    • Congratulations Thomas54  way to go buddy! Victor82  it depends on what they rated you for? If its TDIU P&T Then no you are not suppose to be doing any kind of work.
    • MSR is Military Service Record, and SMR is the same just Service instead of Military.  Pretty much first day of boot camp till your exit physical, preservice physicals are usually included.
    • A similar thing happened to me and they shot it down very quickly- In my NOD -.... I made a specific bullet point paper listing the dates of the connections to dx./ treatment dates and any doctor information-  - "bolded and underlined for clarity" - Good Luck 
    • I emailed Keli too-  Since the DRO recently called with my new decision and stated"I have never seen an MST case as violent and ongoing as yours, I just had to call and tell you". Seriously - after 2 NOD's you call or .... finally read my claim!!    My complaint :  this statement was made to me, it was the same evidence the DRO looked at that was submitted in the low ball rating back in 2010!   I had an NIS reports,with crime scene photos and schematics of room- Sheriff Reports, 15 witness statements, the offender's confession of the attempted murder and rape, his court martial & discharge then me as a Prosecutorial witness at the same offenders murder trial of his next victim 3 mos after my assault........The only things I added was an IMO and the blocking of the parole hearings, now in the present day. ($5,000- out of pocket expenses) so a delayed decision was in error. I am up to 90% on my own, but I am tired -  I have an attorney that is processing for backdating pay due to the above, and it is going very well with all the evidence. What if I had not been so persistent? The VA loves that! I have my retirement benefits,- due to serving 22 years -  but that was never the point for me getting 100%DV  - Just 100% of what a true evaluation is for my circumstances!  
    • Greetings all, This is my first post after looking for similar situations. My C&P exam for spine issues was in June and it seemed favorable until an addendum was made this month which turned everything around. They denied my claim for aggravated spine issues and had inaccurate information stating my condition didn't progress until after service. Is the best way to go about this by filing an appeal or by making a new claim for low back pain?

Can you be rated more than 100% disabled and if so are you paid more?

It depends on your disabilities.

If you have multiple disabilities then it is difficult to get a higher evaluation.

If you have a serious disability that is rated at 100 percent and have others totaling 60 percent or housebound should receive SMC S.

There are other scenarios that also come into play.

I noticed you are 170% so you get more than 100% pay. If I remember right aren`t you a PTSD vet?

SMC = Special Monthly Compensation

They are paid either in addition to (SMC K), or in place of regular ratings (all others). There are several different levels of SMC, and several different combinations of them as well. The most common are Housebound and Aid and Attendance, both typically paid at the rate of SMC L. Higher levels of Aid and Attendance are allowed, depending on the amount of care needed by the vet. They are typically paid at the rate of either SMC R1, or R2. If you are rated at 100% for a single disability, and have another single disability that is ratable at 50%, or 100%, then you are entitled to the next higher rate of SMC. This is in addition to the addtional 60% (single or combined) disabilities that jbasser spoke of. SMC is a complicated beast that is very hard to understand. If you want to learn more about it, it is governed by 38 USC 1114, and regulated by 38 CFR 3.350
