Ratings Table From 1982


SueEdel

Question

I am trying to figure out exactly what my rating was in 1980 through 1982. At the time I was in a dispute with the VA over a rating. In 1982 I received a letter that stated:

Monthly Amount Beginning Date

$321.00 01/03/1980

$327.00 10/01/1980

$413.00 10/01/1981

$443.00 10/01/1982

When I go to the VA page and try to get to rating tables I can not get beyond 1999 - even when I click "prior".

There is nothing on the letter which states the actual rating. It would be as a single, unmarried veteran. I am trying to determine if it was @ 30% or 50% or 60%. Did the percentage change over the dates or was this the time period when they raised the rates beyond a COLAincrease. I know this is 30 years ago....can you assist?

It appears that my rating increased on one issue from 30 to 50. The issue with my back injury stayed at 10%. So it was at 40% combined and went to 60% combined but on which date listed above? Without rating table it is difficult to tell.

I believe it's easy to tell. On 10/01/1981 it jumped $86 dollars, which would have been much larger than a COLA raise, around 26%. You'll also note back then they gave raises at the beginning of the fiscal yr, October first, rather than like they do now, December first. Must have been some cost savings measure, that screwed the vet, once again!!! Also note that the 10/01/1982 raise was a little over 7% which was fairly substantial. jmo

Thank you! Thank you! I wanted to use a reference statement written for me by a VA counseling psycholigist when I was employed as his work study student in 1980-1980. I had a claim back then but knew that I had succeeded. I wanted to use this glowing reference statement to show that even though I was 50% and 10%= 60% combined I was still a very productive member of society. Excellent grades, recommends me for employment, etc.

I thought this might be similar to the buddy letter concept. It is a snipet in time. 30 years later as medical problems have escalated- I can show the difference.

Just wanted to be sure I was actually at 50 since I am going for 70.

Good job for a vet in need of an answer!!

  • 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.

    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
