The New DODI 1332.18 & Why It Is Important to You—John B Gately

On 11/10/22, DODI 1332.18 was updated with mandatory guidance to be followed by all the armed services when processing PEB cases. Here are just a few reasons why this update is important for anyone undergoing the PEB process to review and understand: 1. In this update, there is a provision that allows service members to specifically demand that the FPEB cannot seat as board members anyone who participated in the adjudication process of your case at the IPEB. See Section 3.3.c.2.b of DODI1332.18. This means that you can exclude IPEB members from sitting on your FPEB, but you can also keep them if you think that their presence would help your case. 2. Prior to this update being issued, service members could only submit written appeals of adverse findings by the FPEB panel of their service. But, under Section 3.3d.1 of DODI1332.18, you can now request an additional hearing at which counsel can represent you. While no one knows yet how each service will implement this provision, this...

Selected text written by Jason Perry a few years ago. A revival of his post is warranted due to a few isolated incidents. The bottom line: No one is superior to another on this board (Jason is the owner of course). This is applicable to all categories of members, moderators and visitors/regular members alike. Having a unique expertise does not give one the right to belittle others. If you receive information which you think is wrong, say so without insulting the person (a volunteer) who went to the trouble of providing an answer.

Disability Severance Pay?

I just wanted to start a new thread on disability severance pay and how it works as it seems many people on here have questions about it, including me, but aren’t getting solid answers. Please provide any input you have on this topic to help others out. What I know about it is you should receive it somewhere around 20 business days after your separation date. If you were rated at 0% for your referred condition they won’t recoup any of the severance pay and I believe I’ve heard of your rates 100% by the VA they won’t recoup any of it either, correct me if I’m wrong. You also won’t be taxed on it if your referred condition is combat related or if you are receiving any monthly compensation from the VA. It is otherwise taxed at 22% Federal tax. If your severance pay is taxed you can receive a refund from DFAS by submitting a claim online at https://www.DFAS.mail/debt and claims/submit claim.html To submit a refund claim you will need your DD214 (member copy 4), The entire...

Apologies, folks! You may have noticed that on attempting to log in today, there was an "Account Suspended" notice. To clarify, that was my hosting account. I had missed the hosting invoice and they suspended the account which was cleared up when I saw the suspension notice and then paid the hosting bill. We are all now Un-Suspended!
Advertisments are gone- for now!

Advertisement with Google have been a way that I have used to help defray the costs of running this forum. They were "fine" for that purpose and have definitely helped. Still, they always annoyed me (I have the ability to turn them off for certain groups or members, but, I kept them on for me so that I could see what members see). Well, they annoyed me to the point that I have- at least temporarily- killed ads on the PEB FORUM. I have some ideas about the way forward for the site and I think that there is a lot more that I can do to make the site better. My original hope (once upon a time) was that if every member who just dropped in and was willing to donate about $1 monthly, I would have enough money to make this community so much better (I just looked at Analytics and I am showing about 3K users logging in every month on average). With that kind of support, I think I could do incredible things with the site, content wise, site wise, and also thinking better, do great things...

Jason Perry submitted a new resource: SECNAVINST 1850.4F - DEPARTMENT OF THE NAVY DISABILITY EVALUATION SYSTEM Regulation
The DoN has changed its DES regulations (effective 27 JUN 2019). This regulation supersedes the previous SECNAVINST 1850.4E. It is much shorter than the previous version, however, there is an additional new regulation, SECNAV M-1850.1 (September 2019), which covers many important issues and provides detailed guidance. (I will post that resource separately).
