hello all,

I will break this down and make it as easy and quick and hopefully someone can help answer my question.

June 2019 med boarded out the army 70% DOD/ 90% VA(not P&T)

January 2020 VA increase to 100%

OCT 2020 had a tele conference for a PTSD re evaluation. Results came back and keeping me at 50 PTSD. In the letter in says dependents eligible for chapter 35 education assistance aid and that I am total service-connected disabilities, permanent in nature.

These two things are new and never seen and my ebenitfits VA letter says yes to total and permanent now.

So my question is will the DOD use this to decide to make me pdrl? Or will they send out a letter and have me go to another separate appointment for them? How did others get notified that they have gone from TDRL to PDRL?

Thank you all for the help.

I went on TDRL in 2016 with 50% DOD / 90% VA. I was reevaluated after one year and the exam for my main disability (mental health) was conducted at a VA hospital. After about two months, I got a letter from VA increasing my main disability from 50% to 70% and making me 100% VA. One month later, I received a letter from DOD informing me that I had been moved from TDRL to PDRL with a 70% DOD rating. I did not have a separate appointment for DOD.

Thank you swiper, for your reply.

I figure i will get a letter in the coming months from the DOD since the VA has made me permanent and my PTSD re evaluation has me the same.
