If you are member of the Guard or Reserve and you are medically retired for a service-connected disability, will you receive your retirement pay on the effective date of your retirement? Or do you have to wait until age 60?

How long do you have in the Guards?

I see you are 60% VA and I would think maybe this would be considered as concurrent receipt which- only in certain circumstances -can a vet get both at same time-

Do you believe that the 60% should be rated higher? are you employed presently?

I'm an Air Reserve Technician (ART) with 28 years in the Reserves. With the

medical retirement from the Reserves, I am also being forced to Retire from

Civil Service. (They go hand-in-hand). I am presently working on getting my

rating increased.

ThanK you for those Long years of service-

I suggest you apply for TDIU (the form and info is in the TDIU forum)- VA comp at the 100% rate-

You could possibly be eligible for one of these benefits too-- CRDP or CRSC:

I am waiting to hear from an Reservist officer I know who just got back from TDY-Kuwait- maybe he could answer the pay and age question-

He is about 60 years old himself- and still in the reserves but might know- I cant help with that question- we do have some retirees here that hopefully will answer-if I dont hear from the guy I know-

I also think it's age 60 but I'd apply, just in case I'm wrong and if you're being medically retired for your SC condition, I'd request 100% or TDIU.

  • 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.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
