    Good News: "More than 133,000 vets may qualify for this tax refund windfall"

    I am sorry to hear of your problems (both medical and in getting properly compensated). Without knowing all of the details of your case, it seems to me that you may well benefit from the law and notification from DoD referenced in the original post. (This is still not enough- I don't see...

    PDBR still going? And email address

    The PDBR is still operating. It seems you petitioned and applied for correction of your records (somewhat) successfully, through the BCNR. This is a complicating issue for a potential further appeal through the PDBR. Would really need to know a lot more about your case to offer more input.

    RATINGS AFTER TWO WEEKS - WEIRD, OR NORMAL?

    Okay...reason I asked is, if he was close to 20 years, a fit finding might have been a preferable outcome. Based on where he is career-wise, my concerns were implicated. The good news is that he has nothing to lose by challenging the findings. As an aside, a Formal hearing is not guaranteed...

    RATINGS AFTER TWO WEEKS - WEIRD, OR NORMAL?

    This is just anecdotal, but, there seems to be a lot of adverse findings, above the norm, coming out of the Navy PEB process over the past several months. What is your husband's grade and years of service?

    MST MEDBOARD

    I have recently come across several Navy cases where a pregnancy resulted in rejection of the case at the PEB level. I disagree with this action and think there may be challenges that could change the processing. But, for now, my inclination is to think that pregnancy while in the DoN DES...

    MEB conditions worsening

    It may stop your IDES case and the PEB might return your case to the MTF for further processing. Technically, when you ask about a "delay or stop" of the MEB, once the case is forwarded to the PEB, the MEB portion of the case is completed. If you want to raise this issue, I would generally do...

    C&P EVAL

    If found unfit for this condition by the DoD, you will be rated at the minimum temporary rating of 50% (under 38 CFR § 4.129).

    The Beginning of the End

    Many decisions (both BCMR and Court cases) use this language. I am not sure it is accurate or "good law" any longer given: "(a) Utilization of VA schedule for rating disabilities in determinations of disability. (1) In making a determination of disability of a member of the armed forces for...

    VA Ratings

    NWA...good reference! (When I was leaving the Army, I was driving my boss to lunch in downtown San Antonio. I put the windows down and blasted Straight Outta Compton on the radio....he looked at me funny, but didn't say anything).

    I disagree with VA findings...Now what?

    I don't know exactly what is going on with your case. So, I can only speculate and provide input on what you state. Well, if you don't have your DoD rating, then you don't what conditions were found unfitting. So, I don't know whether you should appeal to the Formal PEB before potentially...

    I disagree with VA findings...Now what?

    If you mean within the IDES system, your remedy is to request a VA Rating Reconsideration Request (VARR). As to whether "they combined them" it would take reviewing the decisions to figure this out. (Note that if there are conditions you might think are unfitting but were not so found by the...

    Appeal Hearing "attendance"

    The first comment I have is regarding your appeal to get "that last 10%." Just want to ensure you are tracking that with the IDES system, the percentages are determined by the VA, while unfitness is determined by the PEB. So, if you are going to have a Formal PEB, understand that the only issue...

    Hard to say without knowing more. I don't know enough about your case and your situation to hazard a guess. Also, not sure what your goals are. Might be better if you post a thread discussing your questions and the facts of your situation. Best of luck to you!
