    Severance pay

    I was told by the lawyer that since I will be eligible for E7 and over 11.5 years that my severance pay would be calculated at the rate of E7 over 12 years. So basically on my final day of terminal leave I will be at 11.6 years of service and that’s what DFAS uses to calculate my the pay and...

    How does paying back the severance pay work?

    I'm Active Duty USMC and am on a Med Board. If you end up being offered severance pay and not medical retirement (because of a DOD rating less than 30%), do you have to pay it all back before you can collect ANY VA Disability compensation? I was under the assumption you couldn't even collect a...

    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.

    Choices available

    If the referring condition comes back at 30% or more and you are at 15 years of service; can you elect to deny the retirement and choose the severance? I understand all the benefits but looking at all options for my family right now.
