Rating calculation.

0

How is the VA benefit rating calculated exactly? I have a rating of 50%. Taking my current listed pay grade of an E3 (2 years or less), it is $2,161.87. Taking 50% from the pay grade, it should be $1,080.93. When I look at the pay grade for 50% for VA benefits, it shows that for every 50% rating is $958.44. What exactly is the principle that the VA is basing this $958.44 out of?

Not complaining. It just doesn't make sense that is all. How can the VA just give out a flat dollar amount for a percentage? I am certain that every veteran had different pay grades when they were active. I'm cool with the amount I am already receiving. I am also super happy with the medical that the VA provides. Psh. I have a whole damn team on my health, across America. The math, just doesn't make sense to me that is all.

Does anyone know if Florida gives disabled vets free fresh/saltwater fishing licenses? I’m only 70% disabled.

I looked online and they way they have it worded is pretty confusing. All I need is a fishing license for salt and fresh. Not hunting.

How to best use GI Bill when I already have a degree?

0

I still have about two years left in the service but am starting to think ahead about how I can best use the benefits I will have earned once I get out.

I already have a Bachelor's degree that I earned prior to enlisting, albeit in a field that I have no intention of working in. I will be getting a job in cyber security once my time in .mil is done (I am already on top of getting certifications, publishing research, have recruiters reaching out to me, etc) and the plan is to work remotely back in the town I went to college in before I joined.

I did a little bit of research and found that I won't be able to transfer my GI Bill benefits to a spouse or kids without a bunch more years served, something that isn't going to happen. Additionally after speaking to quite a few people in my prospective industry, I don't have reason to believe that a degree will do a whole lot to help me out job prospect wise given the certifications and experience that I will be bringing to the table; All this being the case, what is the most intelligent way to utilize my benefits to receive some kind of value from them? I do have the Montgomery GI Bill, and to my understanding because of that I could "revert" to the post 9/11 Bill if I so choose. I have seen that there is a housing allowance paid out based on the course load taken on (e.g. 6 creds = 50% housing rate). Does anyone have any experience or suggestions on how to best squeeze benefits out of the GI bill when there isn't a real desire or need to go to school full time?

Thanks

Effective date says “invalid date”

0

I haven't checked my VA ratings in awhile and decided to just go pull it up.

After looking at it I noticed the effective date on all my already rated disabilities (except one) says "invalid date".

What does this mean? I'm P&T btw

My VA letters and rating haven't changed.

new TSP site

0

Has anyone tried the new TSP site? Interested in thoughts. I'm concerned that I can't see how many shares in funds I have. The lack of data prior to May 23 is also frustrating. Overall it seems like the user experience is a lot worse now.

HVAC and the VA are a joke

0

I’ve been a homeless vet at 25F for a few months. During that time, working part time, I applied to HVAC, which is what was recommended to me after visiting the VA for homelessness. My yearly pay enrolled me into HVAC, however since I was picking up overtime that one month, to desperately make ends meet, I was denied housing. How ridiculous is this?

How the House Jan. 6 Panel Has Redefined the Congressional Hearing

No bloviating speeches or partisan rancor. Lots of video and a tight script. The story of Donald J. Trump’s efforts to hold on to power is being unspooled in a way totally new to Capitol Hill.
