I was placed on TDRL from the Navy in November of 2006. I was rated 30% by the military and 60% by the VA. I was on TDRL for the first 5 years and then it suddenly stopped and my Tricare cut out too. I never got a phone call or any mail to tell me to schedule an appointment for the 18mo intervals to be re examined. I've called the PDRL office in Tennessee a couple times, talked to someone named Pam, they took my info and was supposed to schedule me. That was 3 to 4 yrs ago. Nothing happened. I do have extreme anxiety and it's really hard to talk to these people and try to do this myself. So I'm reaching out to you all here. Who do I call to get this taken care of? I need to get this over with so I can get back on Tricare and get my family covered. My disability rating from the VA hasn't changed and I just need info on what to do, if anything. I live in Sacramento, CA. Not sure if that is important or not, but just in case.

Thanks,
Chad Mitchell

I would contact PERS-82 at 1.866.827.5672. You might also contact the San Diego Veterans Legal Clinic, Veterans Legal Institute, University of California Irvine Veterans Legal Clinic, or NVLSP.org.

Was your TDRL placement based off of a mental disability?
