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.
