Payment Question


Fat

Question

ūüėē¬† Confused.....................

A veteran is 50% for PTSD.

The BVA awards 20% for a left foot condition for five years.

The new rating is 60%.

Does the veteran get 20% for the foot at five years or 10% for five years (difference between 60% and 50% percent)?

I would say ( jmo)  the 20% from the BVA Award

The BVA awards 20% for a left foot condition for five years.

The new rating is 60%.

I certainly could be wrong

other members please chime in.

No.  You get compensated the difference between your "old" rating and the new increase, for back pay.  

So, no, you dont get an additional 20 percent because VA hornswaggles you with VA math.  When you combine 50 percent and 20 percent, you get 60 percent, not  70 % like your 3 rd grade math teacher taught you.  

So, you get 60 percent minus the 50 percent you already received.  If you are single, this is how that works out:

1113.86 (60 percent for a single Vet)

minus

879.36 (50 percent for a single vet)

    Thats 234 per month.  Just for 2018.

To calculate your back pay, you have to do it over each year, using the previous years rate tables and deducting the amount received. 

Since the rates change every year we have a Cola, you have to repeat it each year to calculate your retro.
