I'm a Vietnam combat veteran, Navy, and was awarded a 30% PTSD and 10% hearing loss disability by The VA. I'm grateful for the 40% overall assessment given by the VA but I feel that I should have more of a percentage of disability for the PTSD . I receive a pension but is there a possibility for an additional PTSD percentage assessment by the VA?

Any time we believe that our rating should be higher than it is we have to formally appeal the awarded rating. Other than a formal appeal there is no path to an increased rating. Good luck!
