    Current VARR Decision Timeline

    So I just got off the phone with the VA- the gentleman I spoke with was kind and helpful. He looked at my record and saw that the IDES proposed rating was sent to the PEB on July 22nd for review/approval. Not sure how long the approval process typically lasts. I just tried calling my PEBLO but...

    Current VARR Decision Timeline

    That's great news! Hoping you get the birthday present you want. Now I'm just wondering why my PEBLO doesn't have access to this system or at least didn't mention it when I called for an update last week. That two-week turnaround time is in line with what I was told by my attorney so I don't...

    Current VARR Decision Timeline

    Hopefully it's not that long for you. It's been just over a month since my package was submitted so I'm really hoping I hear something by the end of this month. I only have two rated conditions (two for VA and only one of them for AF) so I don't understand why it's taking this long to review my...

    I agree completely. The last thing they want is to give out more money/benefits so they make this process as complicated as possible in the hopes that people will eventually just settle for less.

    Current VARR Decision Timeline

    That's been my exact thought for a while now- that I should've just taken the severance and gotten out two months ago. I know it's worth it for us to fight for the benefits but damn, this is a headache. If there is a number, I don't know it but I might start looking into that.

    Current VARR Decision Timeline

    Hey everyone- so I got my initial VA rating decision on 2 MAY (10% w/ severence pay for two rated conditions). Immediately reviewed the rating criteria and determined that was crap so started the appeals process. I decided to not attend the FPEB and instead put together a VARR package with...

    That's exactly what I'm planning on doing. I see my psych tomorrow and am bringing my whole package including the rating chart.

    VARR Questions - Requesting Rating Increase

    Thank you for sharing. Yours is much more thorough than mine so far, that's for sure. The fact that you were able to cite specific examples is great. I could ask for a printout of my mental health records (I'm sure it'll be at least 75 pages long) and take a similar route. From working with the...

    VARR Questions - Requesting Rating Increase

    Edited message with info I forgot to include: Air Force here (if that matters)- just received my ratings the other day for BIPOLAR II/Other, embarassing, issue. 10% DOD/20% VA (10% for the bipolar and 10% for the other issue that I'm surprised received a rating in the first place). It was noted...

    VARR Questions - Requesting Rating Increase

    Air Force here (if that matters)- just received my ratings the other day for BIPOLAR II/Major Depression. 10% DOD/20% VA. It was noted that I have definite social/life impairment and only moderate occupational impairment under severe stress. That's not necessarily the case. Hoping to get my...
