I was just on ebenefits and I saw that my disability percentage went up. Now I do have an appeal going, but that shows no progress. My list of disabilities are
50, 30, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 10 According to my math that still equals 8x%, Do they routinely up your percentage on there without adding the new disability to the list? I did see an error where the 50 was rated at 40, so I contacted my VSO and forwarded the decision (thank god I keep copies) and that has been corrected. But that doesn't equate to 90. Help!
Call Peggy. Peggy should be able to let you know how it happened, or if its a glitch on EBenefits.
Peggy is unreliable as much as ebennies. :D
Send a message through IRIS system they give you an answer usually the next day they say 5 but if it's an easy fix it's answered shortly
I ended up going to a buddy of mine who works for a VSO. He called and got it figured out. It is 90%, my headaches came back at 50%. Drives me nuts, that I was already 80% and another 50% only raises it 10%.
Most people who try to get from 90 to 100 percent usually accomplish that with TDIU. It takes another 50 percent to go from 90 percent to 100 percent. Try explaining that to your 6 th grade math teacher.
The VA math is an ingenious plan, originally devised by insurance companies and copied by VA, to reduce their compensation paid out to claimaints, called the "whole man" theory. VA always adopts anything that results in lowered compensation for you and I or other Vets.
