Combat related

Has anyone disputed the IPEB results to have a condition identified as combat related and been successful? One of the criteria is “while engaged in hazardous service, such as aerial flight duty…….” I have been a flyer for my entire career (9700 flying hours) and have deployed many times and think my neck issues/headaches should have been marked as combat related. Would I be wasting my time?

Good morning Yukon, if you medically retired and apply for CRSC, if tinnitus is a VA rating you have, you will qualify as I’m an avionics guy. I applied for rhinitis due to burn pits in Iraq and just for awarded that, of course you have to have a VA percent first. I’m now applying for CRSC for migraines and asthma. I’m guessing your medically retired ?

I just got my ipeb results and I received a permant retirement 80/100%. I plan on applying for CRSC once I’m actually out. While I’m very happy with the results I believe the IPEB should have identified 3 of my conditions as combat related. This designation which I think is warranted according to the DODI would make the entirety of my retirement tax free, which would be nice. I was just curious if anyone has tried to make this argument and whether or not the had any success?

You need to link the problems to an event while performing a hazardous duty ... for CRSC. Exception is presumptive conditions.
