    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    When did you find out that your rating was permanent and total? My proposed rating of 90% didn't say anything about being temporary but it also didn't say permanent.

    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    Been away for a while but the process is finally over. Hands down the most stressful paperwork sh*t show I have ever dealt with. Finally have my DD214, got my severance pay and now I'm just waiting for the VA to "finalize" my rating which should be adjusted to 100% from what my PEBLO told me...

    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    FINALLY!! 20% DOD/ 90% VA My PEBLO said I could fight it at a formal board and most likely get over 30% on the DoD and 100% VA so I could retire but I am so sick and tired of this process and I don't want to drag it out another 3-6 months. I'm already living in Dallas and started my new job...

    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    I was hoping that I'd have good news by now - but I just found out that my rater issued a deferred rating (?) and requested an additional exam...for something I didn't even claim. It's like they are determined to drag this out as long as possible. On a positive note, I called the VA providence...

    My Psoriatic Arthritis Timeline

    Congrats! We have very similar timelines so I'm hoping I get my ratings back as quickly as you did. If you don't mind me asking, how many conditions did you claim?

    MEB

    My MSC was useless and it took over 100 days for me to get my C&P exams scheduled from the day we filed. I emailed and called her but she never answered or responded. I finally harassed my PEBLO and he was able to get things moving, but if you don't advocate for yourself, they won't either. Good...

    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    Update: Apparently there was huge conference in Texas last week for everyone involved in the Med board process including the IPEB folks from AFPC. My PEBLO (who attended) told me everything has been pushed back a week as I have still not heard back from AFPC on whether or not they requested...

    My AF Timeline: Back (SCS Implant), Migraines & Failed Ankle Surgeries

    That’s was a quick response by AFPC - mine was sent down on the 17th so hopefully I’ll hear something back this week.

    My AF Timeline: Back (SCS Implant), Migraines & Failed Ankle Surgeries

    It’s basically a MFR for the board explaining circumstances and clarifying things in the NARSUM. One more document to get your point across whether it’s RTD or separate.

    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    @js820 Yea sounds like the same thing. I just wrote up a page arguing why the board should consider adding my other hip to the referred conditions. My PCM didn't add anything to my NARSUM even though there were about 16 other issues brought up. He just wrote, "see C&P exams". Anyways, I have a...

    My AF Timeline: Back (SCS Implant), Migraines & Failed Ankle Surgeries

    Looks like we have similar timelines - I signed my 618 today but need to write up a letter of exception so it won't be submitted to AFPC until 4/18/19. I'll be interested to see how quickly your ratings come back. Good luck!!

    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    Update - PEBLO has been busting his ass! My IMR is complete along with the local board and it's being referred to the IPEB. PEBLO said it should be sent to AFPC on Thursday and he expects it back in 35 - 45 days. Realistic or not? Also, has anyone written a letter of exception? I noticed there...

    HOW LONG FOR ORDERS AFTER PEB/MEB FINDINGS

    I spoke with my Chief and Major about this. Not sure if you have a good working relationship with your chain of command, but they can make phone calls for you. They usually know people that work down there or up at MPF to get your orders cut ASAP.
