    Post PEB Upgrades

    Hello fellow PEBers. I was medically retired for my knee in 2012 at 30% combat related and 40% VA. Although I am happy with the rating and retirement, the Army seems to have missed the slipped disks in y back... or more accurately, I did not know about them and just thought I had a stiff back...

    Compensation Calulator

    I know there are probably already some of these out there, but I was playing around with excel to determine how my rating would be effected if another condition is added and came up with this quick calculator. I believe this is the exact method the VA and DoD use the provider ratings to...

    Will my spouse lose dissability if they use vocational rehab?

    Yeah, that's kind of in the works still. Here is what I received from the VA two days ago: Dear Mr. Sean Schwartz, Once the attached documents are processed a Certificate of Eligibility should be sent to you on completion.The documents that you sent attached to your email were printed out...

    Will my spouse lose dissability if they use vocational rehab?

    Yep, I need that book. Voc rehab counselor claimed that my degree was too marketable and that she could not approve any more education. Maybe I need to phrase things differently, but I was medically retired at 30%DoD, and 40% VA. I graduated from West Point in 2008 with a BS in Mech Engineering...

    VA disability effected by post military employment

    If I am under the correct understanding, VA Disability has nothing to do with your income. It is compensation not due necessarily to your employability, but due to your employability in the armed forces, and your decreased quality fof life. Now if you were to want to go back into the Armed...

    DoD retirement and VA disability pay???

    UI is what he meant, Unemployment Insurance. It is what we all call just unemployment, but the state governments are allowed to draw from a government fund, versus a state fund if the unemployment is being awarded to a veteran. I jsut did this research last night lol, so it is a little fresh...

    VA checking up on you? Pictures?

    Well first off, they will have to prove that you are not as bad as you say. Just taking pictures of you lifting something or running doesn’t mean that you are not hurting yourself more by doing it. Me personally, I could probably bend my knee more than the VA Doc's ROM test, but would I have...

    Mississippi, Call Mrs. Boyd to see if she has received your packet to ensure that your PEBLO sent it back to your PEB and that the PEB then sent it to PDA (It should literally take about 1-2 days for this step). If she has received your case then try and get it expedited. Explain to her the...

    Yeah she tried that with me and said there were only certain circumstances. I guess my case met them. She didnt tell me all of them, but I do remember she said something about school or children starting school somewhere else. Quick question for anyone out there: I think I saw somewhere that...

    You can call PDA and see if Mrs. Boyd will expedite it (nothing to lose). Phone number 877 577 3065, press two for retirement and seperations. You might have to call a few times to get her, but she will ask for your social and look your case up. Literally, the day after I called to expedite...

    Brother Burt, the way I understand it is as soon as your orders come down and your transition/in and out processing station receives them, they are supposed to call you (like within 24 hours) to schedule your final counseling. I scheduled my final counseling for the same day (15 June) and from...

    Fort Polk timeline ~ 395 Days

    Well, since I am not eligible due to my service time I have to wait until I have proof of an honorable discharge and 30 active duty days with a service connected medical discharge. I am not eligible because I went to West Point and am still in my ADSO time (< 5 years). I should get 100% from...
