I have 21 years TIS. 8 years AD crew chief F16/F15s the rest as a dual status technician ANG crew chief F15. I bought my time back so my fed time is the same 21 years. I am currently on Owcp compensation since 10/27/22 for an injury while working on the civilian side which was exacerbated during drill. I was put on LWOP and forced to file a claim with the Dept of Labor. I was notified that I was unfit for duty on 11/4/23 I signed the 1180 to appeal the decision. I had 2 ILODs that weren't included in the narrative I specifically informed the mil Dr of nor was the exacerbation noted. I was contacted by the ODC attorney today 11/20/23. He said that my condition was accepted by the Dept of Labor so I couldn't claim it for compensation on the mil side. I have alot of other conditions they didn't include in the IPEB process. Specifically from OIF deployment to Balad AB Iraq, Guam, being stationed in Japan for 4 years, being a crew chief for almost 22 years, etc. He told me to think about what I wanted to do and didn't think I had a case to claim anything. I tried to request they considered all conditions as a whole in the beginning of this process and was told to claim all of that to the VA. I am going to request a review and that all conditions be considered. The attorney said that since I was found unfit for duty I would get the fers disability retirement and also have to apply for ssdi. Plus whatever the VA rating is. I put in an intent to file during the Pact Act period and hired an attorney to deal with the VA stuff. My consult with VA attorney is scheduled for 11/27/23. I just need help for the ipeb appeal process. Anyone have any advice?
