I received my retirement and statement for my retirement pay for December, but not any backpay or information on if I am. How did you obtain information on your back pay?Yeah. Im going to give it one more week and call the person Tinker was in contact with. My backpay deposits are pretty close to the totals I figured, just want to look at their numbers for peace of mind.
What paperwork did you submit when you applied for the review board?I just got an email from the PDBR stating this:
We have updated your new address. Your case has met the board and is awaiting Service review. Cases are currently taking 24 months.
Physical Disability Board of Review
Am I at the last stages, or do I still have a ways to go?
Received letter from Wounded Warriors Program Dec 2016
Applied Jan 2017
Application was accepted Mar 2017
Received letter that my case was adjudicated and sent to PDBR from review August 2017

Email Stating: . Your case has met the board and is awaiting Service review. Cases are currently taking 24 months. April 2017
Does anyone knows what happens next? Anything will be appreciated.
There are many posts in this thread (17 tabs) that discuss the PDBR process and experiences pertaining to timelines. Recommend they be reviewed.Hello everyone, I am new to this site. I see a lot of good information here and find it very useful in determining the process and what to expect it.
So, I'll begin by asking for advice. I recently sent the DD Form 294 back to the PDBR, in November 2018. I know its early but I didn't think this was real so I was really late in sending it back. After looking at it again and doing some research I decided to seek more information into the legitimacy of this. You guys have given me so hope. Is there anything anyone can offer as to this process.
I have not heard anything from the PDBR even saying that my application was received.
Give me some confidence please.
Congratulations and welcome to the forum! I just got my letter from the Navy approving retirement Friday, and it is surreal. I don't know whether to laugh cry or scream with joy. It's still all so fresh. I know I have a while to go before I have orders and an ID card, but that wait is well worth it. Take time to enjoy this moment and celebrate it.First of all, I’m blessed to have received my orders this evening. That said, in getting my ID, do I have to go to an Army RSO, or can I take my orders to the Fort Worth JRB? If so, would they be able to assist with DEERS enrollment?
Just got 2 emails from the VA informing me about benefits that I may be eligible for. I have been out for a while and I am already enrolled in VA programs. What caught my eye was the email said "you are in the process of separating from the military and have received a DOD disability rating". I am hoping that my PDBR is coming to an end and the Army has made a decision.
"We understand that you are in the process of separating from the military and have received a DOD disability rating. You may therefore be eligible to apply to the Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment (VR&E) VetSuccess Program."
Anyone else get something like this before their claim was completed?
