Vets’ disability benefits for tinnitus, mental health issues may change

Proposed changes to the Department of Veterans Affairs disability ratings system will mean lower payouts for veterans with sleep apnea and tinnitus in the future but higher payouts for veterans facing mental health challenges like post-traumatic stress disorder and depression.
The changes are part of a months-long review of the department’s Schedule for Rating Disabilities, which governs how VA staffers evaluate and compensate veterans with service-connected injuries.

No veterans would lose benefits under the plan, but veterans applying for disability benefits in the future could see a more difficult path to payouts.
