Just wanting to get advice/ information about the MED process. I am starting mine the 22nd of August. I have ankylosing spondylitis and was told that due to my medication that I would most likely be found unfit for full duty. Just wondering the time line for the whole thing and what kind of rating I could potentially see?
I am a 100% P&T SC USMC veteran working on getting VA access and eventually compensation for my son who contracted Type 1 Diabetes somewhere between MEPS and Ft Knox for boot camp. He was forced out of the Army in 1999 prior to completing boot camp and was told that his diabetes was pre-existing.
If you have any references I would appreciate the help.

I appreciate the ping-pong back and forth as far as updates on our statuses are going.
Hopefully my case worker can get my Orders cut pretty quickly. I’ve read a few here had theirs cut next day. That’s fast!

Do you happen to know when I would be notified from DFAS as to my election choice, regular retirement or accept medical?
LDOLT wrote on bleacherspy's profile.
I saw you were medically retired when you had over 20 years of service and were rated at 100%. I am in the same boat with 21 years of service and the DFAS website calculator says they reduce my retirement pay and I don't get the concurrent VA payment. Is this true or a mistake? When I punched in 100% rate it reduced my retirement from 52.5% all the way down to like 20% which seems wrong. I appreciate any info!

Hi Sir, Could you help me with my post when you have a chance? Thank you in advance. http://www.pebforum.com/threads/va-rating-help-needed.47767/ Also, do you know if the PEB usually concurs with the MEB findings?
