Smc S Paid!


I just got a check for $8200 bucks from the VA for "S". That is all it could be since I knew they had finalized the decision. This would be two years of retro for "S". That is the fastest payoff in history since I only sent in the claim about 5 weeks ago. I checked my bank account. I have not gotten the letter yet, but I think I will get it today. Hot Damn!

Good job, John! More evidence of the truth to the "squeaking wheel gets the grease" theory.

Yes, this was Bradley v Peake. I sent in my claim and sent a copy of the Fast Letter with it. I fit the profile exactly, so there was just no question about a matter of settled law according to lawyers at NVLPS. I have not got the letter yet, but what else could it be since then only other claim I have is a CUE that is going to the Court of Vet Appeals and that is for much more than 8K. I was pretty shocked when I saw my bank account. Usually, I get the decision letter first. The regulara VA check won't hit my bank until 11-01-2010. I wonder if the new amount will be reflected in my new check amount this month? I am pretty sure it will. I phrased my claim as a request for the statutory benefit of SMC "S". No mention of housebound or any of that. I talked to Phil and Teac about that format. So this must be an indication that people here are going to get paid.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
