    The unfortunate answer is that you don't. I tried to call about my case being at the SAFPC (which I thought would be ok, since it was separate from the MEB), but I still got the answer to talk to you PEBLO. They will also generate a " help ticket" and you and the PEBLO get an emailed copy of it...

    The case manager is in charge of multiple people's cases (possibly for multiple bases, but I don't know how they assign case loads). They only work through that PEBLO and their job does not include talking to anyone except the PEBLO. If you are having an issue with the PEBLO, you can ask to...

    The case manager is at AFPC and they handle the admin things like getting the paperwork to the VA, your PEBLO, and whoever else may need it. They are also the ones who finalize your retirement dates and make your orders. You will not know who your case manager is since they will only talk to the...

    I got 30PTDY (I'm "overseas") and 60 terminal. I didn't dare ask for more because I was so excited that I got 60. My final out is 26Feb. HarrinJ, it looks like you got more leave approved? Congrats!

    SAFPC Grade Determination Timeline?

    No. A rank determination is for people who lost rank (admin demotion) during the MEB process or because of their medical condition. If the SAFPC office deems that you satisfactorily served in the higher grade, then you get retired at that grade. It does not have an effect on high 3 pay or...

    I checked the leave AFI and it doesn't really say how many days of terminal we are allowed. Does anyone know the max you can take? The AFI is written like you have to sell back 60 in your career before you get any, but we know that isn't true.

    Mine was a rank determination and I read somewhere that those were priority. :/

    Just got my orders today too! Retire 28May, so I am guessing my final out will be 28Feb? I have been able to get on vMPF using this link. https://ww3.afpc.randolph.af.mil/vmpf/Hub/Pages/Hub.asp It was posted in the comments section where it says the programs are "intermittent."

    Joining the MEB waitlist

    You should get another Mypers message when the package is forwarded to the VA. Once that is done, the package goes back to AFPC where they apply the ratings and then another Mypers message when ratings are ready (with your PEBLO). I know somewhere it says the VA will mail you your ratings, and...

    Diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (Mild) during MEB

    Fibro and different degrees of mental health distress definitely go hand in hand (which is why I know the AF requires you to see a psych if you get a fibro dx). What are you trying to accomplish by changing your dx? Have you tried another doctor to get a third opinion? You may end up being put...

    Should I pay out of pocket?

    Your PCM could have diagnosed you initially and began treatment, but you will need to see rheumo before your MEB can move forward. My doctor went with Cymbalta because it helps with depression and pain in some people.

    Adams- Congrats on at getting orders. I hope your amendment goes through quickly. Questions to help those of us who are still waiting: How did you get orders if the system is down? Did they email you or were they given to the PEBLO? Did they give you an alternate way to outprocess since the...

    MEB questions running out of time, ets date is approaching

    Pittpan's advice is solid so listen to him. I only got 30 days con lv when I had mine, with 6 weeks of toe touch on crutches. I believe I started Physical Therapy around 2 weeks post op. It really depends on the surgeon but 30 days seems to be the extent of con lv without complications. Most of...

    MEB questions running out of time, ets date is approaching

    You can try to talk to your patient advocate, but ultimately AFPC (if you are AF) gets to make the decision. I don't want you to get your hopes up, especially with such a short amount of time left.

    MEB questions running out of time, ets date is approaching

    I had the same surgery done a few years back, and they gave me 6 months after to recover before they would even consider "fixing" the other side because the outcome is unknown. The MEB process cannot go forward in most cases if your condition is "unstable" as yours still is since you are within...

    MILPDS and a few other sites have been deemed unavailable as seen on the right side of the AF Portal page so we won't be hearing anything until that is corrected and they deal with their backlog. My SAFPC decision came back 8Jan and my stuff was sent back up for orders same day and I haven't...

    @Andrewchrist and JohnyLu I am at that base too...Following you all to see how long it is taking for you to get orders here. I am not sure, but I think case managers are assigned by base?
