I guess I'm just not understanding the process. I was told it would take 7 days to be determined fit or unfit. Its now been 14 and no one seems to have any answers as of this morning. My IDES dashboard updated and now has a date of 12/4/17 and check next to MEB. And the current step has moved to IPEB. Any help understanding would be appreciated. Thanks
The IPEB can not issue a decision without critical input from the VA. The VA rates all contentions. DoD uses the VA validated contentions and ratings to make an unfit/fit decision and if unfit a DoD rating based on the unfit condition(s) and the VA rating of those conditions found unfitting. The VA process is critical to the IPEB.
