That depends on what your rated for and what the ratings go up to?


10 % each knee (osteoarthritis)/10% left shoulder (osteoarthritis)/10 % left foot (heel spur)/ 10% left foot (ankle strain)/0 % dorsal spine spur/0 % lumbosacral strain.

If you feel that you have medical evidence that warrants a higher rating-by all means write to the VA and tell them you request an increase in your SC rating.

The Schedule of Ratings is here at hadit and at the VA web site-it will show the way they determine the percentages for disability.

Would a higher rating put you into any CRDP or CRSC criteria?

Listen to Berta...she has been down that trail before! Yes, we would recommend you ask for an increase..the sooner you ask, the earlier your effective date, the more money you get.

Write to the your regional office and/or visit your local Veterans Service Officer (DAV, VFW, etc) and ask him/her for help if you dont know how to do it.

If you are dissatisfied with the service of your Veterans Service Officer, then "fire" them and get another.

If they "deny" your increase, then file a Notice of Disagreement if you feel the that you are entitled to this increased rating.
