Can you be rated more than 100% disabled and if so are you paid more?

It depends on your disabilities.

If you have multiple disabilities then it is difficult to get a higher evaluation.

If you have a serious disability that is rated at 100 percent and have others totaling 60 percent or housebound should receive SMC S.

There are other scenarios that also come into play.

I noticed you are 170% so you get more than 100% pay. If I remember right aren`t you a PTSD vet?

SMC = Special Monthly Compensation

They are paid either in addition to (SMC K), or in place of regular ratings (all others). There are several different levels of SMC, and several different combinations of them as well. The most common are Housebound and Aid and Attendance, both typically paid at the rate of SMC L. Higher levels of Aid and Attendance are allowed, depending on the amount of care needed by the vet. They are typically paid at the rate of either SMC R1, or R2. If you are rated at 100% for a single disability, and have another single disability that is ratable at 50%, or 100%, then you are entitled to the next higher rate of SMC. This is in addition to the addtional 60% (single or combined) disabilities that jbasser spoke of. SMC is a complicated beast that is very hard to understand. If you want to learn more about it, it is governed by 38 USC 1114, and regulated by 38 CFR 3.350
