Hello again,If I am understanding this correctly. If you are a chapter 61 retiree as a guardsman or reservist you will be able to collect your retirement now. CRDP will have to wait until you hit the age of 60 or before. Based on deployment or mobilization after 2008.
I was chapter 61 retired 10 June 2019. I filed my VA claims after receiving my DA199 in may. The claims I filed didn't have LOD's because they weren't injurie's. In the guard they don't issue LOD's for illness's, just injuries. I filed claims for everything that was on my DA199, The VA took 4 months to decide what was on my DA199 WASN'T service connected.
