My timeline is as follows:
Diagnosed and referred 6 Feb 19
Contact made with PEBLO and IRILO questionnaire returned 25 Feb 19
Commanders Impact statement signed and returned-12 Mar 19
Case submitted to AFPC- 12 Mar 19
AFPC directs full MEB- 21 Mar 19
Met with PEBLO to go over MEB specifics- 22 Mar 19
Met with MSC coordinator to claim conditions- 28 Mar 19
VA exams started in late April and ended in early May.
PEBLO received copy of those CP exams and were sent off to providers for review, case was presented to local board this past Tuesday-11 Jun 19
I’m awaiting for one more doctor signature then it will be fully submitted next tues to the IPEB and I will meet with PEBLO to go over my options.

My question is what are the options that we will go over and does the IPEB determine if I’m fit or not fit?

20 Jun- Signed off on the paperwork & case was forwarded to IPEB
8 Jul- was informed by PEBLO that I was found unfit & my package is at the VA awaiting ratings
I’m not sure if that’s the exact day I was found unfit or when it got sent that way. But I was told it would be 5-7 weeks

I'm currently waiting to hear back from my PEBLO if it'll be an RTD or Full MEB for fibromyalgia as well. I've been sick for over 2 years now and I'm just wanting to get the ball rolling with this whole thing.

We have the same timeline. Do you know what VA Regional Office that’s rating your claims? I believe mine is Muskogee, OK. Hoping we hear something very soon.

I’m not sure where mine is out of. I’m hoping to find something out soon. Hoping you get something soon too. This process is stressful lol

Just an update since our timelines are very close. I spoke with my PEBLO today and said they're expecting to hear something this week so fingers crossed.

Ah!! That’s exciting!! I’ll have to ask mine. I’ve been watching the va.gov site but haven’t seen any update on the claim.

Checked the VA website and my estimated completion date went from oct 2019 to dec 2019. I know that doesn’t mean much since I’m going through the IDES still think that’s interesting

I have a lot of extra claims on top of my 3 MEB'd referrals: Fibromyalgia, PTSD and Hypermobility Syndrome. Hopefully, after my last VA exam tomorrow, the PCM/Specialist reviews won't take long, so we can just get this ball a'movin. Just checked the VA completion date: Dec19-Jan20. Hopefully, that is just guesstimation and not a true date range. I would like for this to just end and be out, so I can start the next chapter of my life...being a stay-at-home mom. :)

My Timeline:

Diagnosed by PCM- 26Feb19
Reviewed by DAWG- 9Apr19
Contact made with PEBLO and IRILO questionnaire returned-18Apr19
Commanders Impact statement signed and returned-9May19
Case submitted to AFPC- 10May19
AFPC directs full MEB- 11Jun19
Met with PEBLO to go over MEB specifics- 11Jun19
Met with MSC coordinator to claim conditions- 12Jun19
VA C&P exams- 24Jun19 until 18July19


and now we wait...

VA.gov site says my claim has been closed/finished and my ratings are ready, gonna be contacting my PEBLO in a few days, from my understanding DoD will have to assign a rating

Contacted PEBLO yesterday, she said the VA was done and now waiting on the DoD side
I’m getting jelly! Lol.....Mine still shows open but what did change is my completion date went from Mar 2020 to Jan 2020. Maybe that’s good news? I’m just ready to retire!

After, thinking about it, I'm assuming the Estimated Completion Date(ECD) would be for someone not in the MEB process, but is a normal retiree or veteran that is claiming after they're out of the military. MEBs should not take a full year just for the VA side. That would be insane! My ECD just changed to Jul 2020. WTF!?

That would make more sense.
