    QUESTION? Received my TDRL orders

    Hi everybody! I received my TDRL orders a few days ago to report Mar 30, 2011... it's only 30 miles away, so I'm happy about that. Well, I'm waiting on my medical records from my PCM (civilian), and I found out yesterday that they won't be ready until at least a few days after my TDRL...

    Ok, I have a question that maybe Jason, Mike, or the moderatators might be able to answer. I was placed on TDRL in Sep of 2009 for neck issues associated with cervical fusion, and right sided motor issues associated with a stroke. While on TDRL I had some mental issues and have been seeing...

    I had every intention of returning to duty when my TDRL evaluation came up, but I recently came to the conclusion that it is not possible. My situation is very complicated because what makes me unfit for duty is not what I was placed on TDRL for. I was placed on TDRL for cervicalgia @ 20%...

    VA Fuzzy Math Calculator

    Ladies and Gents, We all know the VA has a confusing way of adding your rating percentages together; if I were to add my percentage together through normal means, I would have about a 150% rating, but that's not the case. I found this rating calculator (excel spreadsheet) on the internet and...

    Rating criteria for stroke

    Jason, I'm confused on how the DOD would rate based on conditions caused by a stroke. I don't see anywhere in the VASRD where it mentions stroke. Mainly, I still have fine motor skill issues on the right side, minimal tremors, and fatigue issues caused from my stroke; I can't even write...

    TDRL Pay

    I just read a article that stated TDRL pay was calculated according to your last month of basic pay. I was under the assumption that TDRL pay was calculated using the average amount of the HIGHEST 36 months of basic pay... just like PDRL or ordinary retirement (if you...
