    • Next claim going down range finally
      Hamslice..  IMHO, They don't need anything further from you or anyone else.  This is just a catch all statement that they perhaps forgot to type: "NONE"...  
    • Next claim going down range finally
      Update number 2 (cont) I see on My HealthyVet, I have 2 C&P's coming up in June, IM COMP & PEN IM RAD ULTRASOUND Oh, boy, Hamslice
    • Next claim going down range finally
      Update number 2, Went to "Gathering Evidence" today, and they moved up my completion dates to 8/28/16-11/07/2016.  Was in 2017 before. Heres my favorite; Needed from others (1) "These are requests for documents that VA has asked others to provide. Here are two actions you can take to speed up the processing of your claim: If you have access to these documents, you can upload them here on this page. Ask the person or organization in possession of your documents to immediately provide them to VA. To mail documents to your nearest VA Regional Office (VARO), search VA's online VARO directory."   It would be nice to know what they are looking for. I might be able to help! Fun with claims, Hamslice  
    • Veterans First Act
      Right on Hamslice. This is a perfect opportunity to contact your representative before this becomes a law. Ask some friends to do the same. We still have a chance to do something about this. It's go time people-
    • Awaiting BVA Remand for R-2
      It's not that easy. I do not have your c-file. I know nothing about the hx of the claim. Is the bowel or bladder incontinence part and parcel of a SC disease? If so, yes. Remember, there are no time limits on SMCs. The moment you demonstrate your entitlement, be it five or fifteen years ago, that is the date of SMC. I suggest you Private Message me to discuss it.
    • I think I made VA mad
      Are you military retired?  If so what percentage are you at.  I know my husband had to do the admin review, when he hit 50 %. Because there has to be an audit,. And it takes awhile.
    • Just got my C&P letter, what to expect?
      You have to let us know what you are claiming for us to help. Example, PTSD, I don't have and have not been examined for it, so I could not help you there, others would. Also, no drug test that I know of. Hamslice Might want to take a break from the pipe the night before, just saying...  
    • Veterans First Act
      Its all about the money. They use dates to deny and exclude. Its never the intent of the legislation, but, they celebrate when it gets passed, even though some get shorted by dates. My two favorites are; The bill that lets reservists retire a day for a day in combat earlier than age sixty after 9/11.  Sounds great, hurray!!, But, only for those vets that served in combat after Jan 1, 2008.  WTF. And, a recent CBO calculation reports that only 20% of reservists take there retirement pay at age 60, so it is not a worthwhile program and no need to have them get thier retirement any earlier.  Thats because the other 80% are dead.  Thats my favorite right there. Anyway, Hamslice  
    • Should I file a CUE or leave NOD in place?
      The YouTube link should be on this thread.
    • My husband died in motorcycle accident
      The 10% could have been appealed by the spouse but it wasn't. The only factual info here is that he died at 10% SC for PTSD and that he died in a motorcycle accident. I see no way the 10% can be raised. This is one of the most difficult DIC claims I have seen in over 20 years.Actually THE most difficult. It is way too soon to even suggest that she will succeed on this claim. I am concerned that reckless behavior due to PTSD can also be deemed as willful misconduct...just search DIC  misconduct at the BVA to find our what I mean. Search DIC Insanity as well....DIC has been awarded due to insanity in PTSD vets because that is what caused their demise. If he had a documented History of flashbacks,and visual hallucinations solely due to PTSD, like my husband did,  that would be different.   We don't even know if the VA will extend the time frame for her.

Can You Receive More Than 100% Disability?

11 posts in this topic

I have heard that you can receive more than 100% disability. Is this possible? It seem to me that is why they bulked all of my residuals into one code and didn't break them out seperately, so I didin't go over 100%. Even though they should be, but that is another fight/appeal.

Thanks,

Tamara

Yes, I have 100% for PTSD & 100% for Cancer from Agent Orange. You don't draw 2-100% checks. You get a SMC (Special Monthly Compensation). In my case it is something like $295 a month more than the normal 100% rate.

100% SC for one disability plus 60% or greater for additional but independent SC equals SMC-

this is the "S" award-

There are many ways in which a veteran can receive SMC- Special Monthly Compensation-all in

38 USC 1114

No you can not receive a rating higher than 100%. You can however receive compensation at a higher rate than 100% due to different special monthly compensations, such as housebound, A&A or K award.

Seems like it, so try this.

Tamara,

I am rated at 170% schedular, using the VA's math system, but I am only paid at 100%. I do receive SMC as well, at the L1/2 rate.. so you can rceive additonal funds but they are essentially to provide aid and attendance. In my case I have a housecleaner, and a yard man... it pays for that easily. The idea is that you cannot do some of these tasks so money is et aside to help pay for it.... at least thats how I understand it. but.... they generally are for specific injuries etc. Loss of legs, sight things like that.
