What proof is needed to establish the fact that a person is permanently and totally disabled?

Certification is required from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Railroad Retirement Board, or the Social Security Administration. If an applicant is not eligible for certification by any of these agencies, there must be sworn affidavits provided by two medical doctors licensed to practice medicine in Virginia. One of these affidavits must be based upon a physical examination. The Medical Affidavit is a form that must be obtained from the Commissioner of the Revenue's office or the website.
