MAN! I signed my 199 July 18th. It was received at PDA on the 19th of July. Got an email today from someone at the PDA (insider) stating that my case is pending final review and signature. This is frustrating.
It is very frustrating! I've called my PEBLO atleast 3 times a week to find out if anything had changed. I would just keep calling and checking if I were you! And if you're only waiting on final review and signature then I'm sure you will have it VERY soon! My case was assigned, reviewed and signed on the same day! Where are you stationed? Best of luck with everything!

What is the TRANSPOC means?
TRANSPROC = Transition Point Processing. Basically, each installation has a transition office and retirement services office. Once your case has been through the PDA and receives the SecArmy's approval, your name will come up on the TRANSPROC list, which notifies the transitions/retirement service that they can generate separation/retirement orders and DD 214 for you.

In my case, it took approximately 42 days for approval. Being you just signed your DA 199 about two weeks ago, be prepared to wait at least another 3-4 weeks. Historically, it only took 7-10 days to receive orders after signature. Due to a "system failure"earlier this year, the PDA, according to my transition office and PEBLO, is still working on cases from late July-early August. Maybe yours will be one of the ones that slips through the cracks and gets pushed up early. After 4 weeks, I'd contact my PEBLO, their supervisor, etc., to get updates. If necessary, get the Ombudsman.

What the Ombudsman can do for me in this case?

The Ombudsman will be able to get in touch with those higher-ups within IDES and the PDA on your behalf since most of them will only provide obscure phone numbers or email addresses that are overflown with messages from dozens of people like you. The Ombudsman, along with your chain of command, may be able to pinpoint the issue and get a favorable result.

It will most likely affect the relationship if you go directly above their head. I would try to resolve the issue at the lowest level before getting gung-ho and going straight to the Ombudsman, Hospital Commander, etc. See if your PEBLO can resolve it first, then consult with their supervisor, and then with the Ombudsman. A lot of times they will ask if you've utilized lower levels before coming to them.

There’s a website you can go to. Look up ‘Army IDES dashboard’ and I believe you’ll get the link on the first web search page.

As for your appointment with the MSC, you’ll do what you already said but they have no knowledge of your NLT Date. You can talk with your PEBLO, the PDA, or your Post Retirement Services office for that. Even then you won’t get a specific date until you hit the TRANSPROC list and they’re able to generate orders from what the SecArmy and PDA give.
