Are You 100% P&T? Or A Different 100%

It is important to know the difference between VA Disability Ratings because they are not all created equal. 100% TUD VA Disability Rating is something that we never deal with, as it requires a ton of additional paperwork, it is very messy, and you have to specially request from VA - VA will never automatically rate you TUD. However, there are also 100% P&T VA Disability Ratings which are what we strive for because they lock you in at 100%, so the VA cannot change your rating down the road, and it unlocks a lot of additional benefits.

According to VA policy, a disability is considered "permanent" when it is reasonably certain, based on medical evidence, that the level of impairment will continue for the remainder of the veteran's life. As a result, the VA is permitted to consider a veteran's age when assessing whether a condition is permanent; as a result, it may be more difficult for younger veterans to be determined permanently incapacitated.

Those who have been given VA benefits for permanent and total disability are safeguarded from the potential of having their payments reduced. As long as the veteran's rating was awarded as Permanent and Total, he or she will continue to be eligible for the benefits associated with that rating for the remainder of their lives.

We hope this helps answer some of the questions you may have had regarding this topic, and as always, let us know how we can help!
