Facts About VA Disability Ratings

If you were injured in service or suffered an injury afterward that is connected with your service, the VA assigns your condition a disability rating.

Most VA disability ratings range between 0 and 100 percent in increments of 10.

It is important to know that not all disabilities are rated the same way or under the same criteria. The VA generally reserves the 0% rating for conditions that it does not determine to be significantly limiting.

What does a zero percent disability rating mean?

Even conditions rated at 0% are service-connected and eligible for compensation if the condition worsens. You will not have to show that the condition was caused by service because the VA has already determined that it is and simply thinks your current symptoms do not warrant monthly compensation.

At a 0-percent rating, you can qualify for certain ancillary benefits, such as health care, but you will not receive monthly compensation.

You must receive a disability rating of 10-percent or higher to be eligible for a monthly benefit check from the VA.

A 100-percent rating usually corresponds with a total disability or a condition that VA deems extremely limiting. The ratings in between are determined based on rating criteria, which is why it is so important to submit credible, accurate, and thorough evidence.

Current VA Disability Compensation Amounts Based on Rating

The VA updates its schedule of benefits each year.

At a 30 percent or higher rating, Veterans are eligible for additional benefits for dependents living in their household.

If you have two separate service-connected medical conditions, be advised that the VA does not add your ratings together to determine your total rating. Instead, it has its own formula to combine multiple disability ratings.

Depending on your conditions’ combined rating and your ability to sustain employment, you may be eligible for Total Disability Based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU).

TDIU allows Veterans to be compensated at the 100-percent rate in cases where their service-connected disabilities impact their ability to work. However, there a several factors that need to occur to qualify for TDIU.
