Taken off TDRL

I have a feeling that I'm going to be taken off of TDRL just given my condition has improved and I'm now in much better health than the army left me.

What can I expect?

How will this effect my VA pay?

I doubt they're going to have me re-enlist (nor do I want to), but outside of that is there anything I should look out for?

Being taken off the TDRL does not impact your VA compensation, unless the VA receives info that causes them to reevaluate your approved award. If they did receive such info, there is a somewhat lengthy process they must go through (including a proposal to reduce) before an award is actually reduced.

DFAS: If at any time you are found fit for duty, you may be removed from the TDRL and returned to active duty. If your disability stabilizes and is rated at 30 percent or greater, you will be transferred to the Permanent Disability Retired List (PDRL).
