One main differnce is that R-1 is about 900 bucks more in monthly comp.

R-1 is a Special A & A benefit that requires:

1. the veteran to be in recipt of a rate equal to the SMC "0" award.(38 USC 1114 "O")

2.the veteran also meets the requirements of regular A & A under 38 CFR 3.352 (a)

So basically the veteran must meet-by medical evidence both the "0" award criteria and the "L" criteria -

R-2 kicks in when the veteran additionally meets requirements for higher levels of SMC-this higher criteria is found within 38 CFR 3.352 (:rolleyes: (2)

R-2 also involves the needed services of a health care professional on a daily basis such as placement of indwelling catheters, changing of sterile dressings , etc.

so is you get two L that puts you at the R1 level and if you need health care services that puts you in the R2 levl of a&a. does a vet get the rate that is on the pay chart or it is different.

I just received my notice from the Waco VARO that my DRO Hearing is scheduled for Oct 12, 2007 at 8:45 AM and I am supposed to check in 1 hour before the Hearing and that they have scheduled several hearings cause many Veterans do not show up.

My Appeal is for the proper effective date because the VARO did not consider A&A when I was granted 100% P&T for Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia which the VA should have considered when it granted the Award in 1996.

I have had several crashes on my computer and some of the evidence I had bookmarked is lost and I have to start all over but at least I have a month to get ready.

You got A&A for panic disorder and agoraphobia?

Pete, You'll do fine ;-) I lost everything on my last computer crash - - I have to start all over again. So glad I hard-copied the most vital papers. Let us know if you need some case citations or support! Adora

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
     
    Note:

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
