    Disability Retirement Pay Question

    Advertisements
    Okay, so I'm researching this and I can't find a straight answer, even on the DFAS site. I'm hoping someone knows or can direct me to an official site that explains it.

    As far as I understand it disability pay is calculated in two ways:

    Number of years in service x 2.5% x retired pay base
    retired pay base x disability rating (percentage)

    Whichever is higher is what is paid while on Temporary Disabled List with a minimum of 50% of the Retired Pay Base.

    Is that right?

    Lissa, here's a site I just found. It seems too complicated for me right now with my super fun headache, but maybe it has what you are looking for on it?

    http://www.military.com/Resources/Re...background.htm

    I'll keep looking later if you still don't have an answer though.

    Thanks Schaele, this site is unfortunately out of date. I'm pretty sure it's right based on http://usmilitary.about.com/cs/gener...ementpay_3.htm but I prefer to get my sources from official DOD sites you know? Homefront, OneSource, etc. don't seem to have it explicitely covered.
