    Coming up on my 3 year TDRL mark, no re-exam scheduled...

    My most recent(and only) C&P exam was done in August of 2016, about a year before I was put on TDRL and I haven't heard about getting one since.

    Coming up on my 3 year TDRL mark, no re-exam scheduled...

    Hello everyone. A bit of backstory. I was put on TDRL September of 2017, 100% VA and DOD(Navy). At my 20-ish month mark I contacted the PEB folks and they said they would "put me at the top of the list", or something to that effect. A few months later I called again and got something like "We're...

    Navy TDRL PPE question

    I'm currently 100%, but my benefit letter says it's not permanent and that I will have future appointments. My METS level is less than three to cause fatigue and dizziness. Thank you for the information.

    Navy TDRL PPE question

    Ron, Thank you for the information. Luckily I do not have PTSD or any mental health issues. I checked my benefit letter, and while I am 100% (100 for the heart and 60% for the rest), it says "no" for the P&T question. I also am not IU. I guess mainly my question was about how being OCONUS...

    Navy TDRL PPE question

    I see. I was under the impression that in order to be T&P you had to be less than 100%, and you request them to rate you at 100%. I also thought if you were T&P, that's when you're not allowed to work. It's been over three years since my C&P exam so sorry if my recollections are wrong.

    Navy TDRL PPE question

    My METS rating is very low. The most strenuous activity that I can do is go up about half a flight of stairs at a time. That said, the work would be completely sedentary in nature. I've been seeing the VA for over two years and I've been rated at 100% since my original med board. Thanks.

    Navy TDRL PPE question

    Hello everyone, I have been TDRL since September of 2017 for heart failure(100%VA/DoD). The board said I was "unstable" at the time, so I was given TDRL. I was never contacted for a PPE, so on my two-year retirement mark, I called Millington, and they basically said that they'd forgotten about...

    Question about 100% VA disability with SMC-S

    At some point, if your condition is not expected to improve will your rating change to P&T? I'm guessing at some point I will have to undergo another evaluation?

    Question about 100% VA disability with SMC-S

    How would I know if my disabilities are considered P&T, or permanent. Will it say that somewhere on eBenefits?

    Question about 100% VA disability with SMC-S

    Thank you. I guess my only question then would be could your rating ever go down? Do they ever get to a point where they will say that my rating would be locked in for the rest of my life? Unfortunately, my health is pretty bad, and I'm just trying to figure out finances.

    Question about 100% VA disability with SMC-S

    To start off, I was medically retired, TDRL, September of 2017. IDES found me unfit, and the VA rated my referring condition at 100%. When I got my formal letter in the mail after I retired, my other conditions totaled over 60%, so I then was eligible for SMC-S. I have a few questions about all...

    Almost done (My Case Timeline)

    Well, it's your right to either appear, or do it over the phone. My lawyer said my case was pretty open and shut since the original decision was egregiously wrong, so there wasn't a need for me to appear lol

    Almost done (My Case Timeline)

    I didn't have to, but I opted to. And I did the hearing over the phone. Lawyer presented all my stuff, and the new board found the original board had screwed up and re-rated me.

    Almost done (My Case Timeline)

    Hey everyone, been following the forum for a little while and I understand how frustrating and awful the entire MEB/PEB process is. I just created an account for the sole purpose of listing my entire timeline, in hopes that it will help someone. Please feel free to ask any questions. The first...
