Figuring Out The %


JohnM

Question

This is off the top of my head> I'm trying to understand how the percentage actuall works

If some one could figure my example out for me

PTDD=50% of 100% = 50%

DMLL= 30% of 50% = 35%

PN= 30% of 35% =24.5 %

HL= 10% of 24.5% =22.05%

Tinnitus=10& of 22.05% =19.845 %

So would I add 50+35+24.5+22.05+19.845 together to get a precentage rate or would you add 50,30,30,10,10 together

The 19.845 would mean that is whats left of your body precentage wise

« » Start point 0 100

50% SC Condition #1 50 100 50.000000 50

30% SC Condition #2 30 15 35.000 65

30% SC Condition #3 30 10.5 24.500 75.5

10% SC Condition #4 10 2.45 22.050 77.95

10% SC Condition #5 10 2.205 19.845 80.155

ie: sc #1 50% from 100% = 50%

sc #2 30% from 15% = 65%

sc#3 30% from 10.5% = 75.5%

sc#4 10% from 2.45% = 77.95%

sc#5 10% from 2.205% = 80.55% for a combined rating of 80%

use the attached excel chart

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe your rating should be 80%.

The first (2) 50-30 = 65

Next add the 30% = 76

Next add the 10% = 78

Next add the 10% = 80

Each 10% you receive it will increase.

Hope this helps.

I will agree with those who said the overall rating is 80%, IF THERE ARE NO BILATERAL ratings.

However, none of the individual calculations are correct, after the first two values. I guess everybody must have gone to school after New Math was introduced.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
