Is sleep paralysis a disability? Sleep paralysis is not a disability on its own, neither is sleepwalking, but both of these are considered symptoms of the greater sleep disorder categories that can increase VA ratings. Some disorders fit into other categories and can still increase ratings.
What is the VA disability rating for sleep disturbances? A 30 percent rating is awarded when a veteran experiences chronic daytime sleepiness (i.e. hypersomnolence). A 50 percent rating tends to be the most common evaluation assigned as it is consistent with the veteran’s use of a CPAP machine.
What is the highest VA disability rating for insomnia? 38 C.F.R. § 4.130. The Veteran’s service-connected insomnia is currently rated noncompensable prior to July 9, 2012 and as 10 percent disabling from July 9, 2012.
How much does the VA give you for insomnia? Insomnia and other sleep related-disorders can qualify a Veteran for disability benefits if they can prove that their condition was caused by service. Insomnia can be rated anywhere on the VA disability rating scale — from 0–100% — which means Veterans could receive up to $3,221.85 from the VA for their insomnia.
