Va Said They Looked At My Work History To Determine



VARO in determing my C&P % wrote in their decision to me that they also looked at my work history in increasing my diasability form 0% to 30%. I believe I qualify for 50%. They even acknowledged two letters by two different doctors stating that I am disabled and can only have a sit down job.

VA did not ask me how that has hampered my civilian employment. So how can they say they looked at my work history?

I don't believe they look at your work history when deciding increases.

They rate you according to the ratings schedule which is based on how it affects your ability to do a job.

The VA rating schedule goes by how the disability affects you ability to function physically. I have not seen any rating on the schedule that assigns a rating based on the requirement that someone work while sitting. If you find such a rating please post it.

I tried to get the VA to give me an extra schedular rating due to the requirement of a California Court decision that I could only do sedentary work for a service connected knee injury (10%) and the VA refused saying the rating schedule was adaquate in my case.

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
