VA rating and severance pay?

I went thought med board and was found unfit. My unfit condition only got 10 percent but my combined VA rating was 70 percent. Am I getting severant pay or will I be paid the amount monthly for a 70 percent rating

    You got a MILITARY rating of less than 30% so you are going to be given a medical separation and they will hand you some money. That is one pot of money. You then apply to the VA and they give you a DISABILITY RATING and they pay you based on that. That is a second pot of money. If you apply for Social Security Disability then you could get money there too. That is a third pot of money.

    You may get severance if under 30%. If for some reason you do get severance, you will not get disability payments until the severance pay is cleared.
