There’s good news for vets looking to get financial assistance when buying a walk in tub.
A recent review by a Department of Defense Physical Disability Board of Review (PDBR) resulted in 61 percent of applicants having their status changed from a medical separation to retirement on the permanent disability list.
This review is open to eligible veterans of the DoD, Guard and Reserve and Coast Guard. Eligible veterans can request a PDBR by submitting a Department of Defense Form 294, which is available at http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/infomgt/forms/eforms/dd0294.pdf.
Veterans requesting a PDBR must mail their completed and signed DD Form 294 to SAF/MRBR, 550 C St. W., Suite 41, Randolph Air Force Base, TX 78150-4743.
Applicants may submit statements, briefs, medical records or affidavits supporting their application.
