What is the Medical Evaluation Board (MEB)?

The MEB is an informal board comprised of at least two physicians who evaluate the Soldier’s medical history, condition, and extent of injury or illness, and recommends whether or not the Soldier’s medical condition will impede his/her ability to continue serving in full duty capacity in his/her office, grade or rank.

What is the Physical Evaluation Board (PEB)?

If the MEB finds the Soldier unfit to return to duty in his/her MOS, the Soldier is referred to the PEB. The informal PEB evaluates the Soldier’s medical information, MOS, and other factors to determine the Soldier’s:
Fitness to continue military service
Eligibility for disability compensation
Disability codes and percentage rating (ranging from zero to 100 percent)
Case disposition
Whether or not the injury or illness is combat-related

What is the Benefits Delivery (BDD) at Discharge Program?

The Department of Veterans Affairs Benefits Delivery at Discharge program allows Service members to submit a claim for disability compensation between 180 to 90 days prior to separation, retirement, or release from active duty or demobilization.
