      I was put on, and discharged from AD 07/29/2013. (IDES, Med Ret Army @ 40% and VA proposed rating was 70%). My question is regarding with employment (wife and 3 teens) So far, what I have been able to find (employment wise) are jobs related to my field of expertise (aircraft maintenance, flight engineer, technical inspector).

      Jason, sorry about the extra posts. HRC told me to call DFAS who told me to call HRC, back and forth. I spent 8 hours on the phone one day, straight through attempting to get clarification from HRC and DFAS, even spoke with HRC AMEDD office and USARC. Cheri

      They (3 HCR retirement staff) kept telling me that the reduction in age does not come in to effect unless a 4187 is completed placing me on the retired reserve list & if i elect the 30%PDR/100% VA I would have to wait until i am 60 to receive CRDP? They informed me that the only way i am eligible for the reduction in age is if i waive the AD medical retirement and be placed on the retired reserve list. Cheri

      Jason, If i choose the Retiree Reserve list which is what HRC was telling me, I would be paid as a MAJ because the "law" indicates 3 years in that grade & I have been a LTC for 2 years. Cheri
      1. Jason Perry
        Jason Perry
        I am stunned at how little HRC knows about the law. You will be paid under % of High-3, which is average of highest 36 mo. of pay. All of this is covered in DoDFMR.

      Thanks Jason, the 30% PDR ->$2575 & the VA 100% ->$2975 w/VA higher & one that I will be paid monetarily. my reserve retirement @ ~ 3770 points on retirement is about $2250 as a LTC. Sincerely, Cheri

      Jason, I would prefer to "elect" the 30% PDR and 100% VA, hoping that because I qualify for the reduction in age rule, that i would be able to retire medically on AD at age 55 now, instead of having to transfer to the retired reserve list. I appreciate your advise and website.
      1. Jason Perry
        Jason Perry
        See my below comments. Based on what you have said, it is almost certainly the case that retirement with 30% PDRL and 100% VA is most advantageous to you (only caveat is I don't know all dollar amounts for each outcome/possible payment, so I can't tell for sure).

      Thanks Jason, to clarify, if i elect the 30% PDR & the 100% VA i am eligible for CRDP at age 60? My AD orders ALL qualify for reduction in age which drops my effective age of 60 down to 55. HRC retirement OFC told me that i have to transfer to Retired Reserve list to receive concurrent reserve & 100% VA pay now, but if i elect the 30% PDR & 100% VA i have to wait until age 60 to draw concurrent. Thanks,Cheri

        You will be eligible for CRDP at age 55 from what you have stated. I don't understand anything the HRC Officer told you. Seems a complete misunderstanding of law/regs.

      I am a USAR LTC w/23good yrs, mob'd in '07 =>OEF in MEB/IDES My question: Can a Reservist retiring with 30% PDR & 100% VA permanent disability be eligible for CRDP & the reduction in age while being medically discharged from active duty. Or would this Soldier have to waive medical retirement & transfer to reserve retirement list in order to receive the reduction in age & CRDP at age 55 years

        "Can a Reservist retiring with 30% PDR & 100% VA permanent disability be eligible for CRDP & the reduction in age while being medically discharged from active duty." Yes. But, the CRDP would not take effect until age you would have been retirement eligible.

        Thanks for the "bug report." I recently did an upgrade and some styling elements changed. I just looked at that issue and I believe I fixed the text color. Can you confirm if it is showing black letters now? Thanks again!

      Quick question. I just started the MEB process and have about 5000 active duty points and 5000 RC points for retirement. Will they be lumped together to surpass the magic number of 7200?? I have about 14.5 years of Active Duty and 5 years National Guard time.

      I am a title 32 AGR called to Title 10 Active Duty for Afghan Deployment. Was found to have PTSD and sent to the MEB Process. They pulled me from title 10 and put me back on title 32 during the process stating that active duty is active duty. Was I supposed to remain on title 10 until the MEB is over or was it legal to put me on title 32 status with the MEB going on?
      1. Jason Perry
        Jason Perry
        Somewhat complicated issue...you probably should have stayed Title 10. Not sure if it will matter in your case (and much of appeals on this point is tied to whether your are out any money by virtue of the change in status).

      The PDBR denied my request. My senators office wants me to file a request with Navy board of Corrections. What difference does that make? I need help, should I get an attorney?
      1. Jason Perry
        Jason Perry
        I will reply to your email. Short answer, though, is that once you have gone to PDBR to increase your ratings, you cannot apply to BCMR for same issues.

      I know it's not your bag, but I was approached with a question. My cousin is looking for advice/counsel to get his discharge from the AF upgraded. You've provided me with such a great service through my MEB/PEB, I was wondering if this is in your scope or if your know of a good attorney that you could recommend? Thanks in advance.
      1. Jason Perry
        Jason Perry
        I do handle those type of cases. However, it must be understood that these can be difficult to win. If your cousin would like to contact me on this matter, best if he sends me an email at jason.perry@jeperrylaw.com .

      Hello Jason, do I have any protection or rights in reference to proposed ratings prior to separation and final rating. I had a proposed rating of 100% for Menieres and received Army retirement pay as such until final VA award was decided. This changed to 30% but I nothing has improved and I had no appointment or treatment prior to or since the proposed and final rating.

        Need more details....were you on TDRL for a period of time or was this a reduction post placement on PDRL. Something sounds wrong here, just need to understand the situation. Baseline answer is yes, you have rights/protections. Best to start a thread on your question. I am limited to response length here.

    I founded this site in 2007 to provide information and a community for those military members facing disability evaluation.

    I am a former Army JAG officer who represented Soldiers at the Physical Evaluation Board. At that time, I was concerned with the lack of information available to those in the MEB/PEB process. Though I suggested that the Army set up a similar resource, this idea was denied. As I had already decided to leave the Army, I decided to set this site up to do what I think needs to be done- inform people of the process and provide information on compensation and benefits.

    I am an attorney in private practice and I only deal with military disability matters. I provide representation at the MEB/PEB, on administrative appeal, and in the Federal Courts. However, I do not discuss my services or provide legal advice as an attorney on this site. If you are interested in learning more about my services, please visit my webpage: www.peblawyer.com . If you want to contact me regarding professional services, feel free to email me at jason.perry@jeperrylaw.com.
