OVERALL FROM 90% TO 92% ???

Question

I have a question and I hope to explain myself clearly enough. I just won an appeal for increase of PTSD from 50 to 70 with effective date of 2011. sounds like backpay.

 so I was 90% percent before. does that make me 92% overall? I am trying for 100% and need to reach 95 so that 20 % bump might help... or does it? the second part of the appeal was my back and my back was "remanded" and hoping that is 30% or more... towards 100%

 any feedback will be appreciated.

 thanks,

there is no 92%, there is only 90 or 100.

go to hadit.com and search for the ratings calculator at the top and add in your disabilities from high to low and see what you end up with, its a good tool.

I used the calculator and got 92.3455. I know I get paid for 90% but does the real math result in 92.3455?

Agree with USMC_VET. Input each of your ratings from highest to lowest:

so if I were to get 30 percent increase in another area with my now 20 percent increase in PTSD, will that get me to 95?

The results will add up to oddball numbers, but if you are 90-94 you get paid at 90% level, if you get 95-99 you get paid at 100% level.  Your combined ratings are always rounded to nearest X0%.

and the 92 doesnt matter for future ratings, etc. so i think where you are confused is that you are adding say (example) 50+30+10+10 (whatever it is) and get 92.34% and then taking 92% and inputting that in the calculator with 30% or whatever number to see if you will get 100%.

That is not correct. when combining ratings it is not what the previous combined rating was + new % it is always added individually.

So another example.

lets say you had 50,30,20 % and that added up to 92%, and then you got another 30

you would still be calculated on them individually at 50+30+30 +20.

your old combined doesnt matter when getting a new rating, they all get added together again and whatever that is rounded to nearest 10,20,30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100 is what it is.

thanks for the detail. Unfortunately, my back appeal is remanded and not completed at the same time as my PTSD. so I will need a new combination of 50/ 30+20 or another variation for 95 percent
