Subject: Workup of Case by Analyst
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.
This transmittal revises I-3-1-51 A by adding a new sub-subsection 2 titled “Veteran 100 Percent Permanent and Total (VPAT).” We included appropriate instruction and reference information regarding these cases. Due to inclusion of this information, we also renumbered all following sub-subsections and made language changes for consistency with our policy and other instruction.
