I am a SSG with 9 yrs in AD. I underwent a L5-S1 fusion Sept. 2010 and have reoccuring issues with the pain. I also have various other chronic problems; arthritis in both feet and carpal tunnel, tension headaches from back. I am concerned that is I go to a MMRB then I will not receive a high enough % to get retired (over 30%?) How long does it take to get a VA rating? What are average ratings for various ailments? My primary concern is that I cannot pay my bills and support my family.
