sammy104,

If his non - sc'd stroke is the reason for his IU - then no - he does not meet the criteria for IU.

Pension would pay more than SC'd at 20% - but pension is income limited.

There might somehow be a chance at A&A or housebound, maybe other's will chime in.

You mentioned trying to obtain IM0s in the past to attempt to see if his SC disability could have possibly caused or contributed to his stroke.

Strokes can come from clots in extremities where the circulation is compromised by injury or amputation.

Deep vein thrombosis can occur in arms or legs and the clot can pass into the brain.

What was the medical cause of his stroke?

Do you have an IMO yet to support the claim for SC of the stroke?

Carlie is correct- he might be eligible for Pension but that would be limited by income.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
