This is my first post here and I have a question for members that have gone through it before. I have been on a med board since Nov 2011 and my package and NMA were sent to DC in Dec 2011. I have been checking my status on the VA ebenefits site and it been in the review of evidence phase since January. Today, it finally changed to Preparation for a decision. I was wondering if anyone has any idea of the time frame from this point until I get some kind of word on a decision. Also, how exactly does the PEB factor into this. Does the package go back to the PEB after review from the VA for a fit or unfit decision or is that done prior to sending it to the VA. Just trying to plan a little bit for the future and I'm not exactly sure how the whole process works from this point. Thanks for any help.
