    i just filed for disability for a back injury and sleep apnea yesterday. how long did it take from the time you filed your paperwork to the time you got your first check? the guy in charge of mine said 6-8 months :ugh:. they told my buddy who has basically the EXACT same back injury the same timeframe but he got his in like 3 months. what were your experiences?

    Nope, bad to the bone

    I think Ranger-AO might. He was saying something a while ago about an old knife injury

    so fuckin long. this should already have been taken care of but they totally fucked me when i got out. my med board took 9 months and instead of shipping it to AFPC in texas it sat on some faggot SSgt's desk so come my normal sep date i had to take a good paying job instead of WAITING another 3-6 months for my package to be reaccomplished. bye bye $15k+ :mad:
