Indeed, congratulations on receipt of your IPEB findings to include finally reaching 20 AFS!Forgot to update this for future reference.
I received my ratings 30% DoD 100% VA TDRL and made it to my 20 year mark thankfully.
I wasn't to happy about some of the exams and processes I went through and had full intention to go to a formal board. Until I spoke with my VA rep and Attorney. With me being at 50% and 100% while I'm on TDRL, and having the retirement under my belt made it pointless considering the possibility of getting something lowered. All of my conditions were deemed service connected aside from hearing loss and I'll have healthcare to try and get better so I opted not to delay retiring.
One rating was deferred (Hypothyroidism) because of new rating criteria so that will probably be added once I do a new C&P for it. I haven't asked about that yet.....which I probably should.
Now I'm just waiting on Orders to start terminal. I signed my findings on Feb 9th and selected a retirement date of April 28th. Since I could only select a day 90 days out I'll be losing some leave as I already sold back my max amount. Whatever, keep it.
Thanks to everyone for the insight throughout this crazy train called IDES. Hopefully this helps someone out there.
Thought you still need actual retirement orders. Like with BUPERS ORDER XXXX on the top. I just got mine today and I have the same retirement date. Might want to make sure!TDRL Authorization message for April 28th. Just need to check out today and I'm on Terminal.
No. TDRL. But same thing. The authorization message comes out. Then you send your separation package to PSD and they generate up the orders through PERS. Getting your PDRL message is equivalent to when 20 year-ers get their Fleet Reserve approval message (3rd message overall). Doesn't mean they can just get up and leave. They still need their actual orders.Are you PDRL?
Yepp! My medical was clueless (I'm in San Diego) about that. I did my own research and found the DoD Instruction stating a disability physical counts as a separation one. And the fact I was found UNFIT for service doesn't make since. How can I be unfit for service and fit for separation? So our PSD let me skip that, as well.Mine came in yesterday. Guess I should've been more clear on that. Once I agreed with the findings I started my retirement package. Only thing I needed was the Auth message to submit my Terminal Chit so I could add in the dates. So it was basically done before I even recieved the authorization message.
The Sep physical isn't required if found unfit so I skipped that.
(7) For service members being separated follow-ing a finding of "unfit for continued Naval service" by the PEB, the procedures outlined in article 15-20(2) through 15-20(6) above do not apply. Instead, an SF 600 entry will be made stating that the service member has been found unfit and is being processed for separation from active duty service.
You too! I had 60 days on the books so I'm losing a bunch since I already sold back 60. Its all good though. I'm satisfied with the outcome overall.Yepp!

My orders came in yesterday, as well! It's like we're moving at the same pace! I start PTDY and terminal on March 15 with the same retirement date as you.
Good luck out there, brother! Hope all goes well for you in your recovery post-Navy!
