Council of Review Boards (CORB)
Check Your Remaining Eligibility
If your discharge is still within 15 years from the final date of your discharge, you are eligible for a record review or document review (DR) and a personal appearance hearing review (HR). However, if you choose to have a HR first, you will no longer be eligible for a DR later. If you request a DR, you only are required to submit a copy of your records to NDRB for reviewing. If you request a HR held in Washington Navy Yard, DC, you must travel to the hearing location at no expense to the government.
 Please use the following guide to help identify your eligibility with NDRB.
