have a question. My husband just received his rating of 100% from the VA. ONe area/health area is rated at 100% No where in the paperwork does it state "unemployeable". Are there different ratings of 100% ? I am in the process of looking up the benefits associated with this rating . thanks! joyce

Actually what you should look for is Permanent and Total. Sometimes it is hard to spot but somewhere it should either say that no future exams are needed. Congrats 100% is not easy to get.

There is no difference as 100 percent is 100 percent. As stated by Pete the only concern for you now is P/T which adds educational benefits for you and any dependant children and champus for you.

yes I did find that it says that we are eligible for the dependents educational assistance and "you currently have a total service connected disability, permanant in nature." so I guess that answers that question. I assume that if he was deemed unemployable it would say so somewhere. thanks for the advice! Joyce

At 100%, permanent and total............then I hope that you are not asking, just because it doesn't say "unemployable", whether or not he can actually be employed. In other words, I hope just because it does not say "unemployable", that he is gonna go out and get a job.
I don't think that that is what you are saying, but I just want to make sure.

Your husband might be eligible for housebound SMC. This is something to check into. There are state benefits also for P&T benefits. Also you can get champVA and some property tax benefis and auto tags for free. You can get a military ID and use military bases like the BX or PX.
