    IPEB Recommended TDRL For 60% Rated Asthma

    Hi, I recently went through an MEB in the Air Force and was found unfit for duty and recommended for TDRL with 60% rating for asthma. I was really hoping it would be PDRL and my PEBLO seemed shocked as well that it wasn’t. I requested a Formal Board in order to change it from TDRL to PDRL. Do I...

    All, I am a stickler for details and I just don't like that this Block indicates that my illness DISABILITY WAS NOT INCURRED IN A COMBAT ZONE. I have a 60% DOD PDRL and 70% VACP rating, so why is this one little block concerning me so much? I have until COB on 9NOV to decide to appeal or...

    I don't understand this process

    I received my IPEB ratings and I want to appeal but I am overwhelmed with the amount of information and decisions so I am confused. 1. I have 10 days to make a decision on the IPEB ratings. Does that mean I only have 10 days to submit medical records & appeal information? I have to make...

    IPEB Memo

    Received the IPEB memo today from my PEBLO. States unfitting: PTSD and major depressive disorder recurrent. From what I've read and heard, it's difficult to go straight to PDR with behavioral healthl issues, but I've been treated for this for approximately 5 years. Does the usage of...

    Agree with unfit finding, disagree with how IPEB changed unfitting conditions.

    BLUF: I am unfit. Dx ME/CFS, which is the unfitting condition that sent me to the MEB. Form 356 rated fibro as unfitting and rolled up ME/CFS into it for a total of 40%. Will an FPEB address this? Background: USAF O5, 17 years, previously deployed to gulf war region, unfitting for ME/CFS (dx...

    I was just wondering if anyone had any idea on the process the VA takes when doing ratings. My case has been at the VA for about 40 days now and about 7 days ago my claim had movement. I contacted the VA and they said they had finished my proposed ratings and sent them to the PEB. But I...

    C&P to IPEB Results - Predictable or Inconsistent?

    Got my C&P back and ready to send out to the IPEB (I already know I'm Unfit). Boxes are checked that translate directly to percentages in the VASRD, but I was wondering if there is any chance the IPEB decides to ignore the C&P and downgrade my ratings based on their own opinions. Is the IPEB...

    Ratings in!

    I got my ratings and signed for them last week on Dec 1st. 40% DoD permanent retirement, and 90%VA. Some conditions were rated higher than I expected and others lower. I was surprised that I received my ratings back so soon after my claim went historical. My timeline should be in my signature.
