I was medically retired on 31 October after 8 years and 7 months in the Air Force. 40% DoD 80% VA. I felt I was briefed a hundred times on the IDES process and how my VA claim would be ready when I separate. However it's December and I've received a retirement check and nothing from the VA. When I check the Ebenefits site I just see 5 different claims all with different statuses. Is there something else I need to get the VA funds to start and the DoD to stop? It's really crucial for me now since I've already relocated and bills need to get paid soon.
