Gotta Love VA Math

Cost of Living Allowance (COLA) Explained

My overall disability rating is 90% (technically 86% but rounded up to 90%). Yesterday I was approved for depression which was rated at 50% (it is what I expected since I still work). My rating is still 90% (93% with the depression but rounded down to 90%). I realize that every veteran on this site also has to deal with VA math. For me I find this VA math adds to my depression as well as anxiety levels, but the bright side I am now a little bit closer to 100% P&T. Hopefully my appeal which is pending as well as the higher level review I need to file once I get the BBE from the VA for this last claim (I also had two other issues which appear not to have been approved). I will make it to the 100% P&T.

Thanks for listening to me wine…:😐
