    Just applied for SSDI

    I finally got my hearing with the ALJ set for November. I have a few more documents since my application to send in but hoping it’ll be a slam dunk...in my favor.

    Is IDES going away?

    TAP is sort of going away - being modified by the DoD for implementation later next year but I doubt IDES is going anywhere anytime soon. I haven’t heard this anywhere else.

    Medically retired -DFAS and Base Finance

    Copy all, Ron. Thank you. About when should one expect to get the DFAS letter asking the retiree to make an election on which plan the member chooses, Ch 61 or YOS retiree pay?

    Medically retired -DFAS and Base Finance

    Yes sir. Thank you. I will for sure be electing Ch 61 (it locks in my Tricare Premiums). My VA at 100% is way more than what my 20 AD enlisted pay would have been but there’s an offset for CRDP (20 AD years) and that’s the part that’s semi-fuzzy, as you’ve explained it to me before with...

    Medically retired -DFAS and Base Finance

    Quick question: medically retired with 20 AD. VA rating 100%, which is more than my retired pay. Looking at my retirement order, I see DFAS was copied. Since DFAS will administer my pay, what would I need for my base Finance office when I out-process, since I’m not going to draw true retired...

    Working on Terminal Leave

    Is there a limit on how much you can earn, if any, while drawing SSDI? Maybe I’m thinking of P&T and IU?

    AGR Retirement Orders

    Thanks for your reply. I am completely done with the MEB process and everything has been finalized and signed. I am now just awaiting my retirement orders. Everything else is complete after two years. Our orders come from from Randolph.

    AGR Retirement Orders

    Any Air AGRs have any feedback on how long it took you for receipt of retirement orders? I’m sitting at over a month and am being told my case manager at Randolph was working it...2 weeks ago. ETS is quickly approaching and doesn’t leave a lot of time to outprocess and move, break lease, etc.

    MEB and extension?

    You should be golden. You have 10 days alone at each stage to review and sign documents. I think I had 3 events that took 10 days each (initial, appeal, and final) and you can also request an IMR. That alone is typically 5-10 days. Worse case, appeal for IPEB and then with SAFPC.

    One time VA reconsideration request

    Congrats! That’s a big relief! Did you have a separation worksheet to fill out out or just out processed and left?

    General Timeline Question

    I probably got assigned the case manager who works 1/2 days twice a week. I’m realistically expecting them by end of this week but I’m not holding my breath. We will see. Congrats on your quick turn! Enjoy retirement!

    General Timeline Question

    WOW. I must have a very slow case manager. This is week 2 for me and still nothing. 3 hours is smoking fast! Did you have your 20? I’m thinking maybe that could be the reason on mine. Who knows.

    General Timeline Question

    I Waac informed they are taking 2-3 weeks for orders. That seems like an eternity. :)

    General Timeline Question

    Yeah there are 2 guys there that aren’t friendly. One sounds like a grumpy old man. There’s a woman (forget her name) and the supervisor (Paul) - both of them are very nice and helpful.

    Final Ratings

    Hmmm. I was also wondering when pay election would be? I received final ratings and accepted them but wasn’t given anything to sign regarding my pay election. I will have CRDP but my VA is more than my retirement pay.

    Just applied for SSDI

    Wounded Warrior Program is supposed to help facilitate the veteran's claim. I have been denied thrice and been waiting for a hearing date since close to first of this year.

    One time VA reconsideration request

    Got it. Hopefully we will get some orders soon. I was hoping that AFPC email was it but at least I’m happy to know it’s being worked.

    One time VA reconsideration request

    Why would you need an extension, are you back at the SAFPC again?

    One time VA reconsideration request

    Any orders yet? I got a message from AFPC but was about someone verifying my service dates...guess my caseworker started on them...hopefully.
