How to Prove Your Veterans’ Disability Compensation Rating Should Be Higher
These are the keys to convincing the VA that you deserve a higher disability rating—and the higher level of disability compensation that comes with it:
- Medical evidence showing the severity of your condition
- A record of active treatment for your ailments
- Evidence that your health problems were connected to your service
An experienced veterans’ benefits lawyer can take care of gathering the medical records you need, and filing the appeals you need, to get the level of benefits you deserve.
A 100 percent disability rating can qualify you for more than $3,000 in monthly income.
Sometimes, you can also qualify for a higher rate of disability compensation even without a 100 percent disability rating if your service-connected disability leaves you unable to work.
In that case, you could qualify for Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) status.
The VA rating system is confusing, using a complicated formula instead of simple addition to combine all of your medical problems into one rating.
You’ve got other things to do besides trying to solve this puzzle.
