Seems to be moving along...which conditions were determined unfitting?


My PEBLO does not have that info yet since it's only been 3 days after the VA received. I will post more once I got the result.

UPDATE:

Propose rating from VA. I have not received the final message yet.
40% - DOD
100% - VA

How often does the VA propose rating for my unfitting condition changes when it reach the DOD side? If I get 100% VA do I still need to be reevaluated by them, If so, how often?

I will post more once I got the final message.

Congratulations on the recent receipt of your DoD & DoVA proposed ratings! :)

Based upon whether your DoD rating is attached with PDRL or TDRL, I believe this is one method of a potential change in rating if TDRL is determined on the DoD side. If I have mis-spoken, I am sure other PEB Forum members shall provide updated and/or additional feedback.

Moreover, upon receipt of your DoVA final ratings, they are not "protected ratings" which means that they are subject to change via any future DoVA C&P Examinations. If you are given an increased DoVA final rating of "100% P&T" than future DoVA C&P Examinations will not be scheduled; in essence, keeping the DoVA rating at 100% but it's still not a DoVA protected rating.

BTW, with a DoVA 100% proposed rating, you may potentially qualify for additional federal, state and/or local government incentives; so, make that inquiry for potentially additional future benefits!

Thus, I quite often comment that "possessing well-informed knowledge is truly a powerful equalizer."

Best Wishes!

The DOD can not change the proposed ratings from the VA. The VA is the rating authority.

Do you know if you are PDRL or TDRL (permanent or temporary retirement)?

You are welcome! :)

In retrospect, based upon my current U.S. Army IPEB findings, my TDRL DoD proposed rating adopted by the DoVA D-RAS, is subject to change due to the forthcoming six-month re-evaluation after military disability retirement.

From an U.S. Army perspective, to that extent as based upon the trend for significantly lower disability rating on TDRL re-evaluations, I am definitely not looking forward to my TDRL six-month re-evaluation with IWA then new rating determination by the USAPDA PEB.

Whether this implementation is supportive of USC statues or not since U.S. Army (DoD IDES case) TDRL re-evaluations are placed in the DoD Legacy DES process, the NCRPEB SPEBC stated that the USAPDA PEB is using the civilian contractor called IWA for TDRL re-evaluations then using their examination report/results (along with any provided and/or obtained documentation within the re-evaluation period) to determine the new DoD rating; totally removing the DoVA D-RAS process for re-rating determinations. :(

Thus, I quite often comment that "possessing well-informed knowledge is truly a powerful equalizer."

Best Wishes!
