PSC-RPM-3 manages the Coast Guard’s Reserve Incapacitation Benefit (RIB) system for ill and injured reservists and acts as the Coast Guard’s Benefits Issuing Authority (BIA) for Medical Hold (Med Hold) orders, Active Duty for Health Care (ADHC) orders, Notices of Eligibility (NOE) and incapacitation pay. The primary references used to determine eligibility for benefits are: the Reserve Policy Manual, COMDTINST1001.28(series) and DoDI 1241.01. In addition, the Reserve Medical Job Aid includes a summary of the above benefits and other helpful information for commands and members.
Reservists who are receiving VA disability compensation are not entitled to receive military pay and allowances (active duty or IDT) at the same time. Any reservist receiving VA disability compensation must elect to receive military pay and allowances or VA compensation through annual submission of a waiver form to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The Notice of Waiver of VA Compensation or Pension to Receive Military Pay and Allowances VA Form 21-8951-2 is used to elect a waiver of VA Compensation or military pay and allowances. VA form 21-8951-2 must be completed each fiscal year by the member, endorsed by the member's unit CO, and submitted to the VA regional office responsible for the member's VA claim file.
If you have questions or need assistance with completing VA Form 21-8951-2, please contact the VA at 1-800-827-1000
