Hoping to create a discussion as to steps that need to be completed prior to EASing. I was unfit on MEB and awarded TDRL. Since then my command has more or less forgotten about me and due to COVID i have felt alone during this transition about what I need to do. My questions that I need assistance with are what needs to be done IOT start receiving DOD retirement and VA disability payments after my EAS.

I have received my final DOD findings and VA ratings but not sure how to "start" those payments once i get out. I cannot imagine that it just starts automatically. That would make to much sense.
Lastly, how do I transfer my tricare from acitve duty to the post EAS retired tricare coverage for my family.

Any guidance or assistance is greatly appreciated yall! Thanks

DFAS is automatic, no action required other than keeping your bank & address updated.

VA: Upload your DD-214 to or ebenefits as COVID-19 as hampered Federal Record processing. VA needs the DD-214 to verify service and ensure the correct effective dates, award your final ratings.

TRICARE: Get a retiree ID on base and make enrollment pay premiums I believe 3 months due approx $150.
