I contacted my medical POC SM, and I got her voicemail. I just need to know if I passed the MMPI, but so far no answer from her.
I contacted my Security POC VS, and she told me "i'm still being processed and I will receive and update when i'm done being processed."

Edit: Got a call from Security POC and I've been granted a conditional security clearance! So whoever came on here and said "the squeaky wheel gets the grease", you were absolutely correct. Keep calling until you get answers.
How do you know your medical POC?

Serious question for those who are already employed, were you able to transfer your 401k from your previous job into the thrift savings plan? Is there a limit on how much you can transfer?

I’ve already called my current, and they told me no. Though I’m not employed yet. It’s things that I’ve already considered. I’ll probably cash out and manually transfer the money.

Yeah, I just don't want to pay the penalty for cashing out (I think it's 10% penalty fee). But hey I hear the pension/savings plan is nice in the FAA :)

I just got in contact with the financial institution that manages the 401k for the job I just left. I told them I'd be going to a government gig and wanted to rollover into the TSP, they said no problem, my new employer would give me transfer paperwork and a letter of acceptance. So I assume you should be able to do it.

That’s an Enroute date.
When do you select location assignment? after basic enroute or initial enroute? If you satisfactory completed basic enroute, do you right away go to initial enroute? or do you report to your location assignment, hang out until there is school opening? So many question...

You pick your location on the last day of class. You really need to read the FAQs section above as there is a LOT of information that you would be interested in and where all of this is explained.

I looked at my CIL. Is medical POC the MMPI POC or on the ATC examiner list? I only see the generic medical email on the medical portion of CIL.
Medical POC would be your contact for your MMPI results. Your MMPI is reviewed alongside your physical exam by a flight surgeon. Once the flight surgeon gives you the all clear, he sends this to your medical POC, and they send your clearance to your HR POC.

Has anyone with RC as their medical POC been OFFICIALLY notified of their tier 2 yet? The email he sent me was “your tier 2 has to be coordinated and that will take a long time.” I’m wondering if that means he’s sent the file to DC yet. It also took him 3.5 months to tell me was I tier 2 so my faith in him working fast is very low

RC is a good guy. They are just overwhelmed with cases. Keep emailing, he will get back to you.

Same here. I haven’t gotten an official tier 2 notification and I only found out because after a month of me completing my medical/mmpi I reached out for an update and was sent an email within an hour of RC telling me I did not pass the mmpi and need a tier 2 evaluation. After another month after that email was received I send out another request for an update and was told my tier 2 package was just prepared for DC for review and to be patient. I understand they are severely backed up but am I supposed to wait for a response or constantly reach out for an update? It seems reaching out will give you a “be patient” email fairly quick.

Glad you finally got your security clearance taken care of. It took forever for me to hear anything about mine as well. I finally got my FOL on Friday. Class date is June 11. I never heard anything from medical so I feel like if you haven’t yet you should be okay on the MMPI.
