When a Veteran starts considering whether or not to file a VA Disability Claim, there are a lot of questions that he or she tends to ask. Over the last 10 years, the following are the 14 most common basic questions I am asked about when it comes to filing Veterans Affairs Disability Claims.

Increased to 60%

Recommended Posts

I was previously rated at 50%(40% post phlebetic syndrome, 10% femur fracture, 0% eczema).

I filed for an increase on the post phlebetic syndrome and to reopen claim for arthritis in both knees 3/1/17.

I had a comp and pension exam 6/10/17 and again 11/27/17.

My claim was decided 1/10/18.  AB8 letter shows the service connected both knees at 10% so I am now rated at 40% post phlebetic syndrome, right knee arthritis 10%, left knee arthritis 10%, femur fracture 10%, and eczema 0%.

Waiting on the big brown envelope.

Congratulations!

Keep in mind that you can also file for secondary disabilities, if you end up with any, such as the side effects of medication used to treat your SC disabilities.
