I was the ANG and just outprocessed due to being found unfit for duty with a 20% disability. I am not entitled to any pay or medical benefits from the AF until my 60th birthday. I transferred to the Retired Reserves 30 June 09 and received a "pink card" for ID. On my 60th birthday I will go get a "blue card".
If my disability would have been rated at 30% or higher by the PDES, then I would have received an immediate retirement with all the rights and privileges of any "blue card" retired AF member.
I have not researched the CRSC question at all. I probably should do that. Perhaps one of our more experienced members can weigh in on this question?
I'll be watching for an answer to pop up!
