If found fit and choose to separate do the VA C&P exams conducted during the MEB stand or do you have to refile your claims upon separation?

You shouldn't have to place a new claim, wait for the decision. If denied, then look for your local VSO (Veterans Service Officer) and bring in your denial letter to analyze it. With it, you can find out why it was denied and what is needed to submit a new claim or to ask for a Reconsideration.

Do they do a C&P exam for a "fit" determination? My MEB/IPEB was a decade ago and there was no exam or disability determination as I was found "fit" and returned to duty (with limitations).

The C&P exams are now done in conjunction with the MEB process DOD uses the VA ratings if they find you unfit, my question is if the board finds me fit, I am due to separate 10 Days upon notification (on a Medhold for duration of MEB) of the fit finding, are my C&P exams good to go or do I have to do the whole thing over?

If found fit and returned to duty, the VA closes the claim without issuing ratings or denials. You would then have to file a new claim. Reconsiderations and appeals cannot be filed because the VA never rendered a decision.

Once you are out you could file a Decision Ready Claim through a VSO citing the exams previously completed. The completion goals for DRCs is 30 days. The only catch with this would be that you would need to stick to the issues the C&P exams were completed for. If you add any issues that don't have a corresponding exam then your claim would be disqualified from the DRC program and processed as a standard claim.

If you are returned to duty with less than six months but more than three months left on active duty you could file a pre-discharge claim through the Benefits Delivery at Discharge program.

Thank you, exactly what I was looking for.
