Separation Pay / VA Compensation Pay Question


Hi All,

I received the results of the PEB and was discharged 9/27/16 after 5 years of honorable service as an E-5.  The Informal Board Disposition: sep w/sev.; w/o benefits, and Rating of 0%.  The Findings of the PEB said TDRL, 100% rating.  Am I going to receive separation pay, retirement pay, VA 100% pay, or a some combination of these pays?  How does this work?

Gee, I wish someone else would answer this with more knowledge on this subject, but I will take a guess, anyway.

I think "TDRL" is something temporary.  I think you probably will need to apply at VA.  If you posted the decision, we may be able to answer better....we have to "interpret" your interpretation, and our analaysis cant be better than your interpretation.  This is why lawyers always want to see documents, rather then them interpret our interpretaiton.

Well put Broncovet.

The post has conflicting info in it.

You could cover your name and any identifying info , scan it and then paste or attach the PEB stuff  here.

It says you were "sep w/sev" ,I think that means  separated with severance  pay, " w/o benefits "--- I think w/o means without ,and a "0" rating but also they gave you a 100% rating.

We cant answer your questions yet...And as Broncovet said, you will have to apply  for any VA Compensation. ...and that is offset to any  severance pay.

A neighbor told me recently he was rated by the Mil (PEB)but never received a dime from the VA...about 15 years ago...and suddenly wanted me to help him because they owe him 'so much'....and he never heard back from 3 lawyers who were helping him....but he didn't know who they were and had never signed anything with them, and never even filed a VA claim.Then he asked me for a loan. :blink: I sent him to the county vet reps.

I mention this because whether they owe you severance pay or not,it would be wise to file the claim VA ASAP!!!!!! The neighbor did not believe me when I told him how long claims were taking.

We have had discussion here many times, even recently on PEBs findings and separation pay etc etc and you need to search CRDP/CRSC info here to see if you would be eligible for one of these programs.

CRDP is automatic. CRSC has to be applied for.

I know.... it is all overwhelming at first ....and .we can help more if we know more.And thank you for your service!

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here

      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.

      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.

      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.

      Specially Adapted Homes

      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.

      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.

      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.
