This transmittal amends Hearings, Appeals and Litigation Law (HALLEX) manual section I-3-1-51 to incorporate instructions regarding expedited processing of claims for claimants who have received a 100 percent permanent and total disability compensation rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs. To incorporate the new instructions, we made minor formatting changes.
