My husband was asked to not reenlist back in 2011. He was honorably discharged and had a nice separation pay. He started to receive disability pay in 2012. They started taking the disability pay to pay back the separation pay at the end of 2013. We've never been able to understand why this is and the VA isn't much help. Has anyone gone through this? If you have do you know why we have to pay back the separation pay? If I remember correctly we weren't given a choice of separation pay and no disability or no pay and disability. I don't understand the thinking behind this.
