That's a difficult question! It's all in the regs!
That aside - - two different PTSD examiners may give quite different opinions.

Perhaps more of concern is what can happen when a 100% PTSD rating is awarded.
The VA usually "proposes" that the Veteran is incompetent to manage affairs. This can result in withholding benefits,
transferring a veterans bank account to a fiduciary's control, and so forth.
Generally, the veteran can have a difficult time, unless the ruling is promptly challenged with a formal notice of disagreement.

The available information on Hadit and VAwatchdog.com goes into far more detail than I did.
