    Update on my Transition Post Military

    Two months after medically retiring my VA claim has finalized. I received back pay a few days after that. The main condition I was referred to the MEB for, ME/CFS, was originally awarded 10%, but the VA backtracked their decision and deferred the condition for re-evaluation. I have the C&P exam...

    Congressional Inquiry Success!

    This post is well overdue. I have been swamped with retiring from the Air Force and getting everything set up for school. What I would like you all to gain from this post is that congressional inquiries can be very successful. However, I firmly believe that they should be reserved until all...

    Should I sell my leave back?

    I have been crunching the numbers on this scenario for nearly a year now and it always comes back as being more beneficial for me to sell my leave back instead of taking terminal leave. There is a big stigma about selling leave instead of taking terminal, but I believe in my situation it makes...

    I am coming to the end of my year long journey! The IPEB came back with permanent medical retirement at 30% and the VA is at 100%. I'll sign for my ratings later this week. This forum has been a tremendous resource for walking through this journey. I will stick around and answer questions...

    Fellow USAF members

    I am trying to gauge at the moment how far backed up the IPEB is right now. I saw someone comment the other day that their package was sent around Nov 17 and they haven't heard anything yet for being fit or unfit for duty. Are any of you all before this date? My package was sent to the IPEB Dec...

    Impartial Review result and what to do next?

    I am being boarded for a neurological condition that is called Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. Prior to my package getting sent to the IPEB I requested an impartial review of my records in hopes they would add my back injury for the IPEB to evaluate. I wanted my back added to the evaluation because...

    C&P Exam Redo Success!

    Thankfully I was able to redo my C&P exams last week and this week. I originally went through this process as a separatee back in March of this year and had a horrible experience with the physical examination doctor. Essentially, my problem was that the doctor didn't do a sufficient job with his...

    Adding conditions to the MEB?

    Out of my 38 claimed conditions under this process I currently only have 1 condition that I am being boarded for. I have my exams in a week and should be moving on to the next stage of the process after that. I asked my PEBLO about how does one add conditions to the MEB and she made it sound...

    NARSUM Diagnosis Inconclusive

    How does it work if my NARSUM Final Diagnosis and Recommendations are inconclusive? Will they hold off on the VA exams until a diagnosis is reached, or will they just rate my symptoms?

    Finally after waiting since April 29th my NARSUM and Commander's letter has been sent to AFPC today. My current DOS is June 28th and I should have an answer for whether I will be placed on med hold on June 27th or I will have to separate without out-processing the Air Force on June 28th. Long...

    IDES Questions

    On April 28th I was placed on code 37, and on May 4th my profile updated to reflect the change. I spoke with my PCM this week about what was next and she said she didn't know. After spending a few days reading through these forums I have a few questions: 1. Is the NARSUM next? And if so, what...

    Current timeline - beginning stages / questions

    History: I was on the verge of separating on my own volition when my PCM finally came through with submitting a request for an MEB (we have been talking about it back and forth since last year). I originally was going to start terminal leave on April 19th, but decided to postpone my separation...
