    I have a question so my status changed to preparation for decision on ebenefits does that mean anything? It should be getting rated soon.

    VA rating null and void

    It's unlikely to change because the proposed ratings will generally use the same information (mainly C&P exams), they should not change. It's possible they may order additional exams if they are deemed too old. Assuming you will be retired in a few months, you should be okay. I retired...

    First VES appointment coming up. What should I expect?

    I am not familiar with TDRL reevaluations. I know VES is a contractor VA uses in support of disability exams. I believe policy now is if put on TDRL you will have a Routine Future Exam at 6 months of TDRL. Assuming this is your TDRL condition, it's very likely this exam would have implications...

    First VES appointment coming up. What should I expect?

    It's likely a routine future exam for your MH condition. If you down play things, I would argue it'd be more stressful possibly losing TDRL.

    Extending MEB timeline to get to 20

    Along with the previously mentioned, C&P exams could be rescheduled (due to a clinic staffing issue, happened to me); reschedule as late as possible. You mentioned having OSA, so if you don't submit the sleep study I believe the contractor will have to set one up for you, (more delay...

    Can I start MEB process and get surgeries after seperation?

    I would recommend anyone needing surgery while in the military, to get them while still in. I say this because the sick leave you get is without limit. The time to earn enough sick leave while a civ takes literally years to accrue. If time permits, I'd recommend correcting the shoulder...

    Peeblo interactivity

    I made zero contact with the PEBLO, hoping I'd ride it out a bit longer. The PEBLO called me only when the findings came back from the PEB. I wouldn't expect anything more than the minimum from a PEBLO. The could have hundreds of cases they are managing. You could also call the VBA to...

    Appealing the Navy/Marine Corps Formal PEB decision. -Timeline?

    I would inquire with the attorney at the PEBLO office to see if you are found unfit, if TERA is an option. I've heard of several E6-E7s with 15+ years of service getting it, after waiving the medical retirement/separation. You would have to wait to act until the findings are back from IPEB, but...

    IU second psy eval?

    Is it normal to do another psy eval in connection with a IU claim if the primary disability(on the IU claim)is the PTSD? Yes, as it is essentially a claim for increase. Should I be worried about them trying to reduce my rating? This is a possibility. However, due process rules apply if this...
