    Goy my IPEB results today.. No shock that I was found unfit. Now the real wait begins for VA ratings.

    Fit unfit?

    Statistically (even stated on the AF IDES website) less than 5% of all MEBs are resulted as "Return to Duty". My PEBLO explained this is because the AF is the only one that does the IRILO (don't know if that is 100% true or not), which is the AF's way of weeding out those that can be returned...

    Has anyone else been in this type of situation?

    I was previously stationed in the UK at a base with no PEBLO. I also worked in the clinic and 100% of the Navy folks who were separating went back to the states to finish out-processing. I only knew because that was one of the few times we were still allowed to let people hand carry their...

    Timeline Question:

    I am not sure about other services but my AF PEBLO informed me that they are not allowed to tell members the results of the IPEB immediately when the get them. They have to brief the commander first. Not that I agree with this rule but... that is most likely the hold up in getting told your...

    I will definitely update. Fingers crossed I have no reason to appeal the outcome.

    pay confusion

    I haven't received ratings yet so I will make assumptions. The ratings are my best guess based of my DBQs and the VASRD. Disability retirement only - no other retirement eligibility Estimating 40% DoD/90% VA 16 yrs 6 months Active Duty

    How long for ratings?

    It's so bizarre on how some people wait months to get ratings and others are getting them back in a few days (who were often submitted well after those waiting for months)! My package was just sent to the IPEB yesterday and the PEBLO says the answer will most likely come back next week. After...

    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    That's awesome! Glad you are finally getting some movement! Fingers crossed it stays moving quickly for you. My package was accepted by the IPEB today and my PEBLO says they should come back with an answer (fit or unfit) next week. The end is getting near(ish).

    I feel like I am never going to understand the DFAS world! :P I also accepted the REDUX; but I am not eligible for CRDP... do you know how that will affect my pay??

    pay confusion

    According to the DFAS website: Disability Retirees and Reserve/Guard members retiring at age 60 (or younger in some cases) are exempt from all provisions of the CSB/REDUX provisions except the 1 percent COLA reduction.

    EPTS Pes Planus(Flat Foot) for ratings

    To make it more muddy the VASRD also states: Flat foot can only be rated if it occurred over time (and is often the result of exercise or other service-connected activities) and causes pain, deformities or any limitation in function. So its hard to say without experiencing city myself or knowing...

    EPTS Pes Planus(Flat Foot) for ratings

    I would think so... If their was no pain or other symptoms before. Just depends on what the VASRD would rate 0 vs. 10%

    EPTS Pes Planus(Flat Foot) for ratings

    It looks like there is no set deduction.. it depends on how much aggravation occurred in service. I got this from www.militarydisabilitymadeeasy.com : Service-aggravated conditions are not necessarily given the full rating and compensation that would usually be given to the same condition if it...

    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    Oh definitely quicker! When I first started my estimated date on VA.gov was 30 November 2019. Now it says 31 July but even that is probably very inaccurate.

    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    Every case is different so maybe yours will move faster than mine once it is really going :) Think positive. Also, please don't take what va.gov says to seriously... since we are in IDES it really isn't that useful to us all the time.

    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    Oh no... QTC took their sweet time returning the C&P exam notes. The MEB itself is actually done at your local MTF by 3 docs, and it's about the halfway point in the whole process. Since that result was "Refer to IPEB"; the whole package will be sent to AFPC for them to determine fit/unfit for...

    IDES - AF Timeline & VA C&P Exams

    Do you all use QTC as the contractor? I have heard that they are having issues with backlog with QTC but haven't really heard specifics. Yes, it is very strange that it's been this long for you to get appointments. The scheduling of the appointments usually one of the fastest steps of this...
