Hello all. I was referred to MEB (P3 profile placed and signed by specialty clinic) on 28 March. I was told I would be contacted by a PEBLO within 3 business days, but it has been a couple weeks now and my P3 doesn't have the approving signature (second signature) yet. I reached out to my PCM and was told it could take up to 30 days for the approving authority to sign the P3 - but they also commented that if it doesn't get signed before the 30th day then the profile will expire automatically. Just looking for info on the process and what steps I should be taking to ensure everything is completed and such. My PCM didn't really provide any information beyond I will have a lot of appointments... Thanks.

Normally when your PCM puts in a P3 profile, it will be routed to IDES/MEB office in your duty station for an MEB doctor (the final approving authority) to review your medical records before authorizing or denying the P3 profile which usually takes about 5-7 business days. Most cases of delay in signing the P3 profile, like in your case, is usually when your PCM routes your profile to an IDES/MEB office in a different base/installation. What you need to do now is to go to the IDES/MEB office in your base, and speak with anyone there that you have a P3 profile awaiting a final signature. They will pull up your information, and route your P3 accordingly.

Good luck. I hope this helps!!!

I reached out to the PEBLO office at my duty station and after some bouncing around they said my profile was routed to another duty station, just like you said! So I have to wait for the MEB physician at my local station to pull it back and then review it and such. Hopefully it goes smoothly. Thanks for the info!
