“How does the VA disability rating system work?”
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) assigns each disability claimant a disability rating. Your disability rating is a number, expressed as a percentage in increments of ten, that designates the extent of your disability according to the VA.
For instance, if your service-related injury or illness leave you with 20 percent of your original ability (according to the VA), you would be given a 20% disability rating.
The system, of course, is not always accurate — and if you believe you are entitled to a higher disability rating, you should consult with a veterans benefits lawyer serving Huntersville immediately.
Monthly veterans disability payments are calculated based on your disability rating. The VA actually publishes disability compensation rates based on disability ratings online.
For instance, if you are unmarried without dependent children, your monthly payment would be:
- 10% disability rating — $142.29
- 20% disability rating — $281.27
- 30% disability rating — $435.69
- 40% disability rating — $627.61
- 50% disability rating — $893.43
- 60% disability rating — $1,131.68
- 70% disability rating — $1,426.17
- 80% disability rating — $1,657.80
- 90% disability rating — $1,862.96
- 100% disability rating — $3,106.04
IMPORTANT: These amounts are current as of 2020 and additional factors — such as your marital status and whether or not you have dependent children — can increase your VA disability payment.
For the most accurate and up-to-date calculations, be sure to check out the VA disability compensation rate table online.
