question about rating accuracy


Hello I believe my rating 100 P&T was to high. When I had my exam I explained I believed the medication I was on was making me worse this was three months ago. I got a new psychatrist and he also believes I was on the wrong medication. 


I truly believe P&T was too high. I rather be rated 100 percent and be reviewed in the future. Is this possible? Would I call or fill out a form?


Please just help me with my question I will make my own decision so I do not want to here that this would be a mistake. I truly feel I was over rated and I do not want the P&T I am only inn my twenties I want to try and get better. 


I am not looking for opinions if its the right choice. if there is someone out there that can let me know if it is possible and how to do this please let me know. 


Thank you

Normally  Speaking,

''Once a 100% rating is given the status of Permanent & Total, it cannot be changed in the future. The VA does not require regular re-examinations of Permanent & Total Ratings, and the veteran can expect to receive full benefits of a Total Rating for the remainder of their life.''

So if you do not want the P&T Status & the extra benefit package that comes with the P&T Rating.

The only thing I know to tell you is write to your  VA Regional Office  and request they reduce or take off your P&T Rating Status  and  explain to them why you want this reduced or taken off your rating.

your welcome

Please think about this before you make this request, the extra benefits are wonderful if your married your spouse can go back to school and get that extra degree  or a degree that will certainly help out in the future.

And the medical for your family via champ VA

of course this is totally your choice.

Unfortunately there is no required form to make this type of request  that I know of.

Just type it out in a appropriate manner  siting your reason for this request  sign it put your claim #on it your return address and send it in with a certified return receipt  just as you would when filing a claim.

You need to slow down and do some serious thinking before making that decision.

Disability is a tricky matter especially when it comes to mental health, and physical health.

Health can be like one step forward, then suddenly it can go two steps back on some conditions that are unstable.

Flare ups are common, and many conditions are chronic, and some conditions progressively worsen with age.

I wish you the best on whatever decision you make.

      I've seen on a couple of websites where it stated that your VA rating percentage is protected and they cannot reduce your rating once you reach 55 years old.  Is this true?  If so, where can I find this in the VA regulations for verification?  
      Thank you to all who reply.

      I tried looking through forums, but cannot find this answer.
      I had a GERD claim increase on Jan. 2019. I am *fairly* certain it was previously rated at 0% upon discharge and then finally received an increase in Jan. 2019. I cannot find anywhere online when the GERD was previously rated for 0%-I looked through "historical claims/appeals" and it does not show anywhere on there (there is one claim that I submitted a long time ago that says "administrative review-closed, but, it was so long ago, I honestly do not remember what the administrative review was for or what it was related to). Is there anywhere else I can look to find when the original GERD assigned rating of 0% was given? (I am asking as I am thinking of doing a CUE for the 10% rated in Jan. 2019, and I am thinking I need to have the date originally assigned at 0%? ) Or is this something I would need to ask for copies for from the VA?
      *I know it was previously rated at 0% because I can see where I submitted claims for increase for GERD.....

      I recently received a re-exam for my anxiety disorder that I have a 70% rating for. They sent me a packet explaining they want to lower the rating to 30% because of "improvements made". When i told my treating physician about this, he disagreed that any improvements have been made and agrees to write a statement for me to send in as evidence. I'm just curious how much ground his statement can hold against their examiners and if it is likely that they will reduce my rating or leave it as is. Has anyone else submitted doctors statements and had the VA rule in their favor? Is it common?

      Hi Everyone,
      In my most recent C&P the examiner noted and measured 2 scars on my neck and jaw. I've read the rating info for scars of the Head/Face/Neck and filled in the chart they had because the first rating option didn't apply.  Can someone confirm for me that according to the rating info below, it would qualify me for 30%.  There's pain noted in the C&P with each scar in addition to the characteristics noted below.
      "If there are 6 or more Characteristics, it is rated 80%. If there are 4 or 5 Characteristics, it is rated 50%. If there are 2 or 3 Characteristics, it is rated 30%. If there is 1 Characteristic, it is rated 10%."

      In addition, during the same C&P the examiner documented and agreed (50% more than likely service related) that I had TMD secondary to broken jaw, painful motion of mandible,  reduced ROM, surgical wire in right mandible
      Thanks in advance!

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
