Medical Discharge


Hi all,

I was medically discharged under AFPS 15 on February 17th at a Tier 1 discharge. I was wondering if there is any information as to how long the medical lump sum payout normally takes to be administered.
Any advice you boys can give would be greatly appreciated.

They (Veterans UK) say that it will be up to 30 working days before benefits are paid but other posters report that the average is more like 20 working days.


Femoral neck stress fractures are a very serious, and very difficult problem. The short answer to your question is yes, a medical discharge is a very possible (even likely) outcome of the process.

This having been said, every case is different. Your own result is going to depend upon two things, one of which you control and one of which you don't.
