    For all the sheeple out there - jus sayin~ https://www.expressnews.com/business/article/San-Antonio-s-USAA-Bank-hit-with-85-million-15648840.php
  3. Congrats...enjoy the rest of it!
  4. 3. Not entirely correct. Should you take any extended tour 6 mos or greater AD time (i.e. AGR, USERRA and/or LWOP-mil) will count ONLY if you buy it back (for retirement purposes) or pay the equivalent Civ missed FERS deposits.
  5. Sorta correct - a few more variables than you make it sound, but its a plan. For starters, the $5k/yr $125,000 "double dip" theory isn't free. You do have to buy back the FERS time you missed to get retirement monies for it (currently at a rate of 3% mil earnings). It accrues interest if not paid back within 3 yrs/ - of course many already know you cannot collect a AD ret (7200 pnts) and combine that time with a FERS retirement - so, there is an ART (no pun intended) to maximizing the govt checks...but when done correctly, you can safely retire well above 6 figures. bcuziknow….;)
  6. No..2008 forward if you want credit for it.
  7. I hope someone copied the long post I just did...accidentally deleted it? still trying to figure out this site.
  8. What part of this do you all not get? “I’m still active duty and thus don’t qualify for USERRA protection”
  9. BLUF: As you suggested “obviously get the help you need” Re; sleep issues and CPAP - it’s not the “easy rating” some say, it actually requires a rather scientific sleep study which will determine if you in fact have sleep apnea, to what degree, and whether you might require a CPAP or BiPAP machine. If your definition of “panacea” is a 50% rating (requiring CPAP/BiPAP machine) which = $1000ish mo tax free the rest of your life (plus other various benefits), then it’s all relative. NOTE TO SELF: Bilateral plantar fasciitis now = 50% $1000ish mo tax free the rest of your life (plus other various benefits). As for your original “Use caution with sleep issue” - see 4. Above jus sayin~
  10. 1. Why “transitioning” after 17? I would first question this decision, but I get the various options so the “advice” requires this info - Independently Wealthy? Forced? Airline secured? AGR? ART? 2. The “TAP VA rep” is NOT a VA employee. 3. You can successfully collect VA disability monies and benefits while a participating member of the AFR. And thousands do! 4. You can “add” to a current VA disability claim at any time (years down the road) as long as you have a nexus to the claim within your mil medical record. 5. You can/probably should apply for VA disability benefits (assuming you have qualifying medical conditions) if not now, once you’re gained in the reserves. jus sayin~
