Disability Process Streamlined

The recently updated Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES) Directive-Type Memorandum (DTM) includes several major changes to streamline the process for wounded warriors. The Department of Defense uses IDES to determine a Servicemember's fitness for duty. If the Servicemember is found medically unfit for duty by DoD, then they are informed of the proposed VA disability rating before they leave the service so they know the approximate amount of compensation and benefits they will receive from the VA. For more information on the recent updates, read the Warrior Care Blog.
