Military Severance Pay Help

Hello everyone,

I have a couple questions that I’m hoping to get solve. I’m going to get straight to the point here.

I was Medically separated from the Navy on Septemper 28, 2018. I WAS NOT given a DD214 due The Navy NPC website issues. I couldn’t stay in California any longer due to a job offer in Georgia. I was told by PSD that they will have to type my DD214 and send it to the address that I provided. I was also told that I will not be receiving severance pay until I sign my DD214. Towards the end of October I notice in my LES that the severance pay was there, but the end of the month balance was $0.00 and it was posted in the LES month of September. I DID NOT receive a LES for the month of October, 2018. October 31, 2018 my VA Disability Case was completed and post on eBenefits.

Questions:
Is it true I won’t receive my severance pay if I didn’t sign my dd214?

If the severance pay is posted on my pay in the month of September, when will the funds be available?

When will the payout start for the VA Compensation?

I do not know all of the answers that you seek but you can go on the milconnect websight (https://milconnect.dmdc.osd.mil) and request your dd214 its done electronically. Click on correspondence / Documentation and click Defense Personnel Records. From there click on Personnel File and from there click on request my personnel file and select the files that you want. You can get all of your service files there that is if they are uploaded into the system...................The second thing when i received my severance pay they taxed the heck out if it. and I did not start receiving anything from the VA until all of my Severance pay had been paid back about 3 or 4 years later. Hope this info helps out.

Thank you sir. On my LES I see the tax taken out of the serverance pay as well. Also the VSO told me that I will be getting paid my severance pay and they will take a percentage out of month VA Compensation until the full amount of the Severance paid.

Hopefully they only take a percentage out for you but for me they took the entire thing. You may want to follow up with the VA on that part.
