An increased rating opens the door to significantly higher tax-free compensation benefits. Take a moment to review the current VA Compensation Rates outlined below. Our team of experts will guide you in determining your eligibility for a higher rating.

Already Service-Connected? Discover Your Eligibility for a Higher Rating.

If you’re already service-connected, there’s a strong possibility that you qualify for a higher rating based on your service-connected impairment. Rest assured, our dedicated team will provide comprehensive assistance throughout the entire process. From filing the initial claim to navigating the appeals process, we’re committed to ensuring your success.

Understanding “VA Math” and Combined Ratings for Multiple Service-Connected Impairments

If you have more than one service-connected impairment, the VA utilizes a combined rating table, often referred to as “VA math,” to determine your overall rating. This evaluation considers the severity of each condition on a scale from 0% to 100% (in 10% increments). Typically, initial decisions and first-time appeals result in lower ratings. However, our team will fight tirelessly to maximize your entitled benefits.

Discover Scenarios Where Higher Ratings and Additional Benefits Are Warranted

At times, certain impairments warrant higher ratings and additional benefits. Here are a few examples:

1. Sleep apnea: While the VA typically grants service connection for sleep apnea at 30%, if you require a CPAP machine, you automatically qualify for a higher rating of 50%.

2. Headaches: The VA often assigns a low rating of 0% for service-connected headaches. However, medical records and personal journals documenting the severity of your headaches can be valuable evidence to support your case and potentially secure an increased rating.

3. Mental health conditions: We understand that discussing mental health can be challenging, leading to lower ratings when veterans choose not to delve into the details of their feelings. Our highly experienced staff will have compassionate conversations with you, exploring alternative resources to help you attain the rating you rightfully deserve.

4. Impotence: If you experience loss of use of a reproductive organ, you may be entitled to Special Monthly Compensation (SMC) which currently amounts to $118.33 per month.

5. Dependents: If you have a rating of 30% or higher, you may be eligible for additional compensation to support your dependents.
