I've been going through the MEB/PEB the last five months and have thought I've seen it all. However, today topped it. So, to explain, I'm a Reservist, found unfit and just received my orders for retirement in mid-July. Long story short, I have 3519 points, which translates to 9 years and 9 months disability retirement. This is what is used as my base pay when calculating my compensation. However, these points were calculated as of last June 2017. My anniversary date is at the end of June (which tells me if I had a good year or not). At the end of this year, the calculations should equal a total of 3600 points, which is equivalent to 10 years, which in turn bumps my monthly compensation rate up $300/mo. However, when I asked my PEBLO about whether or not DFAS will include this in their retirement calculations, she talked to the PDA who told her, the points on the orders is all that matters, I shouldn't be drilling or conducting any Army training period especially after I was found unfit. Which I've never heard. I was always told, I had to drill, do PT, etc., until I was retired or forced out. But I find the point calculation unfair and am hoping someone could provide clarity on this type of situation. Sorry for the long, drawn out explanation (I actually shortened it).
