My depression has gotten worse, where i need someone around because i'm a mess and my place will just be trashed along with me not taking care of myself and getting out of bed for days at a time some days.. plus i just cant seem to keep things in order or eating healthy on my own.. so i applied for aid and attandence after reading what you guys have put.. so i was just curious if i get 100 for depression 50 sleep and 50 migraines what it would be and if aid and attandance.. it should be comeing bak to me in about a month.. just had c and p exam .. thank you guys so much with out you icould not figure this out.
  2. smc math

    If you have one service connected at 100 percent then two 50 percents what smc would you be.. do they still use the va match after 100 percent.
  3. e benefits question

    My claim just completed yesterday.. ebenefits now shows migraines secondary to sleep apnea on ebenefits but does not show a percentage and does not have a date. But it has an arrow showing that it is secondary. But it still says non service connected the claim was just decided yesterday but that part is updated. just curious opinions on this?
  4. Question about Caregiver Program

    ok I think that you have to have a pension which i don't i did 10 years i'm a 911 veteran. I think i read caregiver is for pensions people that recieve them?

Anyway i'm really out of it.. guess i've been this way for along time.. now its the no sleep for days at a time.. i'm going try fix that and make myself finally use the cpap.. My question is i am 50 percent sleep apnea 70 depression anxiety tdui pt. so i get paid 100 percent.. I really do not function well on my own and need help especially when i go in my ruts.. the place just because bad.. u get the point plus having someone around to help out just to talk with helps.. I filed migraines secondary sleep apnea . i think i'll win i have a nexus that will put me at 160 i think i'm so confused.. if you can understand my babbling.. whould i get smc and extra money to pay someone to help me out. I"m currently paying out of pocket but living outside us so its not as bad.. thanks everyone I filed that aid and attendance but the whole smc s or l stuff confuses hell out of me.. so any help i would appreciate

  13. I filed to remove my ex wife they sent a stop of payment the very next month I did it on ebenefits august 4th.. my claim completion date is Estimated Completion: 05/15/2017 - 03/04/2018 ... I remember when claims took 2 years but I guess the first date has been shortedned then what first applied just looked at it again.. I know each Va office takes a different amount of time. I was out of Norfolk VA and maybe I should have waited but i just updated my address to Jamaica tonight so i dont know if that is going to add time. I would appreciate If anyone knows estimate of current claim times.. I uploaded the divorce paper work and we do not have children i read online that those should be quick if dont through ebenefits. Thanks for help and advice.
  14. Berta, Hello I know you are one of the experts on this site and maybe you can help me.  I am going to be getting married in Jamaica to a non us citizen. I am current 100 pt and wanted her to be able to use the chapter 35 benefits for school.  I called the 1800 number twice yesterday and two people told me she needs a social but could not or would no tell where they are getting this information.  I just called again and another guy actually tried to look it up and could not find any information and was not sure and told me to try and get a letter from social secuirty saying she can not get one.  I was wondering if you have heard about this and if it is possible thanks

  15. I do not plan on bringing her to the states at this time so we are not filing the paper work.. I am hoping someone has had this issue and can let me know if i can add a dependant withou a social security number.
