Fast Letter 09-33 SUBJ: Special Monthly Compensation at the Statutory Housebound Rate
This letter provides guidance for adjudicating claims involving entitlement to special monthly compensation (SMC) at the housebound rate based on a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC or Court) in Bradley v Peake.
Sure do wish that my concentration and ability to retain information was better, because this seems to be great info
I have the ratings and I applied for "S", so let's see. The lawyers at NVLSP said it is law. I sent in my claim about two weeks ago.
I AM COMPLETELY UNABLE TO HANDLE MY VA PAPERWORK. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. I CANNOT GET MY CRAP TOGETHER. I NEED TO FILE STUFF, AND CANT ORGANISE MY THOUGHTS ENOUGH TO GET STUFF IN LINE. WHAT CAN I DO???
Take your stuff to a VSO or hire a lawyer. For statutory HB all you have to do is have the percentages and just ask for it. If you are IU plus 60% that is all you need. You don't have to prove anything. Just write a letter to your VARO stating you are IU or 100% plus 60% and ask for "S".
