    Important information about PLD

    So I got my results of 80% from the VA. I had close to 18 years, but the Navy rating was only 30%. I figured with the possible changes of CRDP in the future it would be in my best interest to get this bumped up before I accepted my findings as required to request PLD. So I requested they...

    Should residuals be counted with the disqualifying condition

    I recently got my results from the IPEB. My confusion lies in the 30% rating given by the Navy. I have MS and the minimum rating is 30%, but the confusion comes from residuals that are attributed to MS not counted by the Navy, because the VA classified them as non disqualifying. If the...

    Just asking anyone who has gotten a rating back to post what the rating was, and if you were found fit or unfit. The local Jag is telling me there is a possibility I may be found fit even though I have MS, just because my command says I do a good job sitting at a desk in the air conditioning...
