    SMC

    My husband received his disability packet yesterday with the award decision. Some of it confuses up, certain things make us extremely thankful, and other parts leave us slightly worried. Would someone else interpret some of this of us? Prior to all of this, my husband was rated at 50% for PTSD with 10% SMC for ED. We also received a retroactive payment in the amount of $7362.19 today - how that was calculated is still a mystery to us. His heart surgery was last September, he was rated 100% for the first 3 months following that, and then he filed a claim for an increase in February.

Entitled to special monthly compensation under 38 U.S.C. 1114, subsection (s) and 38 CFR 3.350(i) on account of coronary artery disease and bypass graft surgery times three rated 100 percent and additional service-connected disabilities of erectile dysfunction, bilateral hearing loss, posttraumatic stress disorder, tinnitus, i
