It's been almost 6 months for me. People complaining about 90 days... ridiculous to me. 2 weeks ago they told me that it was in the "final administrative process" and I should be getting my results any day. I'm not holding my breath anymore. I somehow doubt I'm ever going to get the results.

I hear ya! May 16 was the date my condition was discovered. They should have started it then because per reg: You must start the MEB process if the person has been hospitalized (which I was on May 16) for depression.

I hope I get the results before its been 2 years "in the system"

6 months for the whole process or 6 months of waiting just for the IPEB? The weird thing is from searching these forums, I have seen some posts of people who were getting results in 4-6 weeks. I wonder if it is dependent upon the complexity condition? How can some people get results in under 2 months while others who's package was submitted earlierto IPEB still wait?

This is 6 months for just the IPEB. My package was sent off to the IPEB on August 5th. I've yet to get results. My MEB portion took about a month.

That's not cool at all. I feel you pain. We should not be subject to that kind of delay. There must be more to it though, because others have posted on this forum with packages that went up in October with results in November. How do they get their results before you? We must be mission something. They are obviously not going in numerical order, or I guess like I said in my previous post the process must vary per condition and the complexity of the condition.

Air Force for some reason takes longer. Don't quote me....I'm not "in the know". Just what i've seen over the last year and a half on the board is AF pkgs going to AFPC are taking 3-4 months, sometimes longer--at AFPC. I don't think i've seen an AIR FORCE case get decided in the extremely short time periods. If someone told you you would be "done" in 4-5 wks...they much have not been paying attention. Recently, it seems we are closer to 16wks rather 12 (just what i've seen on the board)

I know everyone is anxious, but there should never have been an expectation that it would get done in a few weeks. My NARSUM is just about done....but i just had wrist surgery to repair the ligiments that were torn. I'm trying to get that covered so it is forced a minor delay.

Maybe someone with contacts at AFPC can lets know "officially" how long they are taking now.....

Then I see others that took 4 months. I had a co-worker that went through the whole process at the end of 2008. His was @ IPEB for 14 weeks. It was over the holidays so you could take a couple weeks off because of that (I guess) and come up with 12 weeks, which seems to be the average. I spoke to my PEBLO and she says "8-10 weeks" like it's a practiced speech. I have a problem believing this though because of all the disparity for everyone that has posted in this thread. It must be dependent upon the condition, right? The way I see it, there is no way that they are doing the packages in order. Are there any PEBLO's or some people with updated timelines that can chime in?

Talked to my Peblo yesterday (Air Force) and reached my 90 days yesterday also she said that it would be another 3 weeks or so. So that would be at 15-16 weeks. I am going on a cruise to the caribean so it doesn't bother me too much but i sure am ready to go home already. Anyone know how long after you sign off they cut your seperation orders/outprocessing timeline? School starts March 29th and just trying to figure out if i should register or not. Thanks.

My package got sent to Randolph on Nov 8th. So it looks like I might receive results in a month. Looking at your timeline. I read a lot of your post and this is depressing as hell. My daycare quit because they thought I would have an answer before now and wanted to fill my son's slot with someone that would be there for a while. This process doesn't just effect us.......it makes it hell on our kids also. So basically, I will have to find another provider for 2 months. It's so unfair to my little 2 year old who doesn't adjust to new situation very well. The Air Force seems to screws it members and also the member's family. Are you happy with your results or are you going to appeal?

Were any of your cases concerning multiple conditions that needed to be rated or was it just one? I'm hoping this has something to do with the time-line. I only have one condition and it should be pretty straight forward.

Trust me when I say I feel your pain. Waiting has been very difficult for me but what I did to pass time is a little pre-planning incase my decision was to get out. Why? When your decision comes back, there is not alot of time to get stuff done especially when you have a family like myself. Just brainstorm and think of things you need to get done and/or in order. Since I'm getting out, the pre-planning worked out really great because all of my ducks are in a row. This will make my transition smooth. Stay positive, keep doing your job to the best of your ability and focus on your family. Cause believe me that was the only thing that kept me sane :)

I wonder why it's so short for us (Germany), friend of mine, now on terminal, it took his packet to get back from ipeb (walter reed) 24 days. That was right before I sent mine in on 10 Feb He had 2 injuries, ended up with 40% Why is it taking some people 3-4 months?? I can maybe understand a time difference with different branches of service, but why the variation within the same service, same location??
