New DoD Timelines for IDES process
  • 34,732

The Department of Defense recently updated the timelines for processing of IDES cases. The resource for DoD Directive-Type Memorandum (DTM)-18-004 – “Revised Timeliness Goals for the Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES)," can be found here: https://www.pebforum.com/resources/...04-revised-timeliness-goals-for-the-ides.100/ I intend to post a detailed timeline at each phase in the future. For now, know that the overall processing of IDES cases should be processed faster (from 295 days to 230 days- basically, two months faster). Note the effective date is July 30, 2018.

campfire.jpg Just a heads up on a few tidbits of information that may be of interest to folks! First, the Army is apparently consolidating the PEB sites to San Antonio (Joint Base San Antonio-Sam Houston). I have heard from two sources that the Army is moving all PEB operations to JBSA San Antonio. This includes the Army Physical Disability Agency. Next, it is my understanding that the Coast Guard is working on a separate agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs to implement an "IDES-like" system, where the Coastie will be rated by the VA for any conditions found unfitting by the Coast Guard. This is technically not the IDES, but the end result is supposed to be the same.

This SECNAVINST was issued yesterday. My cursory review is that it is generally in accordance with law and regulations. However, I have deep concerns about the execution of this Instruction.

Saunders v United States

Jason Perry submitted a new resource: Saunders v United States - Federal Court of Appeals case stating pain is a basis for VA compensation
This case is very important. First, as far as its impact, it is a decision of a three judge case before the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. This is a court above the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (and one level of judicial review below the US Supreme Court). This case may be appealed to the Supreme Court, but, for now, this case is binding law. As far as substance, it is HUGE. The reason for this is two-fold. First, it impacts a huge number of cases. Second, it states...
