    Overtaxed on Severance Pay

    Retirement vs severance choice

    Currently an O2E with 10 years looking at 20 or 30% dod, 80 VA. My issue is borderline at 20 or 30%, if I get 20% I would get 100k severance. I have a federal GS9 job lined up so I'm not worried about the insurance benifits, would it be better to get the retirement or the severance?

    Involuntary Separation (APFT failure 2x) and VA rating

    This hasn't happened yet but I was looking into for information. This is what I am tracking: Soldier gets out on APFT failure (ch 13). Gets honorable. Gets severance pay. If Soldier gets disability from VA the SM must pay back severance pay. Does this seem accurate? Thanks!
