I am a Air National Guardsman on active duty awaiting a MEB

I am a Air National Guardsman on active duty awaiting a MEB board for 3 service connected disabilities. I already have a VA rating of 100%. I expect my my military rating will certainly be in excess of 30%. Do I have to wait for age 60 before I get any benefits? I know I can get VA disability pay but I worry about medical coverage for my 2 dependents once im medically retired. All 3 of my board-able service connected issues occurred on active duty in the middle east. PTSD, TBI and residuals, Brain Neoplasm and residuals and my double knee issues will likely be added. The list on the VA side is much longer.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Im a Michigan Air National GuardsmanJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: They are uncooperative. My Dad initiated a JAG, IG and Congressional on the Medical Group as they took years in some cases to get LOD's signed and 5 years to get this med board going.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so, memory issues...lol
