    Need help deciphering this garbage

    So, I haven't been back here in a very long time, but I am almost to the one year mark of my retirement and have run into a few issues with the VA. First: Dependents. I had them while I was active duty, they were reported as part of my MEB/PEB to the VA, I had to turn in the form 2 more...

    Last Question

    We are very careful with money, and have nothing extra, but 5 people to support really eats the money. As far as how we will do it for a month with no pay? Travel Pay, and family. We get over 3K in travel, 80% is paid in advance. But It does not deposit until the day we leave, so gotta get...

    orders process/steps? need info please!?!?

    I have lost the number, but the APDA (HRC) are the ones who do the grade determination. It all happens at the same time your orders are being processed. You can call the HRC and check status, that's what I did, and 15 minutes later I had orders in the system and was picking them up an hour...

    Have Orders Will I get Travel Pay?

    Orders say I am authorised dependants, so I know I should get mileage at .23/mi, but what about meals an lodging allowances? There is me, my wife and three children. Obviously I should, but cant seem to find an answer. They will hold my last check, so how else could I be expected to get a car...

    I'm DONE!!!

    No. The APDA approves your ratings and then HRC does grade determinations and things of that nature, then populates you in the TRANSPO System. From that point your orders are cut by your local transitions office.

    I'm DONE!!!

    Ah yes, the results... Fantastic actually, 60/80 PDRL, honourable discharge as far as I know. I've never had any adverse action in my career, not even a negative counselling.

    And here it is ladies and gents. I'm done. I have not posted much here, but this place has been a wealth of knowledge, and putting the pieces together that I have gathered here has accelerated my process by leaps and bounds. So thanks to anybody's brain I've picked. Dont give up...

    TIMELINE: MEB THROUGH PEB

    Seattle as well, I am just obnoxious with these people though. If we have to maintain timelines, then they should have to as well. I have bothered everyone in this process to death. I am always on the phone asking questions. My advice would be to physically go in and see your MSC and see if...

    Stuck at VA for ratings ( new info!!!!)

    I've been a little quicker. MEDEVAC in June of last year, Started MEB Nov 4, got preliminary ratings 2 weeks ago. Pending approval now. But I'm not nice, and if I haven't heard anything by Friday, I will call the PEB and ask what the problem is. It took 4 days to get my Unfit, why in the...

    Stuck at VA for ratings ( new info!!!!)

    PEBLO is wrong, or at least passing wrong info...Imagine that. If you are Pending Decision Approval, your ratings are with the PEB waiting to be approved. All the VA has to do is get the ratings back and send you your Ratings to be reviewed and Accepted.
