More About the Montgomery Regional Office

Working with the U.S. Department of Defense on Integrated Disability Evaluation System

The Montgomery RO is actively engaged in the Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES), a joint program with the Department of Defense (DOD) to improve the disability rating process. The program aims to create a single disability exam conducted to VA standards and used by both VA and DOD, develop a single disability rating completed by VA that is binding on both departments, and provide payments of VA benefits within 30 days of a Servicemember’s separation from service.  The Montgomery RO also provides VR&E services at the earliest opportunity for Servicemembers. Our RO operates three IDES programs in Alabama—Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Fort Rucker in Daleville, and Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville. It also operates IDES VR&E programs in the Florida Panhandle, the Pensacola Naval Station, and Hulburt AFB.
