PEB Forum Veteran
Hey Allan I am glad to hear from you. Let me know if you got my other message I replied back to you on our conversation page.
Only if a "combat-related" determination was adjudicated by the PEB while in the DoD IDES process is when the military disability retirement shall be computed by DFAS as tax-free military Service retired pay.... The differences with being medically retired is all of your money will not be taxed. ...
Please reference the CRDP eligibility chart attachment below for specific detailed information:... Because you have 20 years you will get your DOD retirement check and your VA check upon your retirement from the military. ...

Thus, I quite often comment that "possessing well-informed knowledge is truly a powerful equalizer."
Hello @Kazhmone,Hello Warrior644,
Thank you for giving this information to help me out as well as what I wrote about to hmm325. It helps to give more clarity with what I was trying to explain. You always find the best charts to assist as well.

Allan0320, My Attorney submitted my SSDI appeal electronically last week. Today I recieved another function form and my husband recieved 1 to fill out. Did you receive another function form to complete? Have you heard anything else about your case yet?So far am awaiting on my second decision hopefully I should know something by thanksgiving, if disapprove again lawyer said we go for the hearing within 90 days so hopefully by mar16 all this will be over So how are you doing are you still in?
I was given 60% by the VA for 6817 but the Navy gave me 0% for 6817. I'm taking Coumadin for life. PDBR shot me down. 14 years in the Navy and no retirement.Hello Allan0320,
Please keep me posted. I went back through this forum trying to find more people that had this condition as we do. I did not see alot. I am having complications still with my legs swelling. I guess that is why they gave the 20% for each leg under 7121. I feel the rating should have been more for life long anticoagulant condition especially when I'm having to take thinners (6817) for life since this is my second time developing clots within 2 years. Certain jobs will not hire you when you are taking this medication because of the risk. Make sure you got everything documented for that condition.
I appealed to the PDBR but lost. I then appealed to the BCNR and lost again but the BCNR said they can't overturn a PDBR decision and recommended I appeal to the PDBR again. I'm looking for a good lawyer to do just that. I don't know if anyone has ever tried it before, and if so, were they successful?Wow are you going to appeal?

They gave me Service connected but 0% rating I am also on Blood thinners for life and still to this day have complications with swelling and burning sensations in my legs if any one has any kind of information how to proceed with filing a claim any info will be greatly appreciated. I kind of got thrown out with no guidance on anything about filing a claim
