Started the Medboard process April this year and I recently received my unfit for duty memo this past Monday 31July17. I checked ebenifits and vets.gov just to navigate and get to know the sites. Anyway, I happened to notice that is stated closed and that my claim decision is ready and desiring letter has been sent as of Aug 2. Don't really know how accurate that is but curious on timeline on about how long it takes from this point to get my proposed ratings from my PEBLO. I tried searching through all the threads but needless to say I didn't make it through all of them!! Thanks for the help!!

After 7-10 days you can call VA and request them to fax you a copy, since they send your letter to your PEBLO. If you do this however, it is best not to let your PEBLO know since it is basically back dooring them. Other than that, it'll probably take a couple weeks for you to get called in, some sooner, some later. At least if you know your VA proposed ratings, that'll put your mind at ease a bit.

How long was it before you actually got called in by your PEBLO for the ratings? Was it just the VA rating or was it also the accepted DoD rating?

My eBenefits account also shows complete and package mailed out on 6 SEP. Though it is early, I'm wondering how to find out what the ratings are. Is the MSC or PEBLO able to see the ratings prior to the letter being sent to them by the VA?

My PEBLO called me about 3 weeks after VA finished with it. The PEBLO waited until the entire package was complete to have me come in. I did however call the VA and asked them to fax me my proposed ratings. Just don't tell your PEBLO if you do this since it's basically back dooring them.

Your MSC can see the ratings but its 50/50 if they are going to tell you before your PEBLO does. Mine told me the ratings before my claim closed out.
Thank you all for your advice. I tried asking the MSC for my VA rating today. As you said, it was a 50/50 shot. The MSC wouldn't disclose anything to me--stated it was only for the PEBLO to do.
