    Special Review of VA File?

    I only received a letter from the VA stating that my military service department requested a disability assessment from the VA because I was found unfit for continued military service. Although I lost those 3 appeals, I was approved for Limited Assignment Status at the 19year mark. Since you...

    Special Review of VA File?

    Not sure if this is related or not, but when I was going though IDES, I lost my informal appeal, formal appeal, and SAFPC appeal, however at SAFPC level, they requested a VA reconsideration without me even asking since they found some conflicting information. The SAF requested VAR was a higher...

    VA rating null and void

    Since my proposed ratings were dated Oct 2019, does anybody know if they are just going to update the ratings, or put me all the way back through the ringer with ratings having recently been done?

    VA rating null and void

    Throughout the MEB process, the VA proposed a 70% rating and then I was approved for Limited Assignment Status and allowed to retire this summer with just over 20 yrs. The letter from the VA says "In the event that the member is not separated from service as a result of the IDES process, this...

    PDRL/TDRL

    Disregard. I was thinking somehow if I were put on TDRL that it could potentially interfere with my CRDP but I think I had that confused with LAS since the LAS approval rates were higher for PDRL than TDRL.

Since my LAS was approved, the military services...

    Limited Assignment Status

    With the notification of LAS approval I received a letter from AFPC stating that I'm entitled to a disability retirement and that a retirement order with an effective date will be generated, and a few days after that, MPS cut my retirement orders. My ratings were DoD 50% and VA 70%. The MSC on...

    Office of Airmen's Counsel

    My MEB started in the Summer of 2017 and I appealed for a RTD at the IPEB, PFEB, and SAFPC. My disposition dates were...IPEB 12 Jan 18, PEB 8 Mar 18, and then SAFPC 15 Nov 18. After my RTD was denied at SAFPC. You can't apply for LAS until you've exhausted the appeals process. In my case it...

    Office of Airmen's Counsel

    I used them and they way I look at them is, they saved my career. They told me not to expect to win my return to duty appeal at any level, but that I would have an excellent chance of being approved for Limited Assignment Status, and last week I was approved. I'll now retire this November with...

    IDES after 18 years of active duty

    I feel your pain and hope that some how you don't loose out on your much deserved retirement. I'm at 19.5 yrs and recommended disposition from the IPEB, FEB, and SAFPC is medical retirement for a spinal fusion because I can no longer perform helicopter flight engineer duties. Maybe "Sanctuary"...

    Spine ROS rating question

    Like Warrior644 said, I was "eyeballed" during my ROM test and was given a 20% rating when I cant even touch my knees. SAF even called out the VA and did their own SAF requested VAR pretty much saying, they were not buying that. I was measured at a rehab clinic and the VA came back with 40%...
