No , I am not getting any retirement pay, but the IRR retired me when after 7 years in the IRR I was not selected for promotion to 0-5 since I was not involved in any training or active service. So yes I recived papaers stating I was retired from the IRR , and I turn 60 in one month, but no I am not getting any retirement checks. So in total I have about 24 years of combined active duty and IRR affiliation. Be getting the checks from VSI like clock work until this month when nothing came.
Well that would make sense but I have no idea., and I doubt I am that lucky. So you tell me if I had 16 years of active duty and approximately 6 or 7 years of IRR would that quailify me for a retirement check? If so wouldn't I get some sort of indication that the VSI would stop and retiement check would start and would I need to pay back the money I already got from the VSI payment first?
Thank you, one last question about retirement. All I did was let the IRR know where I lived. In spite of the fact that I called and wrote to return to active duty after 9/11 I never had any addtional contact with the service other than I got the VSI check every year. So in your experience would I be eligible for a reserve retirement and if so shouldn't someone let me know that they would like to send me a retirement check and withhold my VSI. If that is the case I actually could pay back my VSI payments and get the retirement check which although I did not think I would qualify for would be kind of sweet at this point. If I should get a retirement check and pay back my VSI payments who shoild I talk to?
