As a military service member, if you suffer an injury or an illness while on active duty you are entitled to a hearing to determine whether you can continue to serve in the military; and if not, whether you are entitled to medical and other benefits. After a review of your medical records, a service member receives an initial evaluation stating the disability level and benefits the service member is entitled to receive.
Each service has a Physical Evaluation Board (or PEB) where service members may appeal the record review or initial disability rating. You are entitled to an attorney and to present any evidence to support your disability case. At McMillan Metro, our attorneys have represented service members from all military services at PEB hearings for 30 years and we can give your case the time and attention it requires.
