How do I know if my disability is permanent? I was medically discharged with 10 percent in 1979, VA rated me at 60 percent, was later dropped to 30 percent. About 5 years ago I applied for PTSD & was raised to 60 percent. My house burnt down a year ago and I lost my records, so l don't know what they say. Thanks for your help.
If your rating is less than 100% and not associated with a recovery benefit from a treatment, it's likely permanent. VA doesn't usually schedule future exams for conditions less than 100%. You can recover your records here https://www.archives.gov/st-louis
