Step 1: The VA takes your medical over the day after discharge.

There is no compensation for any disability while on active duty. They will pay you from the date of separation. Did you have the issue when you went into service? Help us to understand this question a little more.

Thanks

my va disability was retroactive to the day after the end of my enlistment, i don't know that this has changed. i think the earliest retro date you can get is the day after the end of your enlistment but others chime in here
