    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Separation Pay / VA Compensation Pay Question

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!

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
