You can have 250 %, but you will only get 100% comp. You can also SMC, which can add to the of monies you will get. Right now I'm at 250% and will be shortly at 480% . My money will increase, but it is hard to injoy. Good luck and God bless!

Yes you can have two 100% like sp4rvn1971 said it will help you get SMC's which can add up and help you pay for any assistance you may need. Some SMC's are small and some are large.

As others have mentioned, a veteran can have multiple 100% evaluations; please note that the veteran cannot hold a schedular 100% as well as Total Disability Because of Individual Unemployability (TDIU) simultaneously. With multiple 100% evaluations, Special Monthly Compensation (SMC) may be an issue.

However, without knowing what the individual 100% evaluations are for or any of the veteran's other circumstances, the level of SMC would be SMC-s per 38 CFR 3.350(i)(1).

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
