    TDRL Final Eval Complete; No Word Since

    Do you have to take your own copy of VA records to your TDRL appointment? Or did they already have access to a copy when you got there?

    TDRL Appointment - Do I need to request my VA records?

    I believe it will come down to downloading the My HealtheVet records. Hopefully they will accept them and review given it's coming directly from me and not in a sealed envelope from the Department of Veterans Affairs. We can digitally download and send them if whoever accepts them that way.

    TDRL Appointment - Do I need to request my VA records?

    I did not get a phone number for my appointment this time unlike my first go around. I had to make calls to offices on Scott AFB since I never been there to find out where it is. The Air Force gave me the wrong place at Fort Campbell last time. Sent me to the Mental Health Clinic but the...

    TDRL Appointment - Do I need to request my VA records?

    Anyone who has recently been through a TDRL appointment, did the examining provider already have your VA records? Or is it a case by case basis on the clinic performing the evaluation if they take the initiative to request them? By the time I go over people's head to get what I need, to fight...

    TDRL Appointment - Do I need to request my VA records?

    I am scheduled for a TDRL re-evaluation for the Air Force coming up at Scott Air Force Base. When they ask for you to provide records, the VA tells me my file is too big to release to me which is strange given it is for an evaluation. I was told again the same thing for a Social Security...

    When are you notified of removal from TDRL?

    Thank you for help and reply @brohammer I attempted to contact HQ AFPC, could only get a hold of a TFSC representative. Every direct call transferred to the TDRL office would never get answered, same for emails to the TDRL box. Supposedly, the TFSC representative said a letter was sent on May...

    Can the med board process or VA change your referred mental health condition?

    Simple answer, yes it can. In 2015, I was given the rubber stamp 50% rating for the diagnosis of adjustment disorder with 'depressed mood' by the Air Force during the MEB process. The military providers would not accurately diagnose me. My first appointment with the VA a month after being placed...

    When are you notified of removal from TDRL?

    I was placed on TDRL on March 10, 2015 and my upcoming 5 year expiration mark is coming up next year March 2020, about 8-9 months left. The Air Force has only scheduled me for one TDRL Exam which I made sure to attend and it took place on January 2018. A month later, I received the letter of...

    TDRL for PTSD/Depression

    The Air Force, (assuming the same with the Navy) gave me the option to have the nearest MTF do the evaluation or have a VA/Civilian provider do the re-eval. The Air Force will send you guidance for a civilian/VA provider to complete the evaluation. They also said if the evaluation performed by a...

    TDRL for PTSD/Depression

    I would recommend taking all medication, ALL recommended treatment and do not resist them at all. In the end, they will find you "non-compliant" for recommended treatment and that won't look good for helping your case. I questioned my psychiatrist last Friday as to why the Air Force would say...

    Does anyone go from TDRL to Active?

    tony292 is exactly right about the sleep being detrimental to one's health and could result in car accidents. I've had chronic sleep impairment since 2012 and was one of the reasons for being boarded out. Had some car accidents while I was still in and 2 most definitely can accredit to a lack of...

    VA Proposed Disability Decrease

    Can anyone shed some light on what is meant by "material evidence required" to reduce a 100% rating? I have 100% but it is a temporary disability. I have a VA Re-Evaluation next week and this comes just 1 month after the Air Force performed a TDRL Re-Evaluation on me. My findings were 100% and...

    How to contact USAFR IPEB?

    I first experienced a situation like this when I was supposed to come up for an MEB. I never had contact with a PEBLO. My Chain of Command came to my hospital because I was being treated in a civilian psychiatric hospital. Told me I was going up for a MEB. When I returned to duty after being...

    Currently TDRL and about to go through a Formal PEB

    I realize it would be hard to do in a short time frame but my best case scenario for one who wants to fight coming off TDRL for a return to duty would be to have steady employment if you are not already employed. I recommend a civilian equivalent occupation to your AFSC would be good proof you...

    So I took my c&p exam and I don't think it went all that good

    If you don't get the desired outcome, you need to appeal it if applicable. At that point, make the most of that opportunity and say everything you wrote down to best help your case.

    Are mental health conditions suppose to start a MEB right away ?

    I guess it depends on the situation. I had several instances before I was discharged. I tried to commit suicide in December of 2012, I spent 10 days inpatient and a good month to 5 weeks in Partial Hospitalization followed by placement on the high interest list. I had weekly visits with my...

    Does your DD-214 show any specifics of your diagnosis?

    I am medically retired, currently on TDRL for mental health issues. I have a 2 something RE-Code and does not imply anything about my health diagnosis. It does indicate it was a medical discharge.

    Denying Medication

    If you do get out and go to the VA, they will likely prescribe medication. By not taking medication, this can jeopardize your benefits. I can't tell you how many times I've wanted to throw the pills down and tired of the weight gain but I want to keep my benefits. They still found me...
