LWOP back pay for disability retirement


Q. I have recently been granted disability retirement under PL-253 special provisions due to being medically retired out of the National Guard. The process involved me being put into a leave without pay status for the past three years. Am I entitled to recoup the LWOP wages due to the approval of my retirement?

A. Your last day of pay is the commencing date for your disability annuity.
