  11. P&T (Permanent & Total) Status • You can be 100% IU (Individual Unemployability or TDIU) with or without P&T status • You can be 100% schedular with or without P&T status. • You must be either 100% schedular or 100% IU to be P&T. That is what the 'T' is for (Total) • P&T=Permanent & Total which gives you no future reviews (unless you request one by filing a new compensation claim or filing for an increase) and more benefits for dependents including dependent education assistance (Chapter 35) and if not Tricare eligible, healthcare through CHAMPVA.
