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?
AF1993 posted a question in VA Disability Compensation Benefits Claims Research ForumI am currently employed as a federal law enforcement officer, retiring in a couple of months. When you reach age 57 you are mandated by law to retire. With the SC conditions (I'm 70%), I have, I will not be able to acquire employment in the exact discipline I'm in. I currently earn six figures but upon retirement but my pension will be $50K . I have a BS in Voc. Educ, and I would like to work as a school counselor or teach. I am new to this process, so can anyone share what's the best way to approach in terms of seeking approval with Voc Rehab & Employment so I can get a Master's Degree? Do I even have a chance of getting approved? I have at least 10 years of "Work Energy" left.
