    Retirement Certificate

    Pretty much it except for any leave you may have and PTDY you may be authorized. If you are retiring make sure you get in touch with RSO @ Belvoir as soon as you get orders. Keep in touch!

    They will call you only after you do an inquiry. Usually 1-2 business days. Make sure you call them well in advance.

    Seattle Regional VA Timelines:

    Yeah Billy most transition centers will wait for the official copy but they will get it electronically. If you get someone that is prior military they are a lot easier to deal with in most cases. I actually sat and watched my 214 being processed along with my orders. I wouldn't be in too much...

    So just to piggyback on this I was wondering with back-pay do they back date it even though someone is receiving retirement pay?

    Medically Retired... and now, the VA fun begins

    Megan I ran into a SNAFU when I retired and it was all because someone entered the wrong data/code into DEERS. Check online with DEERS. If something is wrong they will fix it quickly as long as they have the correct documents. I had me as being retired for only 1 day...lol...

    VA C&P Hearing Test

    I had all the same test also when I was going through the MEB. Luckily my PCM referred me to audiology where they conducted more test then decided to do an MRI. To my surprise a tumor was found that was effecting my hearing and had to be removed. I now have Single Sided Deafness (SSD) in that...

    I feel you. I had a brain tumor removed back in Aug and lost my hearing in the left ear also. Seeing the Dr. @ Walter Reed next week to get fitted for my hearing device. Are you in a WTU? I take the metoprol too among other meds.

    Yeah I was surprised too. If I'm not mistaken the VA rated it at 20%. They may factor in the age and other variables. This is the reference stated on my 199. (IAW DoDI 1332.38, E3.2.1)..are you in the PEB now?

    VA VocRehab Interview tomorrow

    I have my Voc Rehab interview tomorrow. Not sure what to expect since I'm not interested in going to school. I think I would do fine just working from home, but doing what is the BIG question. How does the VA look at possible self employment? Starting a business from home? Just curious...I have...

    Total and Permanent Disability

    This is what concerns me also. Proposed VA 100%- DOD 80%. My 199 states the PEB recommends P&T but that is not always what happens on the final ratings. Its sad that we all are always hanging on the edge for what we know should be what we all deserve. I'm expecting my final ratings soon but I...
