Should veterans place the percentage desire as part of the initial claim or let the VA decide?


Should veterans place the percentage desired as part of an initial claim or let the VA decide? Does specifying the claim to a percentage completey deny the claim if the criteria for the percentage request is not deemed a match? Even if it matches at a lower percentage? Just curious to know if there is any success with that approach?

JF, as is sometimes the case, it seems some of us missed the part of your original question, "Initial Claim."

Unless the VA SC Claim (paper or E-File) has changed, there really isn't a section for you to ask for a specific SC % Rating. If in your opinion, your Medical Evidence is somewhat vague or less than strongly supportive, completing a VA 21-???? "Statement in Support of Claim" may be beneficial.
