PEB Forum Veteran
So I'm hoping someone can chime in and help me get a better understanding of how the "intent to file" process works. So I submitted an intent to file in May of 2017 because I knew I was heading towards a med board. So what I was told was that it's very beneficial to submit the intent form while you prepare for a board or if you know you'll be expecting to apply for VA comp. So after I submitted that intent on ebenefits I went through a number of surgeries and received a ton of treatment. I contacted the VA and submitted my claim in March of 2018 so I was within the 12 month time limit. So here's my question... The PEB has found me unfit and now I'm waiting on my ratings. When I finally get everything, will I receive a big back-pay deposit dating back to when I submitted the intent to file form?
