Hello all, I am a Coast Guard Reserve member with 11 years in. I injured myself on Title 10 deployemnt for Iraqi Freedom this year. I dont think I will be able to pass the P.T. test for my unit. I think I may be looking at a Med Board and I dont know what comes next if this happens. My drill income is a major part of my income and wont be able to stay afloat without it. Can I get some compensation from the coast guard? Can someone give me a rundown of what I am looking at? What kind of compensations or medical retirements may I be able to get? In real need of some good advice.

Are you still on orders? If not, you may have been wrongfully discharged. Need to know more about your disability to provide more insight. Were you on LIMDU? Do you have profile limitations?

If you are unfit with 0-20% degree of disability, you will receive severance pay. If you are unfit due to disabilities rated at 30% or more, you will be retired.
