PMJ posted a question in VA Disability Compensation Benefits Claims Research ForumVets, I am a 12 year AD Veteran who recently separated under Honorable conditions with RE-1 code. I filled my quick start compensation claim while I was still in AD. My claim status on eBenefits says to be finalize between APR14-NOV14. My career plans after separation did not go as planned. I contacted the AD and Reserve recruiters to see the possibilities on returning to AD or joining the reserve. I was told neither may happen since I submitted a VA claim. Should I cancel or stop my claim in order to return to AD or joining the reserves? Is there a penalty for doing so? Will I b
