I just had two quick questions about your specific situation if you had a moment. First, I noticed that there was approximately a month between the case going historical and you accepting your findings. Was that due to the QA phase that occurs after the DoVA completes their proposed findings? Second, in your circumstance, did the DoD adopt the percentage that the VA had proposed specifically for your REFERRED UNFIT condition?
Yes & yes. QA phase was the longest portion of this entire process, the PEB kept quoting me 25 to 30 days, however if you're like me and severely impatient, you might get lucky like I did and found a rep over the phone from the VA who will neither confirm or deny your proposed rating. If you can't, it's 10 business days til they can fax it to your PEBLO. And yes, for both IDES and LDES, the DOD uses VA rating system, and your overall DOD will be for ONLY your "referred to PEB" condition(s).
