Early 2020 Bragg Timeline

For those currently at Bragg, about how long after your exams did you hear back from NARSUM or MCS? Just looking for a time estimate on the next phase.

At my 1st appt (14 Jan) my PEBLO told me NARSUM would be done by end of Feb and likely have 199 in April. I got an email from VA saying my claim was move to evidence gathering with an estimated completion of March 2021. I assume that's based on normal claims not MED/PEB claims. My PEBLO and MSC have been radio silent since initial appt.

I know lots of patience is involved so I don't want to pester them. Looking for how long is "normal" or "average" so that if it goes long i know to start asking, and can just be patient in the meantime.

How did you get your memo? My Peblo told me Monday I was Unfit and everything sent to the VA for ratings, but when I asked for a Memo said they aren't allowed to give them out.

Worndering if this is site specific, or if you had somewhere else you got it?

I didn’t physically get memo, i was just told i was found unfit and that my file was sent for ratings. That it would take 2 - 4 months

Ahh ok so same thing I was told (about memo). I was told that VA rating % was taking 2-6 weeks though, not 4-6 months. Or were they telling you the rest of the entire process was 4-6?

VA kept telling me they were backed up.

But PEBLO kept saying they weren't behind and that they hadn't had a single case that got backed up (i.e. all the cases were 2-4 weeks). My case defienetly fit with what PEBLO said and not what my VA MSC said (who had said 2-4 months).

That is great news, hope your process starts again now that those are in. If you don't mind, how many conditions did you list? My Va Ratings were requested 24MAR and I had 25 conditions. No change to my ebenefits yet. Hoping to have them by next week.

I submitted 43, some were combined leaving me with 39 at time of my C&P.

One was not processed because it hasn't been an issue since 2010, cant recall what they called it, but it wasn't denied, just wasn't active. Leaving me with 38.

My Examiner added 4 more (bi lat feet, bi lat planter facititis, left ankle, which added bi lat ankles but different conditions) for a total of 42. But my MSC said I had to wait till after I was a Vet to claim those "invited" claims form my exams, but PEBLO told me lots of times (not all) the rater may just add them. So no idea how that worked out.

My PEBLO said she can see I'm 100%, but can't tell what the break down was or if I am P&T and i'll have to wait for the VA letter or the 199 which ever arrives first.

I've heard of others getting their claims breakdown before 199, but no idea how they do it.
