any new updates? your last step posted is where I currently am. I'm wondering how long after found in-fit I will be out?
Unfortunately as of today I still have not heard back from anyone about my findings. I am close to my original EAS so i had a CO interview yesterday and my CO said he will look into my medboard status. But as of a month ago when I last spoke with my medboard lawyer he said people thats started the process after me were getting their findings. Not sure why mine is taking so long. I have two addendums with my main injury as well as 18 things i claimed for my VA disability. Not sure if thats why but I will update this thread as soon as I find out.

have you tried to call the VA for updates, I literally called every day. then after I got information I called my PEBLO with the information and he gave me the rest of the information needed.

Hello all!
Sorry this took so long but

-3/5/19 Received call for findings and scheduled a meeting for 7th

-3/7/19 I submitted a rebuttal for my findings

I won’t explain all the details but VA gave me 100% but DOD gave me 20% for an orthopedic issue. I had a mental health addendum in but dr did a poor job with diagnosis in addendum so I am having my current psychiatrist write another one for my appeal. I recieved 100% for this MH condition so im expecting atleast 30% if not higher.

Any information on how a claim percent correlates to the DOD percent? Should I expect 100% DOD?

So they found you unFIT at IPEB but fit at FPEB? What was your final outcome?

Yes, unfortunately they found me unfit for my refering condition but not my addendum so I took it to a formal board but they found me fit for both. My newest update is that 12/02/19 Received unfit fining but awaiting VA %. Still have not heard back yet about official findings.

Why did you do a formal board if you were found unfit

Glad they got it correct the third time. Best of luck to you.

I only received 20% for one condition and wanted 30% so i only needed 10% with another condition to get medical retired to keep tricare for life and family.
