    Receiving Retirement Pay Instead of Disability Pay

    Yeah, I called the VA Rep at my last base and emailed him the document. Hopefully I'll get the pay soon. Thanks.

    Receiving Retirement Pay Instead of Disability Pay

    So they're waiting on me to send them a document that no one ever told me I needed to send? Even if on the VA, Ebenefits, DEERs, and all the other sites it's says I've been honorably discharged??? This is all so baffling.

    Receiving Retirement Pay Instead of Disability Pay

    I was medically retired on 31 October after 8 years and 7 months in the Air Force. 40% DoD 80% VA. I felt I was briefed a hundred times on the IDES process and how my VA claim would be ready when I separate. However it's December and I've received a retirement check and nothing from the VA. When...

    How long for ratings?

    Hmm, mine got mailed out the 15th and PEBLO had them by the 18th. So they should be contacting you really soon. I would just show up at their office.

    How long for ratings?

    I've heard of people calling the VA to get a rating. But I would definitely contact your PEBLO and try to get a more solid response. I signed my 618 May 23rd and got my ratings 20 June.

    Have you received the MyPers notification that your package is back with your PEBLO? I feel like them saying "unfit" and seeing it on a form are vastly different. If they have the paperwork they have a specific timeframe they have to inform you in. And yes, the 356 will show your ratings.

    I was in a similar situation. I suggest doing as much preparation as you can. I applied and got accepted to schools for fall 2018, even though my MEB wasn't done. But the last thing you want is to be blind sided. Have you seen the form 356 or checked ebenefits?

    Hoping for a Positive Outcome : MDD, Brain Surgery, LOH, & Seizure

    Another question. Do I need to apply for PTDY now or after I receive my orders?

    Hoping for a Positive Outcome : MDD, Brain Surgery, LOH, & Seizure

    18 June 2018 - Vets.gov states disability claim case "closed" 19 June 2018 - MyPers notification "IDES case at PEBLO" 20 June 2018 - Meeting with PEBLO to review AF form 356 DoD 40% Permanent Medical Retirement VA 80% I'm pretty satisfied with the results. What is the overall benefit of...

    Hoping for a Positive Outcome : MDD, Brain Surgery, LOH, & Seizure

    17 June 2018 - Ebenefits updated to "Pending Decision Approval" Is this an actual indication of progression in the whole MEB process? Or is this just like a small check box for the VA?

    Hoping for a Positive Outcome : MDD, Brain Surgery, LOH, & Seizure

    29 MAY 2018 - myPers notification, package at AFPC Physical Disability Operations Branch Should be 6-8 weeks from now, if all the information is sufficient. Hoping I'm close to the end.

    Hoping for a Positive Outcome : MDD, Brain Surgery, LOH, & Seizure

    23 May 2018 – Reviewed Package and Provider's addendum, Signed 618 PEBLO mentioned creating a Letter of Exception. Is it wise to complete one? Or will it have a minimal impact on my case? Ideally I just want this process to be over, but I don't want to accidentally make the outcome unfavorable.

    Hoping for a Positive Outcome : MDD, Brain Surgery, LOH, & Seizure

    I've noticed most people seem to sign there 618 in 2 weeks or less from when the PEBLO receives C&P results. Is this the norm?
