    Chris,

    Thank you for your site. With the information you provided and I purchased, I received a 70% PTSD rating. I also have a DRO hearing next month based on a NOD filed based on information from your site on another claim. Using your info for a new cover letter for that meeting.

    Thank you again,

    R.

    I filed a claim for PTSD, I was only awarded 30%, should I have gotten more?!?! Is the average rating for PTSD alone 50%?? If anyone can help, or have any suggestions, I would appreciate it…..

      Derek,

      There is no “average” rating – you should compare your symptoms to the Impairment Rating Table for Mental Health conditions and see if the percent matches your symptomatology.

    I am from the Vietnam era. In the infantry.65-67. spend a one year tour in Vietnam. Begin claims since 2001. PTSD claim of 50%. My second claim of 60% on the prostate cancer and removed. Now, I have after effects, severe incontinence, visit the toilet within 45 min. to the hour throughout 24/7. VA only rated me 80% total. Denied the unemployability once so resubmitted it again. Almost a year ago.

    At my C&P exam the psychologist said I was, Total occupational and social impairment, Is at least as likely as not 50% or more unemployable and is at least as likely as not 50% or more probability that my PTSD has increased in intensity. What does this mean?

      Based on that quote alone, I can’t say for sure. But it sounds to me that you should be able to get a TDIU 100% rating – AND a rating higher than 50% for your PTSD.

      Are you getting that now? You might want to consider getting a lawyer or professional advocate to help make sure that they VA doesn’t short-change you on the effective dates and ratings.
