Increased Rating

If you have been granted service connection for a condition, but are not satisfied with the rating that VA has assigned or if the symptoms associated with your service connected disability have increased, you can file a claim for an increased rating.  An increased rating will result in higher monthly benefits.

The VA will consider the status of your disability and determine if it has increased since the last VA decision.  To be awarded an increased rating, VA will consider VA regulations and determine if your percentage of disability has increased in severity.

The VA regulations can be confusing.  Fochler Veterans Law will help you develop your claim, with both medical and lay evidence, to get the maximum benefits that you are entitled to receive.
