How To Tell If Your VA Rating Is 100% Permanent And Total

You can learn a lot about the VA rating you’ve received by carefully reviewing the VA Rating Decision letter. Check the letter to see if you have any future examinations, read the VA explanation of the determination it has made on your case, and be sure to double-check the letter for a section featuring a check box indicating that your VA rating is “Permanent and Total.” Call the VA directly at 1-800-827-1000 if you have trouble understanding the VA award letter.
