Tomorrow will be a month since the PEB received my ratings from the VA... Total time in the process: almost 5 months. 67 days since being found unfit... Don't know what's going to happen.

I called the VA yesterday and was faxed my Rating Narrative Summary, which breaks down all of my conditions and the reasoning behind what they gave me...

The document states that, "Findings of the Physical Evaluation Board (PEB) Proceedings, dtaed March 15, 2012, document a diagnosis of right shoulder pain, recommending permanent disability retirement from active duty." My question is if the VA only gave me 10% for my shoulder, but gave me 20% for the nerve causing the problems and 30% for severe headaches from the damaged nerve, could they use those unreferred conditions for a retirement? The damaged nerve was found during the C&P exam and not a claimed condition, but the headaches were a claimed condition but is a reason for all the pain.

If you meant, if DOD could use those unreferred conditions for retirement? Most likely no, as they only rate conditions that were referred by the MEB. Thats the problem I am dealing with and trying to fix.

x2. That is why it is so important to ensure that every "boardable" condition is added to your MEB before it goes up. I had 6 listed and the VA rep kicked back 2 saying that they weren't "boardable" conditions. And I think DevilDoc can attest to the a**pain associated with trying to fix the issue post-MEB.

Yes I can, as I am going to DC mid June for my Fomal board to try and add 4 additional conditions.

Yeah, that's what I figured and I'm fine with that. I just would like to get these things and go. I have to be back in Houston to take a physical and drug test for my new job by 22 June and start work by 02 Jul.

With the VA compensation at 80% with a spouse and three kids it's $1814 a month, but when you take out my severance (about $84,000) of %10 or $127 a month, my monthly payment will be $1687. I am totally fine with that coupled with my new position salary at $67,000 annually. Retirement would be nice, but I can accept having to pay for monthly insurance.

Also, what's important to me is that I get somesort of care after the militay and with a 80% rating, I can get care at the VA or my private insurance. So, I'm happy with that.

I agree, and continued care/treatment/meds are huge if you have conditions that are persistent or worsening. Money/bills, etc. can be worked/negotiated, but your health cannot.

You will... I think what's taking so long is the mailing time... It says on the paperwork that they received it 19 MAY 2012, but it was snet by the VA on 24 April. God, I feel like a huge bruden was just lifted off my shoulders and in a way, I just won the lottery... Is that bad?

That is horrible, you should be ashamed of yourself. Just kidding, maybe you should play the lottery now and see if that comes in as well :) Sure is good to see the rare posting of somebody actually getting through this process in one piece!
