DoD or VA Percentage?

Hi,

I'm not certain how I will be compensated.

Went through IDES; will be on PDRL.

Results:
DoD: 40
Combined VA: 70
Service: 12 yrs

This is my understanding:
(Years of Service) x (2.5%) x (Retired Base Pay) = Disability Retired Pay
-OR-
(Disability % - not to exceed 75%) x (Retired base pay) = Disability Retired Pay

The one based on years of service seems straightforward. I understand that.

But 2nd option based on "Disability %"... I'm not certain.

Which "Disability %" is used? The DoD or the VA %? Ideally, I'd prefer they use the higher VA % since it would be the most beneficial to me.

I'm just not sure...

Thanks in advance for the response.

It (disability percentage) is the DOD rate which appears to be 40% in your case.

Years of AD 12 x 2.5% = 30% is the years of service percentage you mentioned.

RON G; please support with my inquiry below



I'm new at this site; and appreciate your support for service members.

This is my current situation;

Current M-day Soldier; with 22 years this August 2019; this is a combination of Active and National Guard with multiple deployments.

1. I am rated at 40% VA (tendonitis; and lower back (herniated disc) as an airborne infantry.

2. Pending VA claim for skin and other issues;


Question;

1. Should I move forward with PEB with a pending VA claim?

2. With the pending VA claims; will PEB take the pending VA claim into consideration?

Unfortunately,I have no knowledge whatsoever regarding the subjects you have mentioned.
It is not a matter of not wanting to help; however, it would be tantamount to you having a problem with the plumbing at your home and
an automobile salesman attempts to solve the problem. I am not a CH 61 retiree.

My expertise is with CRDP and CRSC and computation of retired pay.

There are many here who can help you.

Good luck,
