    PEB formal boards postponed due to Covid-19?

    My PEBLO has informed me that they are currently not hearing any formal boards because of Covid-19. Anyone else confirm this? FYI was rated 70 VA and 0 DOD and was in the process of waiting for an appeal. Thanks for the info in advance.

    Appeal of ratings

    I was rated at 70% VA and 0% DOD. I have a genetic condition that the VA rated since it may have been “aggregated” by my service. The DOD found the opposite, saying that it was the normal progression of the disease. My attorney recommended an appeal because it “couldn’t hurt”. Today I found that...

    What should I do. I received my packet back and its only giving me 20% for DOD and 80% VA now. The reason I want to fight this is because the examiner only used my QTC ROM DQB forms any other documents I provided even a 2nd opinion ROM weren't evaluated at all and they really screwed me over...

    I don't understand this process

    I received my IPEB ratings and I want to appeal but I am overwhelmed with the amount of information and decisions so I am confused. 1. I have 10 days to make a decision on the IPEB ratings. Does that mean I only have 10 days to submit medical records & appeal information? I have to make...

    VARR question

    Hi all. Sorry if this is a sort of silly question. I think I know the answer but I want to verify. If you request a VARR, and the VA accepts it and agrees to increase your percentage, does that mean your DOD percentage will automatically increase too for that referred condition? I did a VARR for...

    Appeal Avenues

    What appeal avenues are available if someone wants to stay in the Air Force but has been found unfit and was given VA ratings, etc. Do they have a method to appeal just for staying in? I'm asking for one of my E-6's that has been in for 14.5 years. She can do her job but they still MEB'd her.
