Disability Retirement, 19 years 3 mo of active service, 9 months of Delayed Entry Program.

0

This is the rub, im at 19 years 3 months and tired of getting the green weenie in the ass. I just got my VA rating of 100 and my Army rating of 70%. I understand that i can request Continuation of Active Duty, to hit my 20.

The part I'm confused about is I also did Delayed Entry Program, which started 14 SEP 2002 which counts as inactive reserve time.

in DA PAM 635-40 Section 3-12 it states

Twenty years of service as computed under Title 10 United States Code section 1208 In accordance with 10 USC 1201 and 1204, a Soldier determined unfit for compensable disability is granted disability retirement if the Soldier has either 20 years of service as computed under 10 USC 1208 or a minimum disability rating of 30 percent. It is important that PEBLOs, PEB adjudicators, and transition centers understand the computation of this service, as it can mean the difference between a disability retirement and a disability separation with severance pay when the Soldier does not have the minimum 30 percent. In general, the computation is the sum of the Soldier’s active service, the Soldier’s equivalent years of service for the Soldier’s membership, and/or inactive duty training points. For regular retirement, this combination of service is called 10 USC 1405 service. Unlike regular retirement in which the 10 USC 1405 service is listed only after the Soldier obtains 20 years of active Federal service, equivalent years of service is counted for disability retirement in meeting the 20-year threshold. In summary, a minimum of 7,200 points of combined active duty, membership, and inactive duty training points results in eligibility for a disability retirement.

I have not been able to find or figure out exactly what this means. if this puts me over 20 years and i tired of this shiz, cant I accept the medboard findings instead of playing this stupid kick the can BS with a formal medboard hearing?

I talked with the Office of Soldiers Council, but both my PEBLO and the Lawyer did not have a definitive answer for me.

If anyone has experience with this or how i might go about it i would very much appreciate it.

I’d kill myself tonight if it wasn’t for my kids

0

I'm just done. Done with myself. Done with struggling over and over and over again to not be the crazy ptsd riddled sad vet. Done with acting like everything's fine and that my mind is in the same place my body is. Done with endless therapy and meds that's not working.

But of course I can't, I mean won't, bc I've got kids with no other parent. Well they have another parent, but my ex recently decided that he had enough of me too and disappeared. Now I'm holed up with the kids at my 80 yro dads house so he can keep an eye on me. Definitely makes me feel like a failure that he has to deal about this at his age.

I have to be there for my kids. They need their parents. If they can't have both, they for sure will at least have me.

Sending this into the void bc if I tell my therapist she'll send me on a grippy sock vacation and my dad isn't capable of caring for them.

Anyone able to interpret this?

0

Just had an update to my claim and went online to see the details, I didn't notice anything until I looked under the Details tab and most (if not all) of my "What you've claimed" are slightly modified as well as this final line item which didn't exist until today.

posttraumatic stress disorder (construed as a claim with TBI) (also claimed as anxiety) (Increase)

I am already service connected for PTSD, but it was recommended I file for TBI due to my records report sustaining multiple concussions. I didn't specifically file for anxiety. So, I am wondering what that above line really means.

Vet Center

Been going to the Vet Center for a couple years now and just found out from my therapist that he is leaving the Vet Center…….Has anyone been through a non-voluntary change in therapists and how did it turn out? I feel like I will be starting all over again….

Transferring GI Bill to get VRRAP

0

I want to use VRRAP and the program expires in December (have to be signed up by then) I applied for it and got denied to my surprise apparently from a separate time of service I had in the National Guard before going full-time active duty that I have 60% G.I. Bill benefits left to use that will expire July 2023

Of course, I'd rather get the VRRAP benefits because it pays for 100% of everything with housing and everything….

Theoretically, would I be able to transfer my G.I. Bill benefits to my wife (whos a veteran as well) and then qualify for VRRAP since technically, I would no longer be in possession of any other education benefits? which is a requirement for VRRAP

Can I get my 2808 and 2807-1 forms for Separation completed by the VA/C&P Exam?

0

I'm about 90 days before my EAOS/Terminal. I've been trying to get my Separation Physical (2808, 2807-1) completed at my command since 180 days before my EAOS/Terminal. Every time I go in, Medical always turns me away and tells me to comeback next week, after this time, etc…. I went in after they said to come back and once again, the PA took my forms, and said to come back in a week because he has to look at my input and that it will take HOURS and too long (I'm pretty sure it doesn't take that long to get this done… He literally went on to say that this takes 10 minutes for other people, "In and out" as he said), and that he will hold onto my forms until then.

This all seems very suspect, and I don't trust medical personnel at my command with my paperwork because they lost a bunch of my documents and did not put them in my record multiple times. I told him that I will hold onto it and that I have a C&P Separation Health Assessment with the VA, and if I can have them complete these forms/this process instead.

He said No, and that the VA does not deal with the Separation Health forms (2808, 2807-1). I remember reading somewhere that they can.

So, as the title states: Would I be able to bring these forms in during my C&P Exam and get it completed via VA, instead of Medical?

Sorry for the wall of text.

He promised

0

My fiancée was discharged from a VA hospital and I picked him up and we had a safety plan and I talked to his doctors and I have a VA clinic closer to home and we communicated about everything and then he broke his promise and started drinking again. He knows that I don’t want him to and he lied again to me. Thoughts anyone??

Got my 100% P&T. Hooray?

0

On the one hand, I don't have to worry about those re-evals. They had me doing one a year the first three years out, and those were hella rough after. But on the other, it just leaves me feeling empty that the they find me that much of a lost cause. Don't mean to be a sad sack, but definitely a mixed bag. Thankfully I'm good at keeping distracted (orchids and cats lol).

Risk of losing 100% P&T?

0

If I go to the VA and see a primary care doctor to ask about getting prescriptions for certain things. Can they ask about my disabilities and note that they’ve improved in turn cancelling my disability compensation or decreasing it? I just learned that you can’t work for more than a year because the VA will check with social security and cancel your disability benefits if they find you’re able to work.
