    Phone call?

    missed a phone call today from this number 18664001237. On the voicemail the person identified themselves as someone with the veterans affairs office, and addressed me by name, and wanted to go over benefits, the rest of the call was unintelligible. Kind of sounds like a scam. Anyone else...

    First VA pay

    Sorry if this has been asked before. I was medically retired and am on terminal leave until the retirement date, I’m officially retired Nov 27 2019. I know I’ll have to turn in my dd214, when could I expect to receive my first VA check? I’m guessing it will be around the January time frame.

    How does the severance pay work? I know it’s times your base pay if you have 8 or more years in. Do you get the option to take a severance check?

    C&P Exams

    Got a question for guidance on this. So I’m in the IDES process for an MEB. I have my exams scheduled. What does one do if my shop starts giving me crap about attending these or the quantity of appointments due to “manning” issues?

    How long did y’all wait to get scheduled for your exams after meeting with MSC? I met with him last week to establish my claims and haven’t heard from him since. Went to the transition center on base and I haven’t even been put in the system. I get the impression IDES isn’t efficient at all
