When you are MEB'd with 19 years the usual route is to assume fitness until retirement, but you can be admin held until to culmination of MEB, but I believe you can waive it to retire.So I had a heart MRI last week and I wasn’t supposed to meet back with the cardiologist until May. However, I received a call from my case manager saying the cardiologist wants to see me Thursday. Apparently my heart MRI came back and my ejection fraction was 35%.
I can apply to retire on 1 Feb and hit 20 Years active duty in Dec 2020. If I’m MEB between then and now is where I get confused. Say they MEB me for my heart or migraine but I make it to 20. Am I still allowed to claim those with the VA for disability? Thanks!
Hopefully someone with knowledge can respond to this.
