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 filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
