    2 Formulas for DoD Retirement pay

    Ron G, VA compensation (100% no dependents) = $3106 and no SMC. So I shouldn't have to deal with any type of offset? Thanks

    2 Formulas for DoD Retirement pay

    Hello RonG, I am still confused about CH61 and CSB-REDUX. Can you help me get an idea of what my pay will be? I am O4 (example high three: $8035) 20% DoD 100% VA 20.0 Active Duty years (upon expiration of COAD) - eligible for CRDP CH61 Retirement upon expiration of COAD I took $30K CSB-Redux...

    COAD approval and timeline?

    I submitted my COAD packet to my PEBLO on/around February 6, 2019 and my approved COAD memo is dated March 15, 2019. I have no idea what your chances are. I think it depends on how bad the Army needs people in your rank and MOS. I am an officer in one of the medical fields, so I think that...

    P3 question

    It appears that the sanctuary program applies to Reservists/National Guard in certain circumstances, and the Soldier must apply for it: HRC - Enlisted Sanctuary Program HRC - Officer Sanctuary Program

    P3 question

    Paul, I don't know if this is relevant to your situation, but AR 600-9 para 3-3 exempts Soldiers with an approved COAD from the requirements of the Army Body Composition Program. AR600-9 para 3-18c allows Soldiers who have completed a minimum of 18 years AFS to be extended for the minimum time...

    P3 question

    Paul, I don't think there is such a thing as "the sanctuary rule" per se. AR 635-40 DISABILITY EVALUATION FOR RETENTION, RETIREMENT, OR SEPARATION (19 January 2017) Chapter 6 covers Continuation on Active Duty and Continuation on Active Reserve Status of Unfit Soldiers. An approved COAD allows...

    UQR and MEB questions

    Don't do the UQR! Get your surgeries to get yourself fixed and recovered as much as possible, then go through MEB/PEB which may get you medical retirement with Tricare eligibility if your unfit conditions are rated 30% or higher by DoD. Good luck!

    P3 question

    I am also an active duty Army officer with 18 years of service when I was given a P3 profile which initiated the med board process last October. I nearly lost my retirement pension eligibility ($4000/month for the rest of my life) because I was found unfit and only rated 20% DoD and 100% VA...

    COAD Help

    This is probably not the kind of Commander recommendation for COAD that you want, but this is what mine wrote about me.

    COAD approval and timeline?

    Has anyone had a COAD (Continue on Active Duty) request approved, and if so, how long did it take for approval or denial? I signed my DA199 (after my request for VA Ratings Reconsideration was denied) and submitted my COAD request the same day, on Feb 14, 2019. I have over 18 years active duty...

    Trying to determine how to stretch out the process until retirement

    I think it is too late for me. I will be separated with severance after 19 years of active duty with 20% DoD/100% VA unless COAD request is approved (not likely). I sent an email to peblawyer.com a few months ago when my IDES process started and got no response.

    Trying to determine how to stretch out the process until retirement

    I'm at 18 yrs and 6 months active duty Army, and they are RUSHING my case through at every stage of the process trying to meet the 295 day (now 235 day) guideline per DTM 18-004. I was referred to IDES on 3 OCT 2018, found unfit by PEB on 4 JAN 2019, received my preliminary ratings on 25 JAN...

    IDES after 18 years of active duty

    I think the “Sanctuary Status” is a myth now that we are in the “Deploy or Get Out” phase

    IDES after 18 years of active duty

    After a successful MEB appeal to add a 2nd condition to be found unfit (in order to increase my chances of getting to 30% DoD if all else fails), my VA ratings are back as "Separate with severance" / 100% VA. I will find out the exact percentage this morning when I meet with the PEBLO. Should I...

    18 1/2 years Army, pending MEB/PEB

    I found another reference supporting retention of Soldiers with more than 18 but less than 20 years of service. AR 601-280 Army Retention Program -1 April 2016 authorizes exceptions to policy for: - Soldiers failing to meet retention standards of AR 600-9 - Soldiers being separated for physical...

    18 1/2 years Army, pending MEB/PEB

    What DoDI is this? I am in the same situation as you, I think, facing MEB/PEB with more than 18 years of active duty service and at risk of losing eligibility for retirement pay and benefits. Thank you.

    IDES after 18 years of active duty

    Can you tell me which date they use to determine your length of service for retirement purposes? Do they use Basic Active Service Date, Pay Entry Basic Date, or do they go by months of Active Federal Service? Mine are all different. Right now, my BASD is 20001110; my PEBD is 19990326, and I'm...
