I am not sure if this is the right forum to ask. I apologize if it's not. I have 2 questions.

1. Can you get a VA rating if you have health issues that you didn't have before the army even if you are just ETSing and not getting meb-boarded? If yes, can the VA rating be done before the ETS date?
2. Do you have to be on a permanent profile to get recommended for meb board?

Typically you can submit your VA Claim up to 180 days prior to your ETS date for quick claims, as far as being 100% that it will be completed prior to your ETS date, no one can tell you whether or not that is possible.

the MEB Process is automatically initiated when you are placed on a P3 profile.

No. The IDES system is separate from Benefits Delivery at Discharge. Both can result in VA compensation payments, but only the IDES can award disability retirement from the DoD.

So the VA benefits are the same like monthly payments except for the DOD benefits? I am only taking about the va rating not the army(dod) rating.
