Physical Disability Board of Review (PDBR)
Veterans who received disability ratings of 20 percent or lower from their military medical boards are eligible for a review of their medical disability ratings. The PDBR was implemented to ensure the accuracy and fairness of combined disability ratings of 20% or less assigned to service members who were discharged between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2009. At the 30 percent threshold, veterans qualify for medical retirement, which carries lifetime retired pay, medical care and other benefits. The PDBR process is slow - applications take an average of 430 days to process - but it has resulted in ratings upgrades for nearly 50 percent of those who have applied
