Yeah, so had a similiar issue. I couldn't get in touch with anyone that would give me a decent answer about what was going on, so I called the hotline number on the OMBUDSMAN's answering machine and they got it sorted. I'm back to preparing for decision now.
glad you got some answers...I am currently still waiting on my ratings 119 days and counting

Sometimes I think I have it bad, sitting at about 90, and realize there’s people that have it worse! Luckily I was able to negotiate a job offer to start mid August because, well, you know.

I’m hearing about people get word in way less time, sometimes around 45 days. Crazy because just 6 months ago this phase was only last a couple weeks tops!

Lol, it is alright, So far from what I have heard is that they requested more information about my referred injury which is OK with me because my C&P Doctor really kind of boned me on the exam, but it seems as though whoever is at the VA sent a request for verification and further inquiry so I am happy they seem to be doing their job the right way?

Secondly I literally JUST got my memo from the IPEB that was finished on the 29th of January, stating I was unfit, but also giving me my V-Codes, now the question I have is this a blanket noticejust to get VA Ratings because i made an appointment with the Legal team to verify it, and prepare to fight it.

Weird that you just got it, my PEBLO sent the Unfit memo to me right away. It is blanket in the sense is that that memo is what officially requests your ratings, but the V Codes are important. From what I gathered in the vast library of this forum, is that V1 is for injuries sustained in combat, and V3 is injuries combat related (airborne jumps, training accidents, etc). Can’t remember what V4 was

I am aware of the V codes, what I was stating was that they were submitted to the VA as all No and I know that my attorney and I discussed at length and he is the one who even told me I qualified for a few of them, So I was going to get clarity from him and prepare ourselves if it come to it.

Hopefully for you that is an actual change rather than toying with your emotions.
Yea I think that it is this time, I did speak to someone on the phone a while ago stating they sent it back to QTC for verification. We shall see! Either way I think that my initial fight has only begun. 13 years later that’s one thing you cannot forget, they taught you how to fight for what’s supposed to be right, so don’t let them do you wrong either!

Good luck!
thanks much, I unfortunately believe I will be requesting a Formal Board once the ratings come, I probably won't disagree with my ratings, I will however be disagreeing with the V coding on it.

I agree, that’s one of the most important facets of this process.

Well, I called in to check on my process and it looks like the same thing happened to me, they found an issue and wanted more information on it. They made the request in March, right after I was submitted for ratings, but nothing moved since.

On the bright side, it’s better to get it right now rather than later
