VA Disability Calculator Wrong?


Marines1999

Question

Hi, I'm confused. My wife just got an increase in one of her disabilities today which brought her disabilities to what you see below. But I'm getting contradictory results from calculators. People like these websites say she should move to 100% (https://cck-law.com/va-disability-calculator/, and https://www.hillandponton.com/va-disability-calculator/) but these links show she'd be at 94.44% which would keep at 90% (https://www.hadit.com/disability-calculator/, and http://www.vvaarizona.org/combined_disability.php)

Does anyone know if she'll be rated at 90% or 100%? The websites are contradicting. Thanks!

Without looking at the underlying algorithms used with each site's calcuator, it is difficult to saw which one is correct, but the hadit.com calculator is a good measure of a rating estimating. A couple of the sites I have seen contain the capability to factor in bilateral disabilities, which consist of additional math above and beyond the typical algorithm.

Are any of the ratings "bilateral", meaning they affect paired extremities? If they do, it could be a key factor.

You could do it manually with the instructions at: https://www.benefits.va.gov/compensation/rates-index.asp#combined

You could also login to ebenefits and check there to see if the VA has officially entered it into the computer. You could also call 
peggy" at 1-800-827-1000 and see what they say, but you could get different answers from different representatives.

If it does end up that she is at 94.4%, that would indeed round down to 90%. However, at that rating, any rating increase or even a new single 10% rating should place her over the math threshold and round up to 100%.

Good luck! I hope it works out for you guys.

I can do it on  here stubby pencil which is 100% accurate, but would have to know the disabilities, not just the percentage.  And left or right if appendages...

It's really simple.

You need to be carefull with the calculators when you make changes, sometimes it don't take.  Better to leave the page and come back and start over.

I had a similar deal before my last round of claims.  I had a left foot 0% and a right foot 10%, which by reg is not a bilateral.  Has to be a ratable disability.  Believe it or not, if the 10% was bilateral, I would have been 90, but wasn't, therefore I was 80%.  I fixed that with a new claim for an increase....

FWIW,
