Physical and Medical Evaluation Board
Physical and Medical Evaluation Boards
Any service member who bears a disability which renders them unsuitable or unable to perform their duties is subject to appearance before their services Physical Evaluation Board. The Physical Evaluation Board (PEB) works together in conjunction with the Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) in determining whether or not a service member’s medical condition is cause for separation or retirement from the military.
First the MEB will determine whether you have a medical condition that renders you unable to complete your military service. If so, then your case will then be referred to a PEB where a formal determination will be made regarding your disability and your actual physical fitness to return to duty. The decision of this board may be to impose limitations on assignments, issue a temporary disability status, separate you from active duty, or issue a Medical Retirement.
