Q: I have a question about compensation?
A: See this: Compensation Q & A
Q: What is my chances to get xx% compensation?
A: The serverity of your condition/how many unfitting conditions are submitted/whoever does your boar/what is in your records. It would be a guess on my part at best.
Q: I received a military rating < 30%, should I appeal?
A: I would, you have nothing to loose, even if they rate you as 0% your severance pay will be the same.
Q: I received a military rating > 30%...
SO I got 40% DOD for a permanent medical retirement.
And I don't know the breakdown, but I do know that I'll be getting 100% VA disability.
SO THAT'S EXCITING.
I'll be out of the military by Halloween. I'm a little in shock.
August 12 - (not pictured) Receive email saying my package was sent to the disability operations branch.
August 26, 3:36 pm - I am notified that my findings are back with the PEBLO.
August 26, 3:52 pm - another email (identical to the first one from august 12) saying my package was sent to the disability operations branch again.
I’m confused, are my IPEB findings back with the PEBLO? Did it take them 2 weeks to realize my package was incomplete and was sent back up 15 minutes later? Maybe...
I'm active duty Air Force (RegAF). My MEB package was sent to AFPC a week ago. I haven't received a notification of fit or unfit yet. However, a VA Rating representative contacted me recently asking for clarification on one of my claimed conditions (not the condition making me unfit for service). The rater said they are working on the rest of my claimed conditions.
Does this mean the IPEB found me unfit for continued service?
From my understanding when the IPEB determines a...
I just checked my tricareonline and saw that my QTC exam just hit the system. The doctor measured me at 60degrees, I have multiple PT documents that indicate 8-10 degrees and even provided them the paperwork.
Does anyone know what I should do at this point?
I'm brand new as a registered member of this great website, however I have been searching for different information on here for a while. Before I get started on my situation, I want to thank those of you with knowledge regarding this process for helping calm my anxiety in advance. I would truly appreciate if anyone can provide me with some knowledge that will help me feel as though there is hope for my situation. Here it goes...
I found out about a week ago, from my Mental Health provider...
I’m going through a MEB and just got the email from Mypers telling me my IPEB results are in and I will be contacted to sign my 1180. I was talking to a friend of mine who also went through the MEB process at the same base. He told me that your VA rating is foreshadowing what your DoD rating could come back as. I was able to call the VA hotline and was told my proposed VA rating is 60%. My friend told me with that 60% from the VA it’s safe to say my DoD rating could come back in some form of...
I am currently recommended for two different conditions, one is plantar fasciitis and the other is severe obstructive sleep apnea that results in hypersomnia.
I have a cpap, but it still hasn't fully help my condition although it helps. I have a permanent profile for both conditions and am actively talking to the doctor for the next step. I am still waiting for my PEBLO, although I am pretty sure I just turned in the last of my medical records. I have had a good amount of FTR and failed to...
Hello everyone! I would like to ask for input regarding my case:
- MEB in 2020
- Would like to be found unfit
- IPEB in 2021 = Fit for full duty
- Appeal submitted and denied
- Next step is the exit interview
My provider told me that I am still not worldwide deployable despite being found fit by the IPEB. I did submit an appeal against the finding but it was denied. I was told by my PEBLO that the VA gave me a rating of 60%. Would I still be able to get this when I get out? My EAOS date is...
Hello, I signed my 618 on the 25th of June, and I got a call from my PEBLO on the 16th of July stating that AFPC sent one of my claims back to the VA for "clarification." QTC then sent me a letter stating that on the 30th of July, an independent medical panel will discuss my claim. Does anyone know what that means, or the timeline to get back to AFPC. I am currently being MEBed and part of the IDES system. The waiting game is what makes everything so difficult, and its pretty hard to plan...
I have been resourcing this site for two months and have gained an enormous amount of knowledge from it. Thank you!
I would greatly appreciate any advice that can be given for my dilemma. I will try to make things as concise as possible.
My husband (USMC 1998-2002, 0351 & AD Army, 2005-present, 11B) was referred to IDES for a "neck condition". He completed 4 C&P exams and received NARSUM August 20, 2015. We consulted with Counsel at the Fort Carson JAG August 22, 2015.
My initial packet went up to AFPC and we just got the results. It stated return to duty but I can only be deployed to the states. We are shocked because my commander, doctor, and psychologist all stated that I should NOT be returned to Active Duty. I had back surgery 3 years ago but the severe back pain came back less than a year later. My back is now worse, cannot be fixed with surgery and all doctors have stated it will not get better. I am missing work because of the pain, I have pain...
Can anyone offers some clarification on how retirement pay is calculated for a reservist who is prior active duty (+ a couple of title 10 mobilizations) who has a retirement point total of right about 6800 points (active duty and mobs equals about 16 years) who was found to be 80% disabled (PDRL) by the PEB? DOD website about Military Compensation at: Disability Retirement states "The multiplier percentage is at the option of the member who may chose either the percentage...
Hello :) well i received my rating... 70TDLR i’m well over 20 years... has anyone appealed TDLR? i don’t want to appeal and they end up lowering my dod rating or the VA rating but i also want to be completely done...
Hello, I currently just received my problem list back to help with my claims for the VA. I notice that things are missing such as my knee problems, sleeping problems and reoccurring migraines I keep experiencing. Should I be worried about adding those type of things on my claim? If so what should I do next to make sure that they are at least documented?
Backstory: Was referred to MEB after I Broke my wrist and completed OT. Chief concern is the lack of rotation of the wrist and non-union of ulnar styloid. Conducted C&P exams, and when I did, because the condition is written as wrist they did not test rotation, since that is covered under the forearm. I got my 199 back on 7 June and they rated me at 10% for my wrist(90% va including my other conditions).
In my research I Believe I have a case for as much as 50% from the forearm. 20%...
I am Permanently Retired due to Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome. I know there are many individuals that don't really know how their case should be handled or have seen very negative files of CECS cases. I am here to alleviate any anxiety you may have if you have any claim that has CECS.
First and foremost, My timeline is in my signature. Please look it over if you are in the IDES process. This is the NORMAL IDES process that should be happening in your case. Anyway...
I have received my proposed ratings from the VA. I was just wondering what the likelihood of them changing and/ or if anyone has experienced their proposed ratings being changed while the case is at PEB. Thank you.
BLUF: Hoping for PDRL
I have questions about whether I will be placed on PDRL or TDRL. My referring condition is for PTSD only. I am VA rated 100% P&T. Of that, 50% is for PSTD. I processed via LDES.
My NARSUM is in and read as follows:
Prognosis Statement Changes in Soldier's symptoms are not expected to significantly improve during the upcoming year. The prognosis for this condition is guarded. It is not likely that he will return to full-duty within the next three years.
Current AD AF, Recently I recieved the FULL MEB recommendation from HQ AFPC. The next step in the process is to gather all of the pertinent docs with a suspense of SEP 25 for the IPEB.
With that information, I have a few questions.
What is my timeline looking next?
Anyone going through/completed these steps recently and can explain the IPEB during these COVID times?
How long is this IPEB taking these days? I'm overseas, are C&P still continued, are they T-Con?
I am looking for...
So I’ve been down a long, injured filled road with my knees. L knee had an ACL reconstruction in 2008, and a scope that removed 20% of my meniscus in 2010. R knee had an ACL reconstruction in 2011, everything was resolved, enlisted in 2012. Re injured my R ACL again in 2015 at Campbell. It hasn’t been the same and I’ve learned to live with discomfort and pain but it’s continued to get worse and worse since I deployed in 2019. Finally got on profile, everything’s at own pace...
Received DA 199 yesterday.
From the DOD I am receiving:
*Behavioral Health= 70% (TRDL) by law
*Migraines= 30% (Permanent)
Combined= 80% (TRDL) + available for CRSC.
VA Ratings Proposed: (unsure of it its P&T since nothing was mentioned in their Proposed ratings except the Educational Benefits for P&T soldiers for dependents that they added)
Spoke to the lawyer today and was mentioned that if I need more time (as I do)- to submit a VARR for Migraines @ 30% to 50%. All supporting...
I have been in the Navy for 15+ years and was diagnosed with Major Depression and Social Anxiety Disorder. My GAF score is 51-60 Moderate to severe. My issues have been well documented in my medical recored dating back to year 2000. My narsum indicates intense anxiety type reactions to stress even minimal amounts. I am wondering if anyone has any experience with the PEB findings regarding this type of diagnosis. Any information would be great. My package will be sent off no later than friday...
I was previously told that the VA comes up with a “proposed rating” after all my exams are done and they send that to the VA and PEB in Washington D.C. for the PEB. I was hoping to get this number to get an idea of the ballpark rating I could expect. But my PEBLO has no idea what I’m talking about and said that I will have to wait until the PEB makes its decision to know what rating I will have. Does anyone know if the “proposed rating” exists and how to find out what it is? My...
So the purpose of me writing here is to see if there is any actual point in me putting in an application for AFROTC. I have an appointment for my physical to attach to my application this coming week.
I'm an Army Veteran, I'm out of my IRR time frame, and I'm currently attending a university that has an AFROTC program. I have a VA disability and some stuff in my medical records that I fear will be disqualifying. I'm 28 and have had postpartum depression twice now with each of my...
