I thought I would post my timeline since I've made some progress as of yesterday. I am closing in on the end of the process, though I may still have some time, I am glad the majority of waiting is over with. This site has been a HUGE help!

*MEB Started- End of Jan/Beginning of Feb

*VA appts Completed - Feb 28th

*NARSUM Signed and Packaged Completed/Sent - April 28th

*PEB accepts package (MOL message) - May 11th

*VA recieves package from PEB - June 5th

*VA completes proposed ratings/closes claim/sends package back to PEB - July 6th
(Ebenefits changed -historical claim appeared, also Vets.gov lists claim as closed and completed)

I hope this helps some of the other service members with similar time lines!

Thanks for the timeline! I am not too far behind you. When the PEB sent your package to the VA did they open a second claim on ebenefits/vets.gov? And if so, you know about how long after the PEB sent it, did it actually appear in the online account?

So it turns out the PEB sent it to the VA roughly June 2nd-3rd because the VA received it on June 5th. The historical claim didn't show up until the VA had literally finished the proposed ratings and sent it back to the PEB. I'm not sure if it was the same day or not, but according to EBenefits and Vets.gov they finished it on July 6th, mailed it back to PEB July 6th, then updated online July 6th. None of this info was available until yesterday. I had no clue what date the VA received my package from the PEB until yesterday when they finished everything and sent it back. Looking now, I see it took the VA almost exactly a month to do the ratings. Hope this helps.

Awesome, yea that helps out a lot. Eases my mind some, and makes me pull back from checking ebenefits 100 times a day. Does the second claim only list your unfitting conditions?

The second claim is identical to the other claim. Mirror image. So you learn nothing, all you learn is that it's complete and sent.
