Nothing on my end. 5 weeks today… lawyer tells me he knows nothing and they don’t even tell him anything. PEBLO just keeps saying “When I hear something I’ll email/call.”
Anything on your end?
I looked on the VA website, they re opened my original claim from feb of 2021. Says it’s at evidence gather and review. Do you have the same on your end? @eringregoire where is your peblo out of again?

Hey, so my case has always said still under review/gather evidence since last December, so I can't base it off of that. Joint Base Charleston in South Carolina.

That’s weird, they never closed any of your claims out? I would ask your peblo if the peb downloaded the file from DOD safe. My peblo sent it up, the peb downloaded and never processed my VARR. They closed my case out and that was that. We had to fight to get it reopened. It was at my six week mark that we discovered this.

So they closed it and it was marked closed as of November 2021, and the one above it stays open, but that was open and updated as of December 9th, 2021 when my most recent VA exam went in. Today is 5 weeks of nothing back. My PEBLO doesn't do shit. She's older and counts down till her retirement in April of next year and that's about it. When I email or call all I get is "I haven't heard anything." How did you even find out it was never processed? I don't even know who to ask when/if I reach 6 weeks of nothing next Monday. My attorney said nothing is told to him so he isn't an option

I found out via my attorney (not naval appointed) It had been weeks and he inquired on it. It was a lot of back and forth with the peb. Ultimately, they received the documents as we had the DOD safe download for proof. They never processed for whatever reason, and closed my case out due to no response on my end. If it weren’t for that proof, they were going to say a big FU to me. My va claim just updated today. They reopened my very first claim. Check your eas and see if it updated? They also updated my eas to reflect the closed case. It has since been updated twice for no reason lol. It’s a horrid process with zero accountability. I would keep contact with your msc. The pen forwards the info to the VA.

I see. Non-navy appointed is a big deal there haha. Maybe I should be looking into one as well.. Any pro-bono ones you know of? I am keeping in touch with my MSC. She told me she emailed DRAS to see if they had anything on my VARR/to see what's up with my case. She also is checking the tracker tomorrow if it is back up to see the status of my whole process (I guess it shows VARR pending next to your name on the tracker) Where did you go to check your EAS? I'll go check it now. Yeah, as of now the MSC said nothing has come through back to the VA and my original rating still stands.

Are you navy or marine corps? IM not sure of pro bono. the name I tagged on your post, could help point you in the right direction. He is an attorney and is fairly active on this site. I can’t believe this could be happening to more people. It just goes to show…..a lot lol. I’m sorry your case is messed up.

Navy unfortunately. Well, unfortunately either way lol. I'll have to shoot him a message. Yeah, I can't find many people besides you and maybe one other that this is happening/happened to. Same to you! I know you were supposed to start school this month. I hope they rush your case, but knowing them, probably very unlikely.

Who else on here is dealing with the same thing? Oh yea, I have zero faith in the system. They extended me twice in a month. Once when they closed my case, and then again when they re opened it lol. It’s a week and a half apart……I can’t begin to understand their logic.

Ugh. So frustrating. I just want to know who the hell dropped the ball. They are seriously playing game with the wrong one. I don't tolerate any sort of this shit. Can't wait to find out what happened. Hopefully my VA MSC can provide some info by Thursday when she goes on leave.

Just got an email from my lawyer. He said my case is “finalized”… Do you think that means they never even processed it? I sent a new ROM exam, so it’s not like the PEB could not send it to the VA to be re-rated right? ROM isn’t really a negotiable factor if I understand that correctly.

Just sent my attorney my proof that I requested a VARR with my ROM exam that was supposed to be sent off by my PEBLO. Hoping we can have my case reopened since they straight up didn't process my VARR. Looks like we're in the exact same boat now.

Hello Everyone, I’m at the formal board stage, and was wondering if anyone with a June appeal had heard anything yet?

Anyone know how long after my retirement date I’ll receive my final check and my travel claim check?
