#1 Easiest VA Disability Claim to Win: Tinnitus or “ringing in the ear syndrome”
Tinnitus can only have one VA rating. It is either 10% or nothing. There is no lower VA Disability Rating for Tinnitus, it is always rated at 10%.
#2 Easiest Things to Claim for VA Disability: Musculoskeletal Conditions
Musculoskeletal system conditions include issues with joints and muscles and must involve (1) limitation of range of motion (flexion) and/or (2) painful motion. Symptoms associated with musculoskeletal system conditions include limitation of range of motion (flexion), painful motion, arthritis, weakness, easily fatigued, loss of power, lack of coordination and decreased movement control.
#3 Easy Things to Claim for VA Disability: Mental Health Conditions
Since Mental Health conditions are one of the easiest things to claim for VA disability, I thought I would break down all the different VA ratings for mental health for you in this video as well.
0 Percent VA Disability Rating: A mental condition has been formally diagnosed, but symptoms are not severe enough to either interfere with occupational and social functioning or to require continuous medication. The VA considers this a non-compensable rating.
10 Percent VA Disability Rating: The veteran has occupational and social impairment due to mild or transient symptoms which decrease work efficiency and ability to perform occupational tasks only during periods of significant stress, or the veteran is taking medications continuously to control the symptoms.
30 Percent VA Disability Rating: The veteran has occupational and social impairment with an occasional decrease in work tasks due to symptoms such as depressed mood, anxiety, suspiciousness, panic attacks (at least once per week), chronic sleep impairment, and mild memory loss.
50 Percent VA Disability Rating: The veteran has occupational and social impairment with reduced reliability and productivity due to symptoms such as flattened affect, circumstantial, circumlocutory, or stereotyped speech; panic attacks that occur more than once a week, difficulty understanding complex commands, impairment of short and long term memory, impaired judgment, impaired abstract thinking, disturbances of motivation and mood, and difficulty in establishing and maintaining effective work and social relationships.
70 Percent VA Disability Rating: The veteran experiences occupational and social impairment with deficiencies in most areas such as work, school, family relations, judgment, thinking, or mood due to symptoms such as suicidal ideation, obsessive rituals that interfere with day to day activities, illogical speech, near-continuous panic attacks, depression that affects the ability to function independently, impaired impulse control, neglect of personal hygiene and appearance, difficulty adapting to stressful situations (including work or work-like settings), and inability to establish and maintain effective relationships.
100 Percent VA Disability Rating: The veteran has total occupational and social impairment due to symptoms such as gross impairment in thought process or communication, persistent delusions or hallucinations, grossly inappropriate behavior, persistent danger of hurting yourself or others, intermittent inability to perform day to day activities, disorientation of time and place, and memory loss of names of close relatives, own occupation, or name.
