HOW TO REQUEST A POST-FPEB HEARING
Before the new DOD1332.18 instruction was issued on November 10, 2022, service members could only submit written appeals of adverse findings by the FPEB panel of their service. But that is no longer the case. Under the provisions of Section 3.3d.1 of DODI1332.18, you can now request an additional hearing at which counsel can represent you. While no one knows yet how each service will implement this provision, this promises to be an excellent opportunity for service members to appeal an adverse FPEB decision to an entirely new panel. I will post any updates regarding the proposed post-FPEB hearing process as I obtain them.
