The higher the VA disability rating, the higher the monetary compensation.
Even if you’re formally diagnosed with depression by your healthcare provider, the VA can still assign a 0% disability rating.
rules: 1. For example, two years of missing back pay at a 100% VA disability rating is a whopping $69,763.92. If your claim was denied in the last 12 months, you can file an appeal. If you receive a 0% rating, the VA found your major depressive disorder to be service-connected but also found that the condition does not affect your life enough to receive benefits.
