With the three new separate 10% increases your total disability rating goes from 90% to 93%.

usually 3 =10%ratings would be 27.1% rounded off at 30% so if you have a 90% rating you would need an additional 30%  or 50% to make it to 100%  after initial rating of combined 90%.

its very hard to reach the 100%

a separate  rating of a single  s.c. disability of 50% plus your 90%combined  would round out to 95%  to = 100%

Really it all depends on your raw score.  You say you are 90, but are you actually 90?  Anything from 85 to 94 could be a 90.

So, if you have a raw score of 85-92 the plus 30 would get you only up to 94, which would be rounded down to 90.

If your raw score is 93, then a 30 will get you 100.

And if your raw score is 94, then all you really need is a 10.

Would need to know all of your disabilities you currently have to see what your raw score is before VA math.

FWIW,

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
