A followup review of military disability retirement processing was conducted.

Both the current and prior reviews show that the military departments are not uniform in processing disability retirements and separations. There has been a lack of monitoring and enforcement by the Department of Defense (DOD) to assure uniform consideration and disposition of the disabled members. There are significant differences among the departments between the elapsed time periods for preparing retirement orders following the retirement determination and for establishing effective dates of retirements. There are also inconsistencies among the military departments in the processing of disability cases for members with terminal medical conditions.
