I got permanent disability retirement at 30% it was raised from 10% back in 06. I have 100% from the VA, since 2012. Is there going to be back pay from the Navy? For changing from severance to retirement an going to 30%?
Hi. I'm reaching out in hopes you can help with a question I have. My son was told by the med staff at Dover they could only file for the one condition that was most unfitting which they identified as POTS or heart arrythmia. He received his ratings which came back as 10% DOD /100% VA. I'm a bit surprised that the DOD component did not hit 30% (long story and many less than honest/moral acts by the AF docs) but he seems very unwilling to wait out fighting it and I am honestly concerned about his safety. I have a feeling that not all of his paperwork was submitted and some inaccurate paperwork was submitted but he was told "don't worry about it". 1. Is there anything he can do after he gets out if he signs the form 2. someone from the VA told him that this was golden and he didn't need to worry about the DOD piece. HELP????
My son is a marine recruit and was injured due to heatstroke. Currently in STC awaiting results of medical tests but he said dr. is scheduling PEB for next week. I've educated myself on the IDES process and that has not been initiated with my son; no MEB, nothing. Other than in reference to the second phase of the IDES, what PEB could the dr. be talking about? Is PEB also something that is done in order to be cleared for ELS? So confused.
hello brother, you seem very knowledgeable about this MEB process. Currently i just found out that i have been put in Medical board about two weeks ago. The problem is that my doctor put me in for med board under a different diagnosis and now i am worried and anxious about my situation because i might no longer have the chance for retirement. Now the problem is that i have combat PTSD, and i was diagnosed with PTSD unspecified last year 2019. Now, when i moved here in this new command, and see this doctor, we undergo PTSD treatments and talked about my experience. All of a sudden, when she decided to put me in for Medical board, she decided to put me in for Medical board under as "severe reactions to stress" now, under that diagnosis what is the likeliness of me getting DOD retired at all or my chances?? Thank you.
