I spoke to the JAG this afternoon and he informed me that when reservists get medically retired they still have to wait until they turn 60 before they can collect their pay. Until then all they can get is the VA compensation. This doesn't sound right to me. Its my understanding that when a reservists gets medically retired you start drawing your retired pay once the paperwork is finalized. I tried to call my Pay office to inquire about this but they were closed. Anyone have any input on this?
