Long Haul

Just thought I’d put my timeline out there for everyone and to give some hope for anyone filing a PFR. I hadn’t seen too many posts on here about successful PFRs or the turnaround time (at least I couldn’t find many with the search feature) and I know a lot of people aren’t well versed in their options post formal board.

31OCT18: Referred to MEB
06NOV18: VA Exams
19DEC18: Supplemental QTc Exam
03JAN19: Another QTc Exam
07MAR19: Sent to iPEB
27MAR19: Found Fit
13APR19: Request for Formal Board (attorney needed an extension)
11JUN19: Formal PEB in Washington DC
10JUL19: Told my package was at QA in PEB
16JUL19: Found Fit by the Formal Board
31JUL19: Filed a PFR
05AUG19: PFR was GRANTED and was found UNFIT.

This was a long process- still is. I don’t really subscribe to the whole watching ebenefits thing but today it changed to pending decision approval or whatever so I’m just hanging out. I just wanted to give anyone who might have to do a PFR some hope because I couldn’t find much on them myself. Also- yes, they apparently do QA your stuff even if you are fit (happened to me and I got super stoked just to be let down lol) just saying for those who have that question.

I haven't notice a PFR case timeline before. While waiting is never fun, the PFR actually happened pretty fast.

I hadn’t seen one either. And yeah while I heard they were quick, the few I had heard of we’re all denied almost immediately so it was very shocking to find out mine had been successful.

What does a PFR do exactly especially in a case where one is found fit for duty? Just trying to learn!

Just found...never heard of PFR until 15 minutes ago.

For the Navy and Marines, once the FPEB's decision is final, but before the service member is officially discharged, he can submit a Petition for Relief (PFR) to the Director, Naval Council of Personnel Boards (DIRNCPB).
NOTE: This can only be done BEFORE discharge. If the service member is separated without submitting a PFR, he simply skips this step and appeals in Level 2.
A PFR can only be submitted if (1) there is new evidence that was not considered by the PEB, (2) there is proof that fraud, misconduct, or misrepresentation occurred during the PEB Process, or (3) there was a definite mistake of the law during the PEB Process.
If the PFR is not granted, then the service member is officially discharged, and he can appeal to the Level 2 Board.
