Veterans a tip on tinnitus.

Tinnitus is a compensable disability with a rating of 10%. If you have a constant ringing in your ears, and were exposed to high frequency noise. Typically turbine engines, generators and compressors then you should apply for the rating.

Typically, the VA will tell you that hearing loss is not compensable. You must insist on the evaluation. The condition is not treatable with a hearing aid.

In my case my loss was caused by a 45KW 400cycle S&S generator. I can hear but not understand voices which fall within the harmonics of 400 cycles.
