    Ratings In!!

    I just got the call yesterday, 70DOD/100VA TDRL. I am surprised this is done already. I have 10 days to accept. I meet with Legal on the 4th, sign and accept and choose a retirement date I think. I thought I had another 2 months at least to be at this point.

    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.

At the time my PEBLO told me that the average turnaround time for Air Force to get ratings back was 45 days. I called her today and she told me the VA and the IPEB are wayyyyy...

    I have been out 10 years, but found out PEBLO can be reviewed...

    I filed for a PEB review. It is my understanding that the military decided that the PEB review process going on around 10-15 years ago wasn't being decided very fairly. They have been reevaluating older cases. I was originally given 10%, but VA gave me over 90%. I was told that I had a good...

    Has anyone been rated for something that they did not claim?

    Question: Say a Soldier claims Anxiety as a result of a traumatic event. The MEB is in the process and still waiting for the NARSUM. If BH and the QTC claims that the Soldier has Depression, PTSD, or whatever, will they add it or replace the claimed mental disorder?
