Step 1: The VA takes your medical over the day after discharge.
There is no compensation for any disability while on active duty. They will pay you from the date of separation. Did you have the issue when you went into service? Help us to understand this question a little more.

Thanks

my va disability was retroactive to the day after the end of my enlistment, i don't know that this has changed. i think the earliest retro date you can get is the day after the end of your enlistment but others chime in here

Johnson, you are currently 100 percent.
It appears to me you were paid from the day after separation from the Navy.
Do you know what the 100 percent rating is for?

If you have other issues that can be attributed to service, then you may be able to pursue additional benefits like Special monthly compensation for serious disabilities.

You should get your records and also get an Idependant medical opinion for the Heart issue. Sone infections are known to lead to heart diseases.
You can directly ask for them from Saint Louis and bypass the VA.
Hope this helps.
