15. Auth: 10 USC chap 61 Only unfitting conditions rated Ratings are permanent upon PDRL or separation Not bound by DVA rating decisions Auth: 38 CFR Service connected injuries/illness rated Ratings may change over time Not bound by military decisions THESE ARE THE OTHER PRIMARY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO SYSTEMS FOR RATING DISABILITIES. I BRING THESE TO YOUR ATTENTION SO YOU CAN BETTER APPRECIATE WHAT WE MEAN WHEN WE SAY THAT A SERVICE MEMBER CAN GO OUT TO THE VA AFTER SEPARATION OR RETIREMENT AND GET A COMPLETELY NEW, AND SOMETIMES INCREASED, DISABILITY RATING UNDER THE DVA SYSTEM. I CANNOT OVEREMPHASIZE THE FACT THAT A MEMBER DOES NOT REQUIRE AN UNFIT FINDING FROM THE PEB TO BE ELEGIBLE FOR VA BENEFITS.

16. DOD vs DVA System THE PRIMARY DIFFERENCE IS THE BASIS FOR WHICH COMPENSATION IS GRANTED: LOSS OF FUTURE MILITARY EARNINGS (RETIREMENT) VERSUS THE LOSS OF FUTURE CIVILIAN EARNING CAPACITY. ALTHOUGH THE PEB PHYSICIANS UTILIZE THE VASRD AS GUIDANCE, THEY ARE EVALUATING CONDITIONS WHICH ARE POTENTIALLY DISABILITIES USING A DIFFERENT FRAME OF REFERENCE THAN THEIR VA COUNTERPARTS.THE PRIMARY DIFFERENCE IS THE BASIS FOR WHICH COMPENSATION IS GRANTED: LOSS OF FUTURE MILITARY EARNINGS (RETIREMENT) VERSUS THE LOSS OF FUTURE CIVILIAN EARNING CAPACITY.
