Question

I have been medically retired with the following:

30% PDRL

Currently collecting retirement pay

Has 21-years; 10-months overall service (including guard, reserve, and active duty)

Has Over 8-years total active duty

VA claims has been submitted and need to have exam rescheduled

Current status of claim is - Evidence Gathering

Has an eBenefit account established

Questions

1. Will I be issued 20-year letter since I have over 21-years of good years?

2. Will I need to file for the CRDP when I turned 60-years or will DFAS will automatically qualify me since I have over 21-years?

3. My claim is assigned to the Winston-Salem and call the toll free 1000 is swamped. How else can I contact VA to reschedule the appointment that I missed for an exam?

4. What other benefits can I qualify for?

Any assistance/guidance will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you. Also, while on terminal leave, X-ray and MRI showed problems with my L5 and S1 of my back causing severe pain on my lower back and right glute that radiates down to my right foot. Will I be able to add this to my claim? And most important, can I go back to active duty status for treatment since it happened while still on my terminal leave. I medically retired with the O3E pay grade. Any assistance/guidance will be greatly appreciated.

ckc,

Welcome.

Are you familiar with "Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay"?
