I have the ratings and I applied for "S", so let's see. The lawyers at NVLSP said it is law. I sent in my claim about two weeks ago.

Take your stuff to a VSO or hire a lawyer. For statutory HB all you have to do is have the percentages and just ask for it. If you are IU plus 60% that is all you need. You don't have to prove anything. Just write a letter to your VARO stating you are IU or 100% plus 60% and ask for "S".
