Am 100% PTSD and filed for it to become P&T and no further exams as of Jan 2012.( mentally, just can't take anymore C&P exams)

Letter of decision is in the mail and should get it this week.

If P&T is awarded where do I go to find the benefits. I am 64 and have 2 minor children and a wife. Any kind of "retro"
benefits?



God Bless

John1, sound like your on the right track. If you are P&T and get your wife and kid's on ChampVA. Get all your medical and medicine co-pay to the date that the VA goes back for your service connection and file for refund to that date.

Good luck

Was 30% for two years and have been 100% for last three years. The application filed for P&T was Jan. 2012 (this year).

Are saying I can go back to the date I became 100%??

Be sure to check out all additional benefits you will be eligible for now
with a 100% P&T rating - both Federal and State level benefits.

When I got TDIU I was able to get the VA to reimburse me for dental work done while my claim was on appeal. This does not really apply to P&T status but when you hit total disability you can get dental from the VA and this can amount to many thousands of bucks.

Got the letter today but a little confused.

states "Basic eligibility to Dependents Education Assistance is granted as the evidence shows the veteran currently has a total service-connected disability, permanent in nature, effective January 20 2012.

Nothing is said about Champva or no future exams.

Are my dependents eligible for ChampVa benefits?
