Hello all, this forum has been super helpful! On Friday I signed my concurrence for my med board ratings. 90% Air Force/100% VA (most of my ratings are related to psoriatic arthritis). I'll be opting for the VA paycheck since it makes a little more money with 5 kids. My question is about when that first paycheck arrives. I'm thinking that my new D.O.S. will be the beginning of January. Would the VA start paying me in February or March? Thanks for any insight!
