How is the VA benefit rating calculated exactly? I have a rating of 50%. Taking my current listed pay grade of an E3 (2 years or less), it is $2,161.87. Taking 50% from the pay grade, it should be $1,080.93. When I look at the pay grade for 50% for VA benefits, it shows that for every 50% rating is $958.44. What exactly is the principle that the VA is basing this $958.44 out of?
Not complaining. It just doesn't make sense that is all. How can the VA just give out a flat dollar amount for a percentage? I am certain that every veteran had different pay grades when they were active. I'm cool with the amount I am already receiving. I am also super happy with the medical that the VA provides. Psh. I have a whole damn team on my health, across America. The math, just doesn't make sense to me that is all.
