Or does it have to be combat related? Do I need to prove the disease was somehow caused by me being in the military? Or just being...

    Honorable discharge change to medically retired

    I have question in regard to changing my honorable discharge to medically retired. I’m not even sure if this is possible, but as the main reason I left the army was for medical reasons I believe that it’s worth a shot. I currently receive 70% rating from the VA from service connected injuries...

    VA ratings says complete on IDES dashboard?

    I have seen and heard that you can contact the VA and see what ratings you got? My Peblo keeps telling me there is no update "for the last 2 months" but it says the VA ratings was complete 7 days ago. Can I see what ratings I got?

    "Pending Decision Approval" back to "Hathering Evidence"?

    I started the MEB process on March 31st and my claims went to VA almost 2 months ago. I've been checking EBenefits for updates and it just recently went from "Pending Decision Approval" back to "Gathering Evidence". Is there something wrong or does that mean it has gone back to the PEB?
