    I am a disabled vet since 2003 at 80%, applied for 100% and received letter from VA stating that they granted entitlement to 100% rate because I am unable to work due to service connected disablities with no exams in the future, does this quailify me and my spouse for aid & attendance

    If you require the assistance of others for your daily living, then you can apply for the adder of Aid and Attendance using VA form 21-4138 Statement in Support of Claim.

    You would simply state that you now require the assistance of others for your day-to-day living if that is the case. You would also need VA form 21-2680 Phy's Evaluation also stating that you are unable to mange your daily living without the assistance of others.

    Thank you for your service to our country.

    I don't know your personal circumstances, or if you require the assistance of others for your daily living, so cannot address this. Many vets are 100%, but are not at the point or stage where they are dependent upon others for every day living.

    Well your rating is still 80% and you're receiving pay at the 100% pay rate because you are in receipt of individual unemployability. You would need to apply to have your compensation rating increased to 100% and also for special monthly compensation indicating that your service-connected disabilities are so bad that you cannot live independently.

    Does PT and IU due to my service connected disabilites make a difference

    PT is only for pension, IU is for compensation. To be honest, you're kind of in the wrong forum.
