    Knee Ratings/Potential Reconsideration

    Medical Retirement, Payment, etc.

    So I got my Ratings yesterday. 50% DoD and 80% VA. I got the paperwork saying how much I'll be paid by the VA, but will I get anything from the DoD side? It's all confusing. My IPEB came back with Permanent Retirement so I'm not sure how it works. Do I still get severance pay? Thanks in advance.

    ROM based on initial, repetitive use, or flare-up degrees?

    I just received my C&P exam results. Despite their being numerous issues with the wrong extremity noted, incorrect ROMs, etc..., I am wondering if the VA uses the ROM measurements from the initial measurements, after repetitive use measurements, or the flare-up measurements? Anyone know? TIA
