    NBSD Timeline

    It is calculated like High 3 retirement. They take the last 3 years of your service and average your base pay for that period of time. Then the average is multiplied by 50% (in my case). Then your retirement pay is offset by the amount you receive from the VA. If you are over 20 years of...

    NBSD Timeline

    DOD was 50% and VA was 80% (proposed). Think it will push to 100% based on additional evidence that was submitted. I will not know final VA rating until early November. I am on terminal leave until OCT 28th.

    NMCP (Navy-Norfolk) Timeline

    Finally at the end of this process. Thanks to all who shared their experiences and timelines. This forum was a great source of information that I would not have had access to otherwise. I received my retirement orders yesterday and am set to go on terminal level starting August 31. My last...

    So after you accept findings it goes back to the PEB. The PEB then sends a list to BUPERS (heard it referred to as an Index by PERS 954). Based on receipt of Index BUPERS (PERS 954) sends out a Naval message that goes to PSD and your command to notify them that you have been found unfit. That...

    Nickolas, my updated timeline below. I did get my findings. I received them 26 JUL and officially accepted them on 29 JUL - 50% DOD, 80% VA and TDRL. Once your claim shows closed it goes back to the PEB to be finalized/QAed. Mine took 12 days once back at PEB until PEBLO called me and said...

    MEB/PEB Timeline (NBK - Bangor, WA)

    Guardguy, based on your user name and some of the terminology used in your timeline I assume you might be Army?? If so calling Providence, RI will be of no help. All Navy and Marine IDES goes to Providence. Not sure which VA Office handles the other branches. Just wanted to pass along to...

    Struggling to find DTAP

    Personally I think you are better off going to TGPS. DTAP has good information but most of it is dedicated to the MEB/PEB process (D in DTAP is Disability). DTAP is a one day event. The VA, PEBLO, Attorney and some other folks come in. 3 to 4 hours of the day are dedicated to explaining the...

    NMCP (Navy-Norfolk) Timeline

    I found the written guidance in the M21-1 (VA raters bible on how to rate) on the VA website and confirmed with my PEBLO. I will be accepting the findings on Monday after I meet the lawyer. Just going to do a sanity check with him. Ready to move on down the road.

    I think I heard this at some point (DTAP or in conversation with the lawyer). It makes sense. I just could not remember. Thanks for the reply. I hope that is the case. That will fit my timeline better than waiting around for further rating decisions.

    Is there some additional information you have regarding a VARR?

    Mustang it is not. I am happy with the unfitting condition's rating. Not happy with a couple of the other items.

    NMCP (Navy-Norfolk) Timeline

    Does anyone know how long it takes to do a VA Rating Re-consideration (VARR)? Received my findings. 50% DOD (I am 62.5% for longevity - so if I do accept these findings I will retire with my High-3) and 80% VA and placed on TDRL. A couple of items surprised me. Nr. 1 was placement on the...

    NMCP (Navy-Norfolk) Timeline

    Findings are back! Just got off the phone with my PEBLO. Of course she would not tell me any information over the phone and I have to wait until Friday @ 1000 to see her. I am just happy that the findings are back and I am one BIG step closer to retirement. My updated timeline below...

    No ratings. VA will not fax them to me until Friday morning. I visited with my PEBLO yesterday and she had nothing. The waiting game continues.

    NMCP (Navy-Norfolk) Timeline

    I am a bit fuzzy on when orders are in hand (how long). I do know it is after the Notification of Decision and know that only the orders will provide the lines of accounting to support the move. I know of nothing you can acquire to set up the move earlier. Personal property will not accept...

    The VA will fax the proposed ratings to you after 10 business days have elapsed as Bosan describes above. They will not give on the 10 days...that is my own personal experience. Most frustrating thing about this is that the woman I talked to at VA could see the letter but could not talk to me...

    What happens now ?

    Wowowow, I have heard it takes PERS 2-4 weeks to generate separation/retirement orders. Some things you might need to be thinking about....did you complete TGPS (nobody leaves without completing)? There should be a message that has your ratings and pertinent dates....does your command have...

    Nikolas, I was referred to MEB on 28FEB19. My package was sent to PEB on 10 MAY. I know that my package is now back at the PEB for final QA before it comes back to PEBLO (been there a little over a week). As far as the fit/unfit decision - you are unfit. Only unfit PEB packages go to the VA...
