So per the AFPC Disabilities office, the official word is that the order processing system was, in fact, down for 4 days last week. It is back up now. This did create a backlog and many people should start seeing retirement orders sent to their PEBLO in the coming week. They stated that my particular case/orders should be complete NLT that COB 13 OCT (tomorrow). We shall see.
I called AFPC again this morning and they assured me that my orders would be done today and in vMPF. The guy I talked to on the phone even put the name of the person at separations who said they would do it today in the notes for the call. I have called a few times this week and the people I have talked to haven't been annoyed haha.
