Phase-In of Full Concurrent Receipt of Military Retired Pay and Veterans Disability Compensation for Certain Military Retirees
Document Number: 05-13396
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2005-07-07
Agency: Department of Veterans Affairs
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is proposing to amend its regulations concerning concurrent receipt of military retired pay and veterans' disability compensation. This proposed rule implements section 641 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2004 (Public Law 108-136). This law permits certain veterans who are entitled to military retired pay and are receiving disability compensation for a service-connected disability or disabilities rated at 50 percent or higher to receive disability compensation as well as their military retired pay. The intended effect of the proposed regulation is to clearly state who is eligible for concurrent receipt of disability compensation and military retired pay, who must still waive military retired pay to receive disability compensation, and how to file such a waiver.
