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!

I suggest you do the calculations manually if you do not trust the calculator(s).  Its not that bad.  Just a bit tedious.  

To combine 50 and 50, you take 50 percent of what is left, and you get 75%.  Then you take 30 percent of the remaining 25 percent.  That gets 7.5%.  Add those up, and keep going.  

Or, enter the information into the calculators, again, to check your work.  

Remember, part of the purpose of "VA math" is to confuse Veterans so they will give up rather than persue appeals.  

The calculators COULD be wrong, but, more likely, you entered the numbers wrong.  Take the numbers off your decisions, to see if you copied them down wrong.  It happens.

I would say all these rating combined would add up to

94.4434%  just under the 95%  so these ratings would be a combined rating at 90%

They seem to do it this way on purpose   if your at 90% rating  it makes it harder for the Veteran to reach the 100% scheduler.

I would look up each one of these rating   and read the rating criteria for each rating  make sure they are correct.

being at 90 % combined rating you will need an additional 50% rating or a combined 50% rating to reach the 100%

Remember if you can't work or make  the required threshold for income  due to these disability's (1400.400 file for IU.)
