Despite what you may think, a zero percent disability rating for hearing loss is the most common. This doesn’t mean that there is zero hearing loss, however. A zero percent rating just means that the hearing loss isn’t considered disabling.
Now, if a veteran’s hearing loss is considered disabling, then the maximum VA rating that can be given is 100%. This doesn’t mean that every veteran with disabling hearing loss will be rated at 100%, but it is the maximum possible rating.
To be rated at 100%, a veteran must have total deafness in one ear and profound deafness in the other. In addition, they must also have word recognition scores of 40% or less.
