HOW DISABILITY RATINGS WORK

April 20, 2017|Posted in: Government Resource, Health

The VA determines a disability rating after reviewing your service medical records (“SMR”), C&P exam report and any other evidence submitted to them in support of your claim based upon the criteria below. You may have one or more symptoms in a higher disability rating, but still receive a lower rating that reflects where MOST of your symptoms are present. If you have multiple injuries, disability ratings are not added together (60% + 40% ≠100%). The VA has an internal ranking system of injuries that will determine your final disability rating.
