statement that isn't quite true as most pensions are subject to federal taxes.
    Hi Dan,

    I just posted the new update to DODI 1332.18 and explained why it is important for PEB Forum members to review this document. However, I could not find a place to post it under the Resources section- can you do so? Thanks! v/r

    PS. I shared a copy of it with Jason Perry last week but know that he has not had a chance to share it yet

    “Another factor is to know if your chapter 61 pension is exempt from Federal Income Taxes”


    Can you state this in different words?

    I missed my window of opportunity. The IPEB only found one item unfitting, but that one was 100%, so I accepted. I should have appealed because my presumptive conditions were not found unfitting. Thus no tax free DoD money.

    Hello,
    I am new to the forum and was looking gor for contact info of attorneys that might be able to help me with my claim.
    Ron suggested that I reach out to you to see if you had any you could recommend. I am in Northwest Indiana.

    Thank you for your time and consideration of a fellow veterans need.

    I was med boarded out in 2003 with a zero % rating. I may or may not need a board of corrections as I just discovered that my second LOD injury (MVA) was never recorded. I am now rated 100% P&T for PTSD through the VA.

    I'm not even sure any of this pursuit is worth it, but it has always bothered me that I lost my career. I only found out that I even had a rating in 2015 when they cut my insurance at work, and I needed to see a doctor because my old military injuries were becoming unbearable, so I looked to the VA for support. I then found my 0percent rating was mailed to the wrong address. I now have secondary issues I have had rejected by the VA.

    Please forgive the digression. I sure could use some professional help with my claim.

    With Appreciation,
    -Alfredo

    I sent you some recommendations. Attorneys for these type of matters don't need to be local. Picking the best one is will yield better results verse choosing one locally.
