    Do all the remedials come at once or can they be requested over the weeks and months ahead? Example: can one receive a remedial for hearing in July, and then in December be requested to have a remedial for color blindness?
    Another way of asking: Will the applicant be made aware of all remedials requested by Dodmerb right away, or can one expect remedials to trickle in over time?

    Again, it doesn't matter what everyone else gets, it matters what you get. Cut and paste your posting; provide your full name and last 4 SSN; and send to me at Larry.Mullen@dodmerb.tma.osd.mil. I can assist YOU better from there:thumb:

    The general answer to the question though is yes, for most of the folks, the remedials are all sent at one time. 2 reasons why that might be different:

    1) We try and do the least hassle remedial first (e.g. a questionnaire, if appropriate). This allows us to reduce the hassle to an applicant; obtain the info we need to render a determination; and conserve resources---the applicant's and the governments. Sometimes, we need to do a more comprehensive follow-up after evealutaing the first remedial.

    2) Sometimes applicants don't provide us the complete information the first time. It might be on a totally different issue that we didn't requeste a remedial on at first. But, in evaluating another remedial, it uncovers information that requires our follow-up.

    You answered my question; I wasn't inquiring about any thing specific, just in general. Thanks!
