Petitioning US Military Retirement System

Cease the deduction of VA Disability from Retirement Pay

This is for all retirees who are receiving VA Disability in conjunction with your retirement pay. If your situation is the same as mines then we need to get this law changed. When I started receiving my VA Disability compensation my retirement check was reduced by the amount of the VA Disability compensation I was granted. This means in all actuality that we have not received one cent for our military disability. Your VA compensation should have nothing to do with our retirement pay. So what we are doing is paying our own VA disability out of our retirement pension. This is not right. This unfair law has to be changed and everyone in this situation should received their backpay and should be radioactive. So lets work on getting this unfair law changed and get compensated for the injuries we received while on active duty serving our country. This is the appreciation we received for our many years of loyal and dedicated service to our country. The Government keep saying how proud they are of our man and women in the Armed Forces, then prove it by paying us what we are entitled to.
