VA Disability Rating

Every condition is given a VA Disability RatingA VA Disability Rating is a percentage that the VA’s Rating Authorities assign a Disabled Veteran during the VA Disability Process.

The VA Disability Rating determines the amount of VA Disability Benefits a veteran receives for their service-connected conditions.

The percentage of the VA Disability Rating is meant to reflect the severity of the condition. A 0% VA Disability Rating is given to a condition that doesn’t really negatively affect the veteran at all, while a 100% VA Disability Rating is given to a condition that makes the veteran unable to work or properly care for himself.

Each VA Disability Rating is rounded off to the nearest 10: 40%, 50%, 60%, etc.

The Total Combined VA Disability Rating

After each of the conditions a veteran has is given a VA Disability Rating, all the ratings are then combined using VA Math to give the veteran a single Total Combined VA Disability Rating. This overall VA Disability Rating is then used to determine the exact amount of VA Disability Benefits the veteran will receive.

Our VA Disability Chart details the monetary amounts a veteran will receive for each VA Disability Rating. All veterans are given the same amount for each VA Disability Rating, and the amounts are only adjusted when factors like children and spouses are involved.
