As mentioned earlier, it's 60% (actually, 57% rounded to 60%).

However, here is a thought for future reference, if you get above a combined 70% .... under 38 CFR 4.16(a)(2) http://www.benefits....PART4/S4_16.DOC , the 30% for PTSD and the 30% for ulcerative colitis might qualify as that magic single 40% (or more) because they both are Disabilities resulting from common etiology or a single accident. It may or may not fly.

Check the What We Decided page that came with the award. They may have a combined rating on

the second or third page just under current award. JVet may be onto something, but I haven't had to try that. My 3rd award

came with a combined rating (80%) under What We Decided. 60% should be the correct combined

rating.

I had 40% and new award 60% IHD, and 80% total under What We Decided, second white page.

Congrats on your award, you earned it. Thank you for your service.

Read and heed the knowledgeable advice here on Hadit.

Have your claim complete with medical evidence, and you will succeed.

It's your claim and ultimately, your responsibility. And, never give up.

they take the worse of the 2 and average it I'm not sure what you mean here. There is no averaging done by the Combined Ratings Table, 38 CFR 4.25.
