The VA is not trying to find a way to decrease your rating bro. They are the ones who gave it to you. Stop going to to your private civilian docs.

If you are rated " Total and Permanent " , that means the VA will not re-evaluate your rating again. Your rating is permanent. The only way your rating could be changed is if the VA discovers you have been fraudulant in your claims.

The VA medical centers have improved greatly. I get all my care from them. The VA I go to is better than any civilian hospital I've ever been to.

You are throwing your money away by not going to the VA.

I'm rated 70% with Unemployability for PTSD.

The rating P & T means exactly that. "PERMANENT and TOTAL" .

your good until 67 years old, then unemployablity goes away. kids get chapter 35, its about $900 a month full time college student, only about 6 years of college use. county tax exemt, some counties, commissary benefits, base stickers, life time ID for you, state parks pass, medical threw va for you, champva for your dependents, 75% covered.....
