Needs and Uses: The Fiscal Year 2008 National Defense Authorization Act amended Title 10, United States Code by adding Section 1554a. That provision of law directs the Secretary of Defense to establish a board of review to review the disability determinations of individuals who were separated from the armed forces during the period beginning on September 11, 2001 and ending on December 31, 2009 due to unfitness for duty due to a medical condition with a disability rating of 20 percent disabled or less; and were found to be not eligible for retirement. On June 27, 2008, The Department of Defense published DODI 6040.44, which provides the guidance for this process.
The DD Form 294, “Application for Review by the Physical Disability Board of Review (PDBR) of the Rating Awarded Accompanying a Medical Separation from the Armed Forces of the United States” is designed to appropriately collect the information necessary to retrieve the medical separation and the Department of Veterans Affairs records and correct military personnel and pay records.
