    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

What happens when a vet with an Other Than Honorable discharge is rated at 100% Total & Permanent based off an earlier service period?

Question

Do they qualify for a retiree ID?

Do they qualify for PX & Commissary privileges? 

Do they qualify for state benefits for being rated 100% P&T? Even if their DD-214 states Other Than Honorable?

What does your decision say?  Does it say you are "eligible for Chapter 35 DEA benefits"?  If so, then you are good to go for all those things.  You can also look in your "letters" section of ebenfits, it will let you know.

If the VA has made a Character of Service determination that makes a OTH vet eligible for VA benefits and health care, the veteran can expect to rece8ive those benefits.

I helped with 2-3 OTH vets get SCed.

I think they had to aopply for a new DD215 via a DD 149- but not sure.

I think your newsSC status would makeyou eligible for either CRDP and CRSC....as a retiree.searchable here 

"they qualify for a retiree ID?

Do they qualify for PX & Commissary privileges? 

Do they qualify for state benefits for being rated 100% P&T? Even if their DD-214 states Other Than Honorable?"

 

Yes in my opinion to all of above first three  questions, but that will require the new DD214 or a DD215. Did the decision have any info on the new Discharge Papers?

You have 2 choices:  Wait for the letter (good choice), or you can try printing out your letter by logging into ebenefits.  (also not a bad choice if you have an ebenefits premium account).  The letter in ebenfits will grant you access to the base, providing you have been awarded 100 percent P and T.  I can not recall if you need your dd214, but you do need the letter which grants commissary priveledges on post.  You have to take this letter to the post, and some other forms of Id (probably a birth certificate, drivers license or passport) and you can then obtain an id which permits on post access to MWR.  MWR is things like access to the base exchange, the commissary, and even things like access to the wood shop, gym, and more, depending on which of these, if any, is available at your nearby post.  My post has all these things and more: Travel, such as discount tickets to Disneyland, a movie theatre, and discounted alcoholic beverage store.  They also have a fabalous wood shop with many tools, an auto shop, and you can use these at a very low cost or free, but you may have to demonstrate you know how to use these tools so you dont injure yourself or others.  

In San Diego, I could "check out" a small motor boat, but that was years ago and Im unaware if they still allow that or not.  

I estimate the wood shop has 1/4 million or more worth of tools.  Several nice table saws, a jig for making dovetails (such as for drawers), a sander that sands both sides of a board up to about 15 inches wide, Thickness planer, jointers, Lathes, routers, thousands of dollars worth of hundreds of router bits and drill bits.  My cousin had a counter top shop and this shop would put it to shame.  The shop is probably 100 feet by 100 feet, full of huge expensive Industrail grade  tools...almost all of which are working.  Ditto for the auto shop.  I think the auto shop has a tool which will turn your brake drums, but Im sure you have to be checked out to make sure you know how to use it.  Oh, the auto shop has dozens of lifts so you can raise your car and work on it.  These cost Tens of thousands of dollars each.

The decision notification letter hasn't arrived yet but my VSO called me to tell me what's going on and suggested that I try to go get an ID card made for myself and my dependents but wasn't sure if it would work for me due to my DD-214. eBenefits shows that my dependents are eligible for the education assistance program and whenever I generate a benefits letter it says that I'm total and permanent.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
