I know this is supposed to be for Army, but I did not find one for Air Force.

I submitted a LOD back in October/November 2017 after fighting with the LOD- MPF and not sending me the correct information. I have seen 5 doctors and been diagnosed with Tendinitis in both of my ankles and Neuralgia in my right ankle. After covering all the medical costs for the last year I have been told that my LOD has still not been forwarded to my commander and that Medical will review it when they get a chance. I have been told repeatedly by my supervisor that it could take up to a year for them to complete the process, but according to the AFI its "supposed" to be completed within 85 days. I am frustrated as I was out of work through my civilian job for 5 1/2 months and am struggling with the medical debt and the financial debt.

If anyone has any advice as to what I can do to speed up the process or if they have had any experience with their unit prolonging your LOD I would appreciate it.

I also shortened my story a lot, if you need clarification or more information I'll gladly.

Thank you

Greetings. I am also in the USAFR. My initial "informal" LOD (for breast cancer diagnosed while deployed" took upwards of a year to get completed. I have appealed the initial finding and am going on month 4 without hearing anything. My recommendation is to ask your commander to check in the computer system for where your LOD is in the process.
I will PM you for clarification on your situation.

I contacted my supervisor this past week and the response I received was "the LOD is still at medical and will be looked at when they have the time" meaning that they haven't even taken the time to evaluate me. The AFI states by the next UTA, but they didn't when I shoved the AFI in their face and told me that I just have to wait.

I would definitely file an IG Report (and make sure you keep a copy of the report/file number). “When they have time” is simply not acceptable.

That is what I was looking into doing. I thought it was unacceptable and its been the about the same answers I have been getting since I started this. It took me 3 months to find out that they needed paperwork from me because they emailed my AF email and not my civilian when I was put on p-4 and had no way to access it.

I tried to contact the units IG and was told they are reservist, so I called AFRC and their phone just continued to disconnect....Now I have contacted the IG for the Secretary of the Air Force

I finally got contacted back by the IG. They are currently reviewing everything and after I told her the story of my whole injury she is contacting my units commander, Chief, supervisor and the LoD- MPF. It has been approximately 111 days since I turned the paperwork over to the LOD- MPF and it still has yet to reach my commander.
