    you need to check the V codes that will be on your PEB Unfit letter regarding your condition. example: Lumbar Degenerative Disc Disease (MEB Dx 1). (V1-No; V3-No; V4-Yes) This will tell you if your condition is tax free and if they will reduce your compensation. you want to have a Yes in any...

    Seattle Regional VA Timelines:

    I believe that the 199 comes from the PEB (definately not the VA) personally i believe on average we are seeing 2.5 to 4 weeks. i do recognize that others have taken much longer.

    Got my findnigs don't know what to do? please advice

    are you on the PDRL or the TDRL? if PDRL you are at almost the top rating of 75%. if you are on the TDRL i believe Jason posted on a tread earlier this week that states that you could get the condition re-evaluated. either way i think that you are in good shape.
