1. Yes definitely go throug IDES, they should be required to extend you while you’re in ides.

2. If you are IDES and not legacy then dod is required to use the same ratings as VA. But get a competent lawyer and do a lot of your own research, don’t trust that it will all work out.

Tony; can you drill-down on line 2: "If you are IDES and not legacy then DOD is required to use the same ratings as VA" I'm new at this.

Appreciate your expertise brother.

So what that means is say you have pTSD and VA rates it at 70%. That means that DOD cannot rate you at 50 or 30% for PTSD. They have to rate you at 70 just like VA did.

The bad part is that DOD while they cannot change a VA rating, they can decide what conditions are or are not “fit for duty”. So let’s say VA rates you at 30% for back problems and 50% for ptsd. Dod can decide that either or both conditions are or are not fit for duty.
