increase in disability benefits was created by JSRomano
I was rated at 20% many years ago and have been collecting that amount for years. I now feel that, given my disability, I should be rated more like 30/40%. Friends of fine that have similar situations are getting 40%. How do I go about requesting that the VA raise it?

To request an increased rating after your disability worsens, all you need to do is write a letter to the VA regional office stating you believe an increase is needed and providing medical evidence to support an increase. A word of caution, however. Sometimes when you request an increase, you will actually end up getting a decrease in benefits. If that happens, you can appeal this decrease in the same way that you can appeal a denial of VA benefits. Read this link to find out how to appeal if the VA Denies You Disability Benefits
