    TBI MEB process

    When the medical reevaluation invitation letters get send out what address does the Army/VA use? I've updated everything in DEERS, is there someone else that needs to be contacted for address update for the Army side?

    TBI Exam

    Yeah, it's pretty normal IMO. Because of the TBI it's possible to have a psychiatric condition, that's why it was probably requested by the VA

    TBI MEB process

    When does the VA start distributing money? My VA case was finalized back in Aug, around 15ish or 16ish, and then I got a letter from them saying that the effective date is Sep 1, 2016, does that mean the VA will start paying on Oct 1? I remember the VA rep talking about it at one of the...

    TBI MEB process

    @MrPhotographer06, Thanks man! I hope your stuff goes through quickly! Working with the ombudsman definitely helped out when I was waiting on ratings. If you get your ratings early though, but not enough time to go to school, I'd fight for a higher percentage, especially if your ratings come...

    TBI MEB process

    @MrPhotographer06, I am actually trying to get my orders right now and start the clearing process. It moved pretty fast for me in the beginning and then during the VA/PEB phases it really sloooowed down. I think it's possible for your process to be done in 4 months to get your DA199. When I...

    Don't be in a rush to sign the NARSUM, take it to legal, just in case. I'm hoping your ratings will come in quickly. There is a SM in my unit who went into IDES a month after me and got ratings 2 weeks before me. But with the VA and the PEB you never know... I've seen some people here get their...

    TBI MEB process

    Finally received DA199 today. Proposed ratings of DOD/VA of 75/80 with TDRL. I have two conditions rated at 50% each and one of them is said to be permanent (headaches) and the other is not (adjustment disorder), not sure why TDRL and not PDRL. Also the VA rated an additional condition at 10%...

    No VA will not rate until they receive your memo of unfit status. Once they get it the ratings will then be worked on, after that the VA ratings are sent to the PEB. PEB will then assign ratings on the army side for the referred conditions. Once the PEB will finish, you will get your DA199.

    I got the unfit status as of March 29, 2016 and end of april VA ratings started showing as completed, so now have been waiting for almost a month for the PEB findings... it's crazy that it's taking them this long. Have you tried talking to an ombudsman yet?

    what does your IDES tracker says? I am almost in the same boat and the VA portion of my ratings was done almost a month ago, but still no word from the PEB about their "findings"...

    TBI MEB process

    It's been almost a month since the VA ratings completed... nothing from the PEB findings yet.... wow this is so depressing guys. Today found out that another SM in my unit got ratings back and the SM's MEB started a month after mine. Not even sure what to think. Any ideas on how to speed up the...

    Ebenefits question

    you can also call your MSC and ask him/her if there is anything else you need to submit and then lead that conversation if they can see if your proposed ratings were completed.

    Found unfit now what

    Depends on how quickly you will get your ratings back, I'd say that's the longest step of the whole process. After that if you accept the proposed ratings it should be pretty quick. 10 days for Sec of the Army to approve everything, in the mean time you will be working with TRANS on getting your...

    Ebenefits question

    After I clicked on that button, got VA ratings in about 2 weeks later.

    TBI MEB process

    Finally got contacted by PEBLO that my ratings are in but in order to get my 199 PEB needs to send in Army's ratings. He said it might take additional 2-3 weeks. Almost there, I guess.

    Update on my eBenefits

    In the ebenefits section there are a couple of things you can check: 1. If you have another case closed under "Historical claims" - that means your ratings were completed and that's why you have another case that says "gather of evidence" - this one will close once you leave the AD and upload...

    TBI MEB process

    Tried to contact my PEBLO yesterday and he never returned two of my phone calls. Not sure if he is just avoiding or really busy. Should I try to contact him again? or give it a couple of days?

    Wow that was really quick! Congratulations! Mine closed out on the same date, but I am yet to hear something. I will try calling PEBLO today.

    I haven't heard back yet, only noticed that the case changed on Friday evening. I will post here as soon as I hear something from PEBLO. What day did yours change?
