Resubmit Your Disability Claim

Posted by on July 6, 2015 in News
The PDBR or physical disability review board was created a few years ago after it was discovered that the veterans affairs and DOD medical and physical review boards for medically discharged soldiers were not in sync.
As a result, the DOD now provides an easy way for soldiers that were medically boarded between 9/11/2001 and 12/31/2000 with a rating of 20% or less to RESUBMIT their records to be reviewed for accuracy and possibly be retired as a result of the boards new findings.
The initial application is easy to fill out and sent to the review board. Once the review board determines a soldier should have been medically retired, they send their finding to the respective service for final review and approval. The entire process takes 18-24 months.
Once it is determined the soldier is eligible for  medical retirement, their final rating and benefit eligibility is sent in a letter to soldier.
The soldier receives orders a few weeks after and can to and get their ID card and start receiving any benefits as per their eligibility.
I highly recommend you utilize a service organization to help you with the application process.

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a HirePatriots.com website for their location. Find more information about our military programs at PatrioticHearts.org. And please make a contribution of any kind. Thank you.
