    VA Ratings do not make sense...

    So I did a claim starting in January 2018 while I was outprocessing the army. I started the claim 6 months before I ETS’d. I got my full decision 4 days after my ETS leave was over 12jul18. I’m at 80% and my first payment is 1Aug18. What kind of claim would that be?

    VA Ratings do not make sense...

    Sure I don’t mind telling at all, but I’m not sure what you mean? I didn’t know there were different types of claims.

    VA Ratings do not make sense...

    Ok great thank you. This is what I gathered from your help, So pursue the service connected disagreement for toenails and nose, do not purpsue the P&T since it will not most likely get apporved, and do not pursue the mental health one since the 30% rating now makes sense. Thanks for all the info!!

    MEB and 2nd DUI

    Im not familiar with MEBs or the VA as I just finished the VA process myself. I know from being a CPT in the Army (leadership side of the house and having to write MFRs for soldiers) that the MFR will probably just add historical evidence to your MEB to show that your mental health issues are...

    MEB and 2nd DUI

    At my old unit, I had a buddy (got a long with him, but he had really questionable judgement) get 3 DUIs as a CPT. He got put into a MEB as he was being disciplined, and the MEB trumped his disciplinary action. This was last year, and he got permanent retirement at 80%. Your retirement should be...

    VA Ratings do not make sense...

    So my medical conditions will not improve. I will eventually need surgery for joint issues, my neurologist and pulmonary doctors said adult sleep walking never goes away, and I got rated for sleep apnea. My pulmonary doctor said that never goes away, as well, if its not weight related (I'm tall...

    VA Ratings do not make sense...

    Well damn...30% rating description hits the nail on the head for me. That rating describes me almost exactly. That makes sense why its 30% and why everything is put together!! Thanks a lot! That saves me some time. But for the broken nose and the toe issue should I appeal that? I mean it...

    VA Ratings do not make sense...

    I got my rating from the VA on Tuesday. I was rated at 80% not P&T. I am not complaining at all, and I am extremely, extremely grateful. I just wish they did not give me a percentage breakdown because that frustrated me. I was a 12A who deployed 3 separate times, twice to AFG and once to IRQ. I...

    MEB Status?

    I posted a question in another thread about my overall case, and now I am concerned, about my timeline or if I will even have a MEB. Long story short, was in AFG three weeks ago, got caught sleep walking, got sent home. Medical history is Boxed for the Army (drs worried about concussions), blown...

    MEB Help Please!

    ruyhara47, thank you for your response. In your opinion are any of my issues "worthy" of disability compensation? I am trying to plan my next steps as far as getting out and Ive read that sleep walking isn't ratable. Do I have to prove the army caused it? Ive never slept walk before. My COC is...

    MEB Help Please!

    I am a CPT in the Army in my 7th year of service. I am currently deployed but found out I have to go home next Saturday. I was caught sleep walking in the barracks and was instantly referred to mental health where they initiated a medical eval board and chapter from the army back at fort bragg...
