Has been a twenty year rule.

My husband is 100% P&T (since 2004). Is there a time frame, say 15 years or so, when they stop reviewing your case?

Thanks!!

I have not been reviewed except when I asked for more since I was awarded 100% P&T in 1996. I don't think that you really need to worry yourself a lot about a VA review unless you request something more.

They are not supposed to do any more C&P exams once the claimant reaches age 55 or has had the illness/injury/disability for 5yrs or more w/o improvement and there is one more I can't currently think of. They can and sometimes do review claims and order new C&P exams under the pretense that "the Claimant may have worsened" but I believe that's just a ruse to try and lower the rating, thus saving the VA money. Other than that it's protected at 20yrs, unless fraud is/was involved.

It means the claimant is 100% service connected disabled and it is permanent and total in nature. It basically means the claimant should have no future C&P exams and carries w/it additional benefits for family members, such as Chap 35 education benefits and ChampVA insurance.

Sorry for bothering you with this but what is 100% P&T? I am new at learning all of the ancronyms. :D
