Appeal for Disability Ratings is now on process for Veterans

The wounded veterans can now apply for disability ratings from the Physical Disability Board of Review after waiting for a longer period of time. This article finds out why they have to wait for months for getting their appeals sanctioned, how the ratings for military service associates are provided and discusses similar other issues.

Finally the wounded veterans can now appeal for disability ratings, as the Physical Disability Board of Review (PCBR) is now receiving their applications. The board was formed by the Congress in the year 2007 in order to analyze the disability ratings of the injured veterans. But lots of discrepancies and difficulties cropped up while they were trying to understand the military rating systems. This caused the Board to make gradual postponements, for which the veterans have to wait for months in order to get their ratings. The Board was functionless for a year since its creation and then in the year 2008, the Defense Department officially proclaimed PCBR's reformation and function.

The Policy Administrator at New York-based Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, Vanessa Williamson, announced this year 2009 that the veterans waiting time to avail the disability ratings is finally over. But those veterans, who have vaguely claimed for getting ratings, will not be notified and entertained to avail this option. The Board is thus reviewing the conditions and appeals of every veterans and troops.

The Federal Office of Management and Budget has sanctioned the application of the Physical Disability Board of Review, just after the latter uploaded its application in the official portal of the Defense Department.

The disability rating for an injured soldier is provided depending on the gravity and enduring effect of a veteran's body damage. It the disability rating is over 30%, then it signifies that the service associate will receive a retiree payment every month through check and medical care services in the armed forces hospitals. But those associates who obtain disability ratings lesser than 30%, will receive divided payments per month, from which taxes will be deducted. However, the veterans will carry on receiving medical care, which will be offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs instead of the armed forces department. The family members of the veterans, who used to be under the coverage of the military healthcare policies, will not be able to obtain further medical care services from the government.

Lt. Colonel. Mike Parker, a retired military official, a supporter of the injured soldiers remarks that the postponement of the appeal for disability ratings is trivial when judged against other hurdles. This is because many times the veterans' disability is often not considered by the Military Department and so rating is neglected. Even the rating process of the Department of Veterans Affairs is not employed for rating the condition of an injured veteran.

However, the PCBR is now permitted to operate with the Defense Department to carry on rating the service associates and undertake actions accordingly.
