Hello all. Ive had two fusion surgeries withing the last year due to the first one failing. I was told that MEB was going to be initiated, and the only reason for this is I can't fly anymore. After hearing this, I then turned in my retirement letter and have recieved an approved date three weeks prior to receiving an email that my MEB package had been recieved. I have right at 19 years. Do they take my time left, and an approved retirement date into consideration to allow me to hit 20 and retire?

There are numerous levels of appeals in the process to include but not limited to:

Narsum rebuttal
MEB appeal
PEB appeal
FPEB
VARR
PDA appeal

Each and every one of these allows for a 10 day timeline for you to seek counsel before signature. This alone gives you an extra 60 days. The timelines for each stage will be 30 days or more... the VARR can be 2-3 months. You also have terminal leave. If you’re at 19, don’t sweat it. You can easily drag it out for a year.

I would love to be a fly on the wall when you tell your PEBLO this.

What would cause you to put in a retirement letter?

"The Physical Evaluation Board (PEB) will use the presumption of fitness rules when adjudicating a veteran’s case if they will qualify for a regular retirement. The Disability Evaluation System (DES) compensates disabilities when they contribute to career termination and the resulting career loss. The PEB will conclude the veteran as fit by presumption if their narrative summary (NARSUM) is dated within the presumption period which begins one year prior to your mandatory removal date (MRD). Veterans are considered pending retirement when the NARSUM is completed within 12 months of their MRD and will be eligible for AFS retirement at their MRD."

Why not? Is this not a good thing to do?
Why not? Was putting my letter in not a good thing.
