SEP 9th 2017: package was sent off to the PEB.
NOV 19th 2017: VA has claim, but has not rated.

My question is how do I check to see where my package is at currently in the PEB process. I've seen the number on this site to check on it's process but that number doesn't seem to work and only gots to email.

background: Knee, partially torn alc,iinstability. meniscus, 40 degree extension out and in, 4 surgeries. right shoulder, partially torn rotator cuff, 30 degree extension, 4 surgeries.

May be different for you but in my case the claim you see on ebenifits with all your conditions will give you a status with one exception. Look at closed claims as well. I had a closed claim populate on my ebenifits. MY MSC said it was my case and that was when it was sent back to the PEB for approval. It was explained that the original pending claim will close when you file your paperwork with your DD214. My "claim" closed 9 Nov 17 and was sent to the PEB for concurance and now I am waiting on my 199. Outside of that, contacting your MSC who you interviewed with to start the claim is the only way I have found to get information from this part of the process. I do realize that my PEBLO and MSC are far more helpful than most on this forum though.

Do you know how long it is taking the PEB right now to get the 199 back to the PEBLOs?

Here is my current timeline for things completed, no idea when I'll get the 199 and my PEBLO won't give me any guesses. Also I what I meant to say was my MSC and PEBLO are more helpful to me than what I have heard others say about their MSC/ PEBLO. This forum however has been extremely helpful.

Referral 07/25/2017
VA Claims 08/02/2017
Medical Exam Complete 09/08/2017
Medical Evaluation Board 09/14/2017
Informal PEB 10/23/2017
VA Receives PEB Packet 10/23/2017
VA Rating 11/09/2017 (Ratings were started on 09/08/2017)
199 ?

I just got off the phone with Jeff from the actual PEB in Washington D.C. He was very nice and updated me on my case. He said that my case reached the QA Phase today and they review cases on Tuesdays and Thursdays. He said he just sent over 300 cases today so expect to hear something by Friday of next week. He seemed pretty honest so hopefully that's how it goes.
My current timeline is as follows.
Referral: JUL17
Package sent to PEB: 08SEP17
VA Ratings Complete: 30OCT17
Back to PEB: 16NOV17 (VA had to resend over 300 cases bc corruption in the system)
QA Phase: 20NOV17

I'm at Irwin so PEB is at Lewis, But my case went from VA to PEB on the 9th so I'm about a week ahead of you. Hopefully I'll get the 199 this week then, but I'm betting Thanksgiving pushes it to next week.

How do I get in contact with jeff?
I just got off the phone with my PEBLO and she said the package was uploaded to the PEB queue on the 3rd of November and the 16th they reviewed everything to make sure the package was correct. Now I have no idea where it is at. Am I jumping the gun?

I just realized both our packages got sent to back to the PEB on the 16th. I wonder if ours are sitting in the same stack?

ok so I just got off the phone with my PEBLO apparently package was received by the PEB on November 3rd and she said it's been put under "review" on the 16th. Does that mean it's being QA'd?

received by the PEB to begin the process or received by the PEB back from the VA? If back from the VA then yes its being QA'd

That's exactly what that means. You'll have the results soon. Good luck!

The VA has not rated anything yet according to ebennies. It's still pending decision approval

I'm having a hard time following your timeline then. Usually when the VA completes your ratings and sends it back to the PEB, a historical case will show up on ebenefits. Have you checked vets.gov? Vets.gov was a little more transparent when the VA completed my ratings.

It is just odd that your case would have been sent up to the PEB on 09/09/17 but that they wouldn't accept it until 11/03/17. But it is also odd that they would have received your proposed ratings from the VA 11/03/17 but that you wouldn't have a closed claim on vets.gov or ebennies.

My anxiety about this process went away for like a day. Only reason i know my propesed rating is because i went to my local VA to fill out paperwork for my claim. Still havent heard a word from my peblo in 4 months. Never got the official va rating in the mail. Then i just realised there are two more wait games after this is all said and done. You wait for orders. Then you have to wait 2 months or more to get benifits. I keep telling myself this is part of the process and im not the only one. Even the people working our cases have their own lives and situatuons. But this limbo status we have to go through is crazy on the mind. Not only are your possibly getting out the service, but you have to plan a whole new life without really knowing the cards your dealt yet. You still have to deal with the issues that got you ths peb in the first place! My family depends on me and i dont have a answer. Its so frustrating. And if you have a command that is constantly not taking care of you. I couldnt imagine. Dont know the right or wrong way to go through a peb. All i know is that its literally crazy on the mind.
