Can my case be reviewed?

So here's my story..... I was Active, I was Guard, and also a Military Technician. 21 + years (Only 12 active) and out on a Med board. My deal is, I was rated below 30% (VA and DoD) so no benefits only choice of separation pay or NG retirement from the military side. Technician side I received the standard 60%/40% annuity... can't make over 80% of last wage grade blah blah blah. Five years later, that % that made me unfit is now 50%. Can I go back and ask the med board or PEB to review my case?

Your 60/40 annuity is based off your high three as a technician. You should have received a retirement book from OPM retirement services. If not, you can request a replacement book from Services Online. This calculated your high three salary and will establish what 80% of your high three can be calculated from. I believe you have the option when you turn of retirement age [60], to select which ever retirement is higher, disability or normal. Maybe a SME will chime in a clarify.

If you think your case was processed incorrectly you can appeal to the Board for Correction of Military Records. The board normally takes a couple years to get to your case but they could possibly change your DOD% to the 50% and then would make you eligible for the Military medical retirement and Tricare. its a long process and you will have to prove that your condition should have been rated 50% at the time of the board.

You can only appeal the decision if your percentage of disability should have been at or greater than 30% at the time of separation. A conditions that was properly rated, then got worse over time does not make one retirement eligible.
