What is a VA Rating and How Does the VA Calculate Your Disability Rating?

Video Transcript

A VA rating is a percentage from zero to a hundred that the VA assigns based on the type and the severity of your injuries and condition. This rating will directly determine how much compensation you will receive from the VA. The VA will look at several factors to determine how to rate your disability. This includes medical records that may have doctor and hospital information, testing, and also statements from employers, friends, family, colleagues. The VA considers all of this evidence collectively, and at that point they’re able to issue a decision.
