VA Math Currently at 90% What Does It Take To Get To 100%

Rate this question

Question

I need a little help with VA math, I'm trying to figure out what I need to get to 100%. I'm currently, I think 93%, rounded down and rated at 90%. Will the VA go off the 93% or will they go from the 90%?

So my question is, what % will I need to get in order to get to 100%.

I currently have a claim in for Cervical Spine with Radiculopathy, Dyspnea Shortness of Breath both secondary to Ankylosing Spondylitis and an increase for Eye Condition that's currenlty rated 0%. So I'm doing the what if scenario...

Here is how I'm currently rated for the 90%

50% MH

50% Ankylosing Spondylitis (Back)

30% Scars on Head

20% Right Shoulder (Bilateral)

20% Left Shoulder (Bilateral)

10% Right Hip (Bilateral)

10% Left Hip (Bilateral)

10% Tinnitus

0% Acne

0% Eye Condition

You actually are at 91.83% which of course rounds down to 90%. If you kept the same ratings for what you now have, if you receive a new 40% rating, it would get you to 95.101112 which rounds up to 100%. Not a 50%, but still not an easy step. Take care.

I was at 90% combined and had to get  70% to get the 100%  but I was 90%Combined with TDIU P&T 

but I got a separate rating for PTSD at 70% this also got me the SMC -S

My advise is keep on going for the 100% those little 10%'s ADD UP either for increase on what your rating now if they get worse or something new arises.   file for it.

Of course it would be good to get a 40% or 50% at once  but that usually means your (this new ) condition is pretty bad.

but every rating counts toward getting the 100%

You can get on Myhealthevet

and look at all the diagnose they have you diagnose for and see if any of those conditions you may have had while in the military  or also check on a secondary conditions that you may have and don't know it ?  the VA Dr's will not tell you  you have to be your own adjudicator as for as claims.

Va medical and VA claims are pretty much separate animals. VA medical stuff is in their system and claims is in their own. If something gets worse on the medical side, claims won't know it unless you tell them or at least point to it so it's easier and faster to find. Very frustrating to be told by a VA doc that they stay out of the disability process especially when they won't fill out an fce for SSDI for example. If they are the only treatment docs it makes filling for SSDI a lot harder. In my case I lost my case in part because of no fce.

Thanks for all the answers, I appreciate all the advice.

@GBArmy can you let me know how you got to 91.83%? I seem to confuse myself with doing the math especially with the bilateral ratings since I thought I was 93%.
