Early Sep for Education

0

Hey all I’m in a dire situation and if anyone has any input on this, I’d appreciate it.

Long story short, my BDE CDR has signed off on my early sep 4187 approximately 2 months ago. Afaik, he’s the final approving authority. The paperwork goes up to higher echelons in my installation but G1 supposedly doesn’t know how to process this. I don’t quite understand but I was contacted directly by a representative at my installation G1 essentially saying we “don’t exactly know what to do with this”. I wasn’t sure myself but I told them, “wouldn’t it go to HRC for final processing?” Maybe I’m wrong, idk but I thought it was literally G1’s job to know these kind of things.

I’m two weeks out from intended ETS date.. should I give up hopes of attending college this Fall? At this point it doesn’t seem likely that I’ll ETS by the date on the 4187.

I posted about receiving retro pay with no overall rating increase

I posted about receiving retro pay with no overall rating increase

Like the title says. I received about 3 months worth of retro at 10%. The timing coincides with a bunch of claims I submitted, but only one went through. The rating was 10% for left side plantar fasciitis. After I received that rating, I received the 3 months retro but my 90% rating never budged. Something like 450$ish

I do have a request in for a personal hearing as there is a proposed reduction to 80%. I'm not sure if that's affecting this or not. I'm going to call tomorrow for more information, because I don't want to deal with recoupment anymore than I already am.

Here are the two benefit letters I received. One is dated before the claim submitted that would give me the 10%. You'll also notice on the older one, I was paying back 10% in recoupment for severance but per the new letter, I'm not. My recoupment ends in February 2026, so this already is wrong.

Also notice the effective dates are different. In the claim, a middle back claim got switched to a lower lumbar increase and that was denied due to lack of complaint, but boy did I complain. When I mentioned that I didn't want an increase, but to file for middle back, the C&P examiner said "it's already SC, i don't need to see it." That's why the hearing was requested.

Any information is awesome but I'll keep this updated for anyone experiencing anything similar.

Voc Rehab Education Benefits, Can you stay in the same field of work? (IT to Programmer)

0

Hi everyone I'm a 60% disability veteran currently using my GI Bill for my bachelor's in Computer Science. I was researching on taking undergrad and grad classes in the same semester where I came across the voc rehab program and the dozens of recommendations to look into it.

I did IT in the Marines (0671) and got out about 3 years ago and have been doing IT as a contractor since. With the Voc Rehab program I understand that it is an employment placement program, and I am wanting to switch from IT to programming. Which may seem to be the same to some people but I have found IT/Sysadmin work to be pretty physical at times. I often have to carry systems, crawl in spaces to reach ports, or set up computing environments during work. My back pain being most of my disability percentage, this can lead to chronic pain as I work. Even if I move projects at my current job and notify people about this I am still expected to do several physical tasks.

Would switching to a desk potato coder be enough of a long term career adjustment to justify to the Voc Rehab people? I think it could significantly help me, and since the benefits are there I figured I would look into it.

Would it be wise to have two Health Care Providers?

0

What would be the pros v cons on having 2 docs as your PCP ?

One being through the VA, and the other either through private insurance or spouses insurance.

Either option, costs makes no difference.

Monthly Housing allowance changed on the GI Bill Comparison Tool

0

When I initially looked up the monthly housing allowance that was originally listed for my school on the GI bill comparison tool it was a little over 2500. After looking again today, the amount has been lowered to a little over 2300. What are the possible reasons for this decrease?

Medical retirement pension and VA compensation.

0

So I recently retired due to medical issues and was told prior to separating that I would only be entitled to/ receiving VA compensation and getting paid my retirement would mean I’m double dipping. Fast forward a month after I’m retired I get a deposit for my base pay times my disability (40%) from the DOD. Is this correct? I reached out to my local VA reps but they don’t know and the people that handled my med board don’t know either… which is weird to me. Just want to know so I can either set the money aside for when the DOD wants their money back or am I good to go.

PACT Act question

0

I was discharged honorably way back in 2008. I went through the gauntlet, but emerged from the VA system with no rating whatsoever. With these new PACT Act changes, chronic problems i have developed (which are symptoms of one or more of the “presumptive conditions”) and i am being treated by my GP. I have served in one or more AO listed. Am i wasting my time trying to get an appointment with the VA, or is this something that I could potentially thank myself for in 30 years? This is newb stuff, but I haven’t given VA benefits any thought since 2009.

Have a question about sold leave days upon separation.

0

Hi everyone! I just recently separated from the Navy and had 35 leave days to sell considering I wasn’t given the opportunity for terminal leave. I was curious as to how long it takes for them to issue payment and if they mail a check or use your direct deposit. Thank you!

To the vets that served in the USAR

0

Hey y’all, so this question is for the people that were in the USAR specifically. So I recently got off active duty and signed a one year contract with the reserves. On my contract it says my ETS date is this December which is when I’m supposed to transition into the IRR. My career counselor told me if I don’t have my orders for the IRR by my ETS date I still have to report to drill after that since I’m in a TPU status still. From my understanding, even if they do force me to show up I won’t be payed since it’s past my ETS. My question is how the hell does this even make since. They told me if I just stop showing up without my orders past my ETS date they will start giving me Us? This makes no sense to me. Would this be grounds for a congressional complaint since it sounds like to me they are forcing me to drill past my ETS date and not releasing me on time? Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

Non-vet company equals stolen valor?

0

I was active Army in the 90’ to 2000’s. I did my time proudly, have my combat experiences, Yada yada. This isn’t about me really.…

I got into the t-shirt business with a civilian who is all about the patriotic/thanks-for-your-service/We The People stuff. Heavily tattooed, supports LEO (I was for 23 years post Army), huge punisher sticker on truck, etc. You know the type.

Long story short, he screwed me in the deal, but now refuses to take “Veteran Owned and Operated” off his website. Is it stolen valor? Do I have recourse (aside from my legal recourse specific to the business screwing)?

Any insight is appreciated.
