3MAR21 - Got call from MEBLO.
4MAR21 - Met with MEBLO.
5MAR21 - Legal counseling and signed for IDES election.
9MAR21 - IDES legal counseling and received email from MSC to schedule.
10MAR21 - Meeting with MSC.
11MAR21 (estimate, can't remember exact date) - Scheduled C&P exams.
17MAR21 - DTAP/MDB class.
23MAR21 - Hearing, labs, and head to toe C&P exams.
25MAR21 - Psych C&P exam.
29MAR21 - Eye C&P exam.
01APR21 - Dental C&P exam.
09APR21 - VA Claim says it has been updated but no new information is showing.

PEBLO said they were awaiting my VA exams before we can continue.


Question for anyone: how likely is it to be found FIT during a MEB? I have plantar fasciitis (bilateral, surgery on both without relief), chronic migraines, etc. Living in uncertainty is never ideal, I'm sure most/all of you understand that feeling. My referred conditions were three related to my plantar fasciitis, if anyone has experience with that. I'm not fighting to be found fit since I can barely stand to take a shower due to the pain anymore but I was just curious.

Found that my DBQs were inputted into Tricare Online and was able to see my VA exams on 8April21, I assume that's what prompted the update in the VA claim. Reached out to PEBLO to see if this is what he was waiting on this morning.

Just thought I'd share that you can review your exams on the Tricare website for anyone interested.

2JUN21 - VA Claim was updated, in "preparation for decision" phase.
17JUN21 - PEBLO called and let me know that they are awaiting my NARSUM from my doctor and hopefully will be signing my paperwork this week or next.

My doctor has since left NTC (Point Loma) due to finishing his residency, hoping this isn't going to impact my case any but I believe it may be why it is taking so long to get the NARSUM.

2JUL21 - Went over paperwork and NARSUM with attorney, signed and submitted.

When speaking with my attorney, she said cases are averaging around 75 days at the PEB right now (approx. 2.5 - 3 months or 10-12 weeks). She said this is due to PEB personnel PCS'ing causing a lack of personnel (which many other people have already stated on here).

Seems kind of weird that VA.gov too so long to update you to the "pending approval" status. As far as I know, that basically just means that they have your proposed rating and that once your PEB wraps up and you separate honorably it will go from proposed to approved. My package was sent off to the PEB on 02JUN21 and VA.gov updated to "pending decision approval" on 09JUN21.

The next day (19Aug) it changed and said closed. Now it just states that my BEL was sent out, who knows when I'll get that information. I'll be reaching out to my attorney this week at some point to see if she has any info.

Any news yet ?
Nah. Nothing yet.

I spoke to a NWW rep last week and he said something along the lines of "I can see there's progress being made on your case but I don't have any other information other than that." Reached out to my PEBLO over two weeks ago, no response. Reached out to my attorney last week, no response.

Looks like my case has been with the medical officer for 63 days as of the latest PEBLO report.
