Yes I used a VA rating calculator but not the one provided by Hadit. It came with a "73" figure. I haven't received my rating letter yet, I got the ratings from the Ebenefits website. Like you said, maybe the rating letter will be more descriptive and show the missing numbers. I appreciate your help thus far !
Deferred is way better than a Denial.
I don't think the MST/PTSD was deferred because of the need for a Bladder Trauma C & P, just saying, I think it's more likely the PTSD Rating needed further Development.
Stay Strong, SC @ 30% is a good start. Did you receive an actual VA Award/Denial letter or is the Award info from your E-Ben site?
Ray, just ran your SC numbers from what you indicated above, 4 @ 20% each an 4 @ 10% each. VA Math gives you a 73.126, rounded down to 70% Combined SC Rating.
If you got an 80% Rating Letter, you have to of missed something or a couple of your SC's, EX hands or feet etc, got a Bilateral Award that your not aware of. You needed less than 1.74 to get to 75 rounded to 80% SC.
Let's talk about where to go from here.
