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.
Hey thanks; appreciate the fill in. It seems like you're right on target on DOD, VA, and SSDI disability.
On your PEB Timeline; 30JUN16 you got promoted to MAJ, that's squared away. As of yesterday, 4MAY19, I got pass for my MAJ, maybe it's the MH; although I have a flawless OER as an O3. It's getting to that stage brother; no job, trying to keep up with VA appointments.
What are your thoughts? I have one more boarding for O4 next year; and if that fails, I'm discharged for good. I need to walk away with at least 30% DOD rating for Tricare; but I feel like I'm done, got to much going on brother.
Again, congratulations bro on your medical retirement.
