    VA “Proposed ratings” Is that a thing?

    Proposed is just that... proposed. Technically, legally, the VA cannot rate you until you are out... until you become a Veteran.... then they don’t necessarily “rerate” you... they just kind of give your proposed ratings a look and make sure they didn’t miss anything obvious and then make it an...

    20+ Yr AD AF findings

    I recommend not selling leave. Also retire the day before the last day of the month, this will make sure you get your VA compensation one month sooner.

    Meb for one condition however multiple other serious conditions

    Initially, I was referred to the MEB for neurological conditions. At the time I also had a lot of psych issues. So I had to get my psych issues referred to the MEB. This was difficult. I had to be honest about munmental Health to my commander and have him do the commanders rate me to include why...

    Meb for one condition however multiple other serious conditions

    The major issue I see is that in the past, and currently, the Condtions that are found unfitting, are only the conditions that were referred to the MEB initially. You could have ten disqualifying conditions... but the only ones that are counted are the ones referred to the MEB. So the rest are...

    Sites to recommend and not recommend

    I used to always refer the many questions I get to the Site. It used to be very simple and informative and easy to research, but now they want you to sign up and pay for a membership. So now I’ll refer people to the VASRD VA site instead...

    Need to be found fit at FPEB

    You need to talk to a lawmaker ASAP. RTD is difficult to attain, even at 18.5 years.

    Status of Security Clearance while undergoing MEB?

    What Charlie said is true, Shizophrenia would likely cause the Govt to remove access. For other mental health conditions it’s not so clear. I was granted a secret clearance although I had a diagnosis of MDD and anxiety order NOS at the time. The key is being honest about it, there was a question...

    Status of Security Clearance while undergoing MEB?

    To my knowledge the MEB/PEB has nothing to do with clearances. I was active duty and at the PEB stage and my clearance had expired (10 year secret). I got an email that I had to renew it. I told them it was a waste of taxpayer money as I would be out before it was finalized. I was told unless I...

    COAD.. HELP..what are the chances of approval

    Nothing is guaranteed, hell not even 18 year sanctuary can protect you from being medically separated at 19.5 years!!! What information is this person citing? Do they have real info or just a barracks lawyer spouting off their baseless opinion?

    Looking for advice on medical retirement

    Just so you know, sanctuary does NOT apply to MEB/PEB cases. You’ll want to avoid the surgery and recovery until you have 19 years in, because you can stretch out the PEB with appeals and make it to 20.

    Options to get good 20 years

    I think what you’re asking is if someone Guard/Reserve can get a combination of traditional and full time years. The short answer is yes. my wife for example has 7 years AGR and 5 traditional for a total of 12 combined. As I understand it, she can keep on the AGR path and retire full time in...

    Options to get good 20 years

    19.5 years doesn’t count as 20. You’ll want to ask these questions from guard and reserve veterans. she will best benefit from getting her 20 year letter and then collecting CRDP at age 60. She can get a CH 61 retirement now, if she has the appropriate LODs.
