TREA has joined VFW, WWP, NMFA, MOAA, and FRA by submitting a letter of support for H.R. 5995, the Major Richard Star Act.
Currently, concurrent receipt is only eliminated for retirees who are rated 50% disabled or greater. Remaining to be approved are those who are 40% disabled and below, and those who were unable to complete 20 years of service due to service-connected injuries or illness.
TREA has long argued that retired pay and VA service-connected disability compensation are fundamentally different benefits, granted for different reasons. Military retired pay is an earned benefit for vested years of service. Service-connected disability compensation is for injury. To deny retired pay because of a disability is an injustice.
TREA looks forward to working with Congressman Bilirakis to move this bill forward in the 116th Congress. A copy of the letter can be found in the attachment.
TREA members should contact there Member of Congress and ask them to cosponsor H.R. 5995.
Note: TREA also continues to support concurrent receipt as contained in H.R. 333 and H.R. 303.
