    What options do I have, if any?

    I wasn't told about any resources when I started this, not 12 years ago initially and not now with the pdbr. if someone had given me ANY information or resources, I would have been grateful for an assist. Mr. Perry, since I've offended you to your core, please remove me from this forum...

    What options do I have, if any?

    what? seriously. yes. they are commercial, but he did say he is was willing to pay for services to try to figure out something. he wont get more from the VA than 100%. pdbr isnt beneficial in this case. maybe getting someone else involved is the answer. I'll let the original poster decide if...

    What options do I have, if any?

    try valued veterans consulting group. there are other groups that do this kind of thing but I've heard good things in particular about this one. google that name or call them at 619-822-2070. no, I'm not a client nor a rep for them. I just have heard other veterans stories about them.

    PDBR UPDATE

    I got my envelope on Tuesday, just got a call today (Friday) from HQDA SSO asking me for a copy of my dd214 and sep orders. he told me that they have 120 days to process the order, then said it probably wouldn't take 30 days. then I'd get a letter with further instructions on the rest. he did...

    I think because you have to actually file a request for a change in rating. because the VA rating chan go up or down depending on how long it's been since your original claim. they won't automatically re rate you. I dont know why they send it to the VA other than maybe if you use the VA as your...

    the review board's decision will not affect your VA disability rating. you would have to resubmit to the VA for a rating change.

    I'm already gathering my VA award letters where it says they held back pay for the recoupment of severance to when they said I was done paying it. next I'm going to get records from the bank (I hope they go back that far!) to show how much was deposited up to when to show the corresponding...

    my outcome doesn't really change much for me as my husband was active duty for 20+ years and retired last year. all this does for me is gives me s blue ID card instead of brown dependent one. and probably a bill for the severance pay I've already paid back.

    thank you. I will try to contact Jason. I was an E5 with 4.5 yrs active duty service so I know I'm not qualified for concurrent receipt.

    yes, the letter does state medical retirement. at this point my timeline was ~18months from application submission to reciept of letter. my VA award was about 3 months after my discharge so that might have helped. I'm a little concerned that now instead of getting anything money wise I'm...

    Response from PDBR

    ok... got my letter today. I'm more confused now than ever. they're recharacterizing my separation as a discharge but at a 30% rate so I think my VA pay is going to be higher. I'm not qualified for concurrent receipt.

    how long was the time from when your case was sent to the Army for their decision to when you got this notice? I was told by the board that my info was sent to the Army on 2 May. I havent heard anything from anyone since. I did ask the board why this process is so secretive and why we arent...
