Need help with 100% P&T. Rating table shows only 93%


USN806

Question

Used these forums a lot for research and I appreciate everyone's inputs that I have used in my own situation.. Down to the point

I recently had a decision from the VA granting 50% for PTSD. My complete percentage list looks like this 50(Plantar fasciitus), 50(PTSD), 30(Sleep Apnea), 20(shoulder/right), 20(shoulder/right), 20(back), 10(tinnitus), 10(hip). Following the combined rating table I get to 93. Waiting on my decision letter to get to the house, I received a retro payment of 1300-ish. I check ebenefits and it shows me at 100% P&T. Anyone have experience with this? Why is it 100%? Does this mean I can't work? Never applied for or mentioned anything about failing to hold down a job

If you have separate ratings for your shoulders than the bi-lateral factor is coming into play and that could take you past the 95% threshold

USN806, I figured your rating on a bilateral calculator and find you at 100% due to the two shoulder injuries.  I am under the same due to bilateral of the legs and arms.  Yes you can still work since you are not TDIU.  I have never figured out how that works that you are totally disabled but can work but that is a decision made by people who are supposed to be smarter than me.

Vetquest, there are quite a few 100% veterans working at regional offices and other government agencies.  Working in an atmosphere where there is very low physical efforts and I would say moderate stress is very possible.
