VA Service Connected Ratings Disability Calculator
Combined Ratings Source: Veterans Affairs
If VA finds that a Veteran has multiple disabilities, VA uses the Combined Ratings Table to calculate a combined disability rating. Disability ratings are not additive, meaning that if a Veteran has one disability rated 60% and a second disability 20%, the combined rating is not 80%. This is because subsequent disability ratings are applied to an already disabled Veteran, so the 20% disability is applied to a Veteran who is already 60% disabled. Below you will find the steps VA takes to combine ratings for more than one disability and examples using the Combined Ratings Table to illustrate how combined ratings are calculated.

Today is the 4th of July in the United States, and as such, Wake Da Fuq Up radio is observing the national holiday and will be re-airing the previous weeks episode regarding the Veterans Affairs scandal. We here at Wake Da Fuq Up radio think that the information that was conveyed in said episode would be of benefit to a wider audience than the show received last week, so without further ado, Wake Da Fuq Up Radio is proud to present, this encore presentation of Episode 8, the Veterans Affairs scandal: The stories you haven't heard.
"There are failures of government, failures of bureaucracy, failures of communication and failures to care for our veterans – who of course deserve far better. But at its core I’d argue that this medical train wreck is, above all, a failure of management" - Forbes

Veterans of the United States armed forces (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard) may be eligible for a broad range of benefits and services provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Some of these benefits may be utilized while on active duty. These benefits are codified in Title 38 of the United States Code. This booklet contains a summary of these benefits effective Jan. 1, 2013. For additional information, visit www.va.gov.
General Eligibility: Eligibility for most VA benefits is based upon discharge from active military service under other than dishonorable conditions. Active service means full-time service, other than active duty for training, as a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, or as a commissioned officer of the Public Health Service, Environmental Science Services Administration or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or its predecessor, the Coast and Geodetic Survey.
Dishonorable and bad conduct discharges issued by general courts-martial may bar VA benefits. Veterans in prison must contact VA to determine eligibility. VA benefits will not be provided to any Veteran or dependent wanted for an outstanding felony warrant.
We invite Virgin Islands veterans to share their stories. Stories connect generations and help our young people learn about the past and maybe choose a military career.
On this Veterans Day, it's important to note that U.S. veterans are dying by the tens of thousands every year and nobody is being held accountable. Very few VA employees have been indicted or arrested for these crimes. Over 8,000 veterans a year are committing suicide because they cannot get access to federally mandated health care as earned benefits, the equivalent of a World War II Bataan Death march every year.
Because of this, a group of veterans is suing the United States of America, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs and the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as all past Secretaries still living.
Dave Gahary speaks with two of them, Tony Woody and Gary Kendall.
