MF6 posted a question in Eligibility - Veterans Compensation Benefit ClaimsI separated from active duty service in the Air Force with in 2010 and had undiagnosed non-combat military connected PTSD with alcohol use in remission (According to my VA disability paperwork which puts me at 50% for ptsd.) This was granted the beginning of last year. I recently put in to have my discharge upgraded to honorable from general and have yet to hear back from them. (E-benefits say maybe I'll hear about it early February 2018.) There were a few selfmedicated incidents with alcohol that happened while I was active duty that resulted in going into a civilian rehabilitation facility, a perscription to an antidepressant, and a lot of suicidal ideation I recently admitted in my paperwork to the review board that I was afraid to admit to my command because they would do things like write someone up for a sunburn (destruction of government property), or purposefully keep spouses apart by writing one up for something they didn't do and keep them from going during their significant others' PCS (because someone else did it to them for five years and "they turned out fine"(There was no way to prove otherwise.)). I was recently reading about medical retirement from the military. It's a little confusing. I was wondering if there was a way to submit for reconsideration and medically retire from the military after separation?
Hello all, I have a question...I was medically separated after 14 years of service in 2010 at 20% DOD and 60% VA. After 2 years of fighting I was bumped up to 90% and then after another couple of years I finally got to 100%. My question to you guys is if I were to go for my the extra 10% on the DOD so I can apply for medical retirement would it effect my VA compensation? could I get both a retirement check from the Navy and the VA every month? would I have to pay back any money? Thank you for all the help.
I am looking for information about if it is possible to apply for medical retirement after you've exited the Army. I have my VA rating and I need to know where to find the forms to continue from here into medical retirement (if it is possible that is). I saw on another forum that it was possible to obtain both VA and MR at the same time depending on your percentage, but no where that I have found thus far, has stated that you may CAN / NOT apply for medical retirement post Army separation. I was not medically discharged and I have very few resources to reach out to that may have the correct answers or the resources to point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance, RTC
