Question

High received a special separation bonus when I was in the Army on active duty before I went into the reserves and retired. I am not due retirement monies until I reach 60 years of age. What will happen if I am awared more on my claim for disability? Will they garnish all or only a portion of the disability award?

Thanks

You might need to access Military.com and search for CRDP and CRSC info- actuallyu I forgot- I have posted this info here at hadit countless times- it should pop up under a hadit search.

I might not understand your question- my daughter received a bonus when she re-enlisted-I mean she signed up for 4 and then stayed for seven years in- this would have nothing to do with any potential VA disability claim she might have in the future.

Is that what you mean?

By retired from Reserves do you mean you had 20 years or more in the reserves?

This is a complex question actually but Berta hit the key point, did you retire from the reserves? The bonus was for you to go into the reserves correct, or was it for something else? M21-1MR has the guidelines for recoupment of severance pays and bonuses, but alot depends on what kind of bonus it was, and how long you served after receiving it... etc. Sorry to be vague but a bit more info is needed.

Yes I retired from the Army Reserves with 22 years now considered a gray area retiree at age 49 wil not get anything until 60.

I separated from the Army in 1995 with 18 years active duty. I did this so I could go in the reserves and retire and at the same time work for the Federal government and buy back my military time and get what you call double dipping benefits. Currently I have 31 years of creditable Government service and will retire at age 56. I understand they they cannot touch my Government pension but my Reserve retirement and the ? is about Disability payments.

I was given a 10% disability rating but have never gotten any monies since after I retired from the Army Reserves they said that they would recoup my (SSB) Special Separation Bonus back when and if I retired from the Military. That would be age 60. Now I am asking for more disability ratings and have a DRO hearing pending.

My question is if I get an increase in my disability rating to 30% or greater will they recoup all the pay before given me any of it back or will they only take a portion of my disability and pay me the remainder.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.
