What Are Some Tips & Tricks To Increase My Disability Rating? 

Many veterans are unaware of the numerous tips and tactics that can be used to improve their overall rating. So, here are three short pointers to bear in mind when filing your claim!

1) You are evaluated based on your worst day, not your average day! When you talk about your disability, you should act as though you are experiencing a flare-up, because this alters the way you communicate about things in general. That alone will undoubtedly make a significant difference in your life!

2) You are evaluated solely on the basis of range of motion, not on the basis of operations, pain, or other factors. It is important to describe your range of motion on your worst day when answering questions because this provides a far more detailed picture of your health than simply speaking about it as if it were a typical day.

3) A large number of disabilities are assigned numerous ratings, which might be confusing. Example: Your knees are rated according to their flexion and extension; your hips are rated according to your ability to tuck your knees to your torso; your ability to cross your legs; your elbows are rated according to their flexion, extension, and supination; etc.

Remember that these are only a few tips and methods that no one actually shares with you prior to your consultations, and the VA doctors are surely not going to share this information with you, but perhaps it will be of use to you!! Would you like to learn more and have us assist you in improving your current rating?
