I crunched the numbers and looks like I should be 50% for hearing loss plus my ten percent for tinutus.

Va math is 55 that rounds up to a 60% rating

This has been a ten year battle and it looks like I may finally be rated fairly

2004...medically discharged due to hearing loss. Va gives a 0% RATING for hearing loss

2008...VA GIVES 20% RATING for hearing loss

2009...VA GIVES 10% RATING FOR TINITUS..

2011... Va gives 30% rating for hearing loss

2014...looks to be 50% for hearing loss unless Ive done the math wrong

I am rated for tinnitus only, but wonder if the math appears wrong because the VA might consider hearing loss and tinnitus as pyramiding. If it is not clear in your award letters, you might consider calling the 1-800 number and casually ask if they can just verify your individual service connection conditions, rating percentages, and your combined rating.

Hopefully someone else here with more experience on those conditions can help more than me.
