Received My Rating

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




Well, I finally received my rating of 80% (very happy)!!! However, my backpay doesn't add up, but my question is this. Will the disability pay show up on my RAS? If not, will I receive a separate monthly statement? Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

It will be explained on the award letter. there is no monthly statement.

Go ahead and change your disability percentage on your control panel.

If you think they made a math error write to them and show them on paper what you feel the error was.

They corrected a 5 figure error on one of my claims in 3 weeks when I sent them my calculations.It went to Finance to be fixed.

But it was only an addition and multiplication error. (It pays to check their math!)

But is your back pay problem involving the EED? If so ,as John said, the award letter will show how they determined that.

Upon request the VA will prepare an audit of payments but it was their audit,in my case, that was wrong.They had left out an entire year of DIC but reading the audit-it was quite difficult to see the error at first.

PS I am sure you did this but did you subtract from the retro, the total amount of any comp you received during the EED time frame?

QWas there any dependents changes in that time frame?

My accrued award always seemed wrong to me.

Three years at 100 % (new SC accrued for my husband) less same 3 years at 30 %SC .

Then again this was a widow's two years of accrued claim and I think they pick the cheapest 2 years instead of the 2 years immediately preceeding death.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.




    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    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
