  • November 23rd: Last VA exam completed
  • December 18th: All QTC Findings and NARSUM returned.
  • December 23rd: A second case was opened and closed on VA.gov, no idea what this means and the VA won't tell me

Just got off the phone with my PEBLO and VA, still nothing. Will update as I go.

A first claim is opened by the VA to access your health ISO the MEB.

A second claim is opened to pay the veteran upon separation/retirement.

Very fast turn around. Did they ever tell you about the second case on VA.gov? I’ve been trying to track my case on there but can’t get much.

From what I have found, and was referenced briefly above, the first is for the QTC and tracking, the second is final percentages and payment.

yeah, I feel that. You can always apply and put a Letter in your apps stating the situation, worst they do is say no. Also, highly recommend looking into Operation Warfighter. Its an internship program you can do while active. I did it for a while during my process, I walked away with a killer addition to my resume and two glowing recommendations, and they were trying really hard to get me to apply to a position but it was out of state of where I wanted to move.

Personally, I would cause a ruckus. Technically yes, they have the power to say no and hold you. However, if you stir enough pots about how its a Skillbridge/Transition benefit that will benefit you in the long run, I don't think any competent SNCOIC/OIC would hold you. If they do, request mast, make them tell you exactly why they are holding you and have them explain that to higher. Again, this is only me, and fairly close to what I had to do to get approved, and I think it was worth the few days of frustration.
