    Can i be demoted for PT failure while going through an MEB?

    I have a question. The army diagnosed me as bipolar and retired me. I just got my severance pay after four years on TDRL. Since, I have spoken to two other docs who have confirmed that not only do I not have Bipolar, but whomever diagnosed me got their degree out of a cracker jack box (direct...

    VA's recoupment of severance pay

    In regards to severance pay, does anyone know what a "VA Waiver" is? Also, I am getting conflicting stories from DFAS (go figure) everytime I ask them about the St. Clair decision. Who do I write to, whom do I call or e-mail to get my money back. Also, they shorted me a year. Same people?

    Severence pay timeline

    I was placed on TDRL in 2008. The army brought me back up on orders to be re-evaluated in September of 2012. The report came out and it stated that I was better and stable, but was still not able to come back in. The doc recomended another year on TDRL, but since I was already past four years...

    Severence pay timeline

    I'm getting tired of dealing with DFAS. 9/10 times they seem pissed off that they actually have a job to do. You tell them that you were retired by the Army and are now receiving a severence pay and they transfer you to AHRC, dorks! Two days ago I got a person on the phone that told me it was...

    Anyone know what article of the UCMJ covers MEB/PEB? I need it for an outside case I'm fighting, custody. Ex-wife brought up the "he is a vet so he is insane" argument.

    How long for Severence

    Anyone know why it is so hard to get a straight answer from DFAS? I have been speaking with them every day for the last month and they will not give me an idea of the calculation? Why is it a secret? Let's face it, we jin the military to get some direction, to learn how to live in one way or...

    How long for Severence

    I'm so confused and a little irritated. Now I am reading that it is total time. I think it is jacked that they only give for active duty time, even though I spent just shy of a decade in the military, they will give me a severence for half. Another thing that is irritating is that we pay our own...

    TDRL Eval - Fit for Duty, is early retirement an option?

    Are you talking to me pittpan2005? If so, why? Also, if the Army finds me fit for duty, or if they drop me from 30% to 20% or something, maybe even does separate me, what affect if any does that have on my VA?

    TDRL Eval - Fit for Duty, is early retirement an option?

    So, I got the letter from TDRL, talked to them two days ago, and they told me that I would be brought down to Ft. Bliss first week of September. I was told if they find me fit for duty to see a recruiter, so like a good little soldier I started doing some research. I called a recruiter to give...

    TDRL Eval - Fit for Duty, is early retirement an option?

    Ok, so I was placed on TDRL on 28 JUN 2008. I think I am pretty good and would have no problem going back in, if they find me fit for duty. I finally got a hold of the right person and since I have less then a year left on TDRL, I am going to be giving priority with my re-evaluation. The army...

I was not notified of my first appointment and was sent a letter stating that my TDRL may be suspended; however, when I called them back, I was told my appointment would be 4 months down the line and I would receive notification within two...
