Increase In Rateing How To Request It?


mrstix

Question

Hi brothers and sisters.

I am going to request an increase in my rateing, at this time I am rated at 60% lower back and both legs 20% each, total overall rateing of 50%. Is there a fourm requesting an increase, or do I just write a letter

requesting it? My tricare PCM and my local VA clinic Doc both prescibe me with Rx's for med's for pain and imflamation. for my service connected injury. Thank you for your help in this matter.

To all of you vet's and your families happly holidays.

Just write a letter requesting an increase. Inlclude you claim number and SSA number. Send it certified mail/return receipt. If you are rated 60% and not working you could request TDIU if one disability is at least 40%.

Did I read that post correctly? 60%, plus 20%, plus 20% equals 50%?

pete - you don't miss much either. 60 20 20 = 50 is real bad even for va.

stix musta hit the wrong keys. at any rate something's fishy....

Sorry about that, Lower back 20%, right leg 20%, left leg 20%, total rateing 60%, combined=50%.

Thanks for your replys and catching my mistake. Better get my eye's check to ha ha. Thank's agin.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
       
    2. 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.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to 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.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    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
