Question

To be short and sweet i found out I am facing an MEB today. i am wondering what i might expect for benefits and how they work. Some ppl say you cant take va compensations if you get 30% MEB or more. others say i will have to pay back my separation pay if i take it ($90,000 maybe). and i really dont know how to judge what money i will make outside the Army. i have bad feet, ankles, knees, hip, back, left shoulder, ptsd, anger issues, migraines, sleep apnea, restles leg sleep disorder, depression. if all of these are 10-20% 140-280 %  what do i do?

I am very sorry no one replied yet to your question...did you mean your MEB was Tuesday, the day you posted?

http://www.pebforum.com/site/

This is a very good forum for PEB/MEB questions but we can handle many questions here too and have MEbers and PEBers as well

Were you able to get a PEBLO at your Mil installation?

All of the conditions you mentioned should be claimed.

Are there any Vet reps ( DAV, AL, VFW) on or near your base?

I will try to find more info on what you were told ....and post it here.

One thing to do...make sure you leave the Mil with a full copy of your STRs and even your personnel file if that too is available.Make sure your exit physical notes all of the above problems as well.

I assume ( but could be wrong-I am a civilian) that MEB/PEB AD get full out processing briefings like all other AD do.

My daughter (USAF) went to the VA one they did for the Navy because she had many briefings to get to and she said it was a fairly good overview of the basics and they had a vet rep there to answer questions.

If you can get to those briefings it would be great. Someone there  might be able to help you file the claim right away.

These links will answer the separation pay question:

http://www.wtc.army.mil/modules/soldier/s6-medicalBoards.html

You might be set for a PEB when the MEB is finished.

It is hard to determine how the ratings will go at this point but the VA, as I understand it, must follow the same rating that the Military gives you.

You can always appeal any VA rating that you think is too low.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
