Hello all, I have an initial claim under review by VA and also a claim under review with the BCMR. There were clear administrative errors that allowed me to be discharged without disability evaluation. Would I have more chance of success for a VA EED, earlier than initial application, if I pursue equitable tolling or should I just pursue equitable relief under 38 USC 503(a), or should I wait for the BCMR decision? My understanding of reading precedent is that tolling may not apply to VA effective dates prescribed by 5110. Would a BCMR ruling granting retroactive IDES processing effectively establish a VA effective date, or would that BCMR date only apply to the DoD disability effective date? Your insight is appreciated. Austin
