    Panic Attack

    You’ll need to see mental health and establish some history with them. I think that perhaps with 6 months or more of visits/notes there may be enough to start a MEB. You can be meb’d For anxiety but you’ll need a bit of history being seen for it.

    petition for relief - even worth the fight?

    I understand what you mean. Nobody can be totally sure if the PEBs intent. I went for the FPEB (Army) and a Lieutenant colonel on the board wanted to know how I had top notch officer Evals.... it was easy for me, I was a recruiting company commander at the time and despite my disability, my...

    petition for relief - even worth the fight?

    I’m sorry for what this process is doing for your family. I went through a MEB that took around 14 months. I lost my health, my career, lost my father and almost lost my marriage all in the same time. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. If your husbands neuro is going to initiate another MEB...

    TERA Vs. CH 61 *post-FPEB Implications

    TERA is the best option but what is the likelihood of it? As far as I know the TERA authorization is ending this year. Army has pretty much ended it already. Not sure about the other branches.

    Denied SSDI because i'm on AD still.

    An example using my own scenario. SS wanted to know the date I “stopped working”. They were only asking because they were in fact approving me. I became more and more disabled progressively over time as a result of a degenerative neurological disease. So it wasn’t like an IED attack injury where...

    Denied SSDI because i'm on AD still.

    Jason I completely agree with everything you said about the individual circumstances being critical. However, what we see here on PEB forum are posts without a lot of details and in a big picture we typically see many denied SSDI on active duty and very few granted. So you are correct it is not...

    Denied SSDI because i'm on AD still.

    While it is possible to get SSDI on active duty it’s unlikely. I was awarded SSDI about 5 months after retiring and they used my terminal leave date as the starting point of my being disabled. I didn’t appeal as I didn’t want to go through the whole judge thing...

    WTH, Lady?!? C&P Fiasco!

    Florida injured combat is 100% correct on getting your existing dr that is treating you to fill out a DBQ!!!! When it comes down to it, the VA must take that over the QTC docs DBQ because you have a history with your doc, your doc knows you a lot better than a QTC doc who has only seen you...

    Adding conditions after PEB but before signing a 199

    It is unlikely to happen after the PEB. Not impossible, but it requires the PEB to remand the case back to the Meb to add conditions. I was successful in doing so but only because of a misdiagnosis at the VA CP exam. Talk to your lawyer.
