Do your docs state in writing that you are housebound or in need of

A&A due solely to your SC'd disabilities ?

If your PTSD, solely, makes you TDIU, then I would say "yes." If not, then "no." jmo

Based on what you posted, yes. To start off, send it a 21-4138 to your regional office, requesting SMC S, under Bradley Vs Peake

AND OR housebound in fact.

If you do not qualify under Bradley, you can still get "housebound in fact", but you would likely have to have a C and P exam, unless there is already evidence in your med records that you are housebound.

I suggest you also ask for retro to the date of your most recent ratings, since SMC S is automatically inferred if you meet Bradley Peake criteria, and, it would appear you do. You can read up on Bradley vs Peake, there is much on it. Without reviewing your medical records and c file, along with your decisions, however, we dont know for sure.

Thanks for your responses. My PTSD is why Im getting the TDIU. AT this time I have not been told that I am housebound by a doctor but my psych Dr. is recommending for the TeleMental Program?

I have done as suggested and requested my c-file. However, the benefits counselor said that I do not qualify because I have no LOSS of USE of legs, arms, etc....I didn't qant to question anymore since I didn't have a good understanding of Bradley Peake

Oh yeah I do get SMC K for loss of creative organs...ovary and uterus. Oh yeah, I was just inpatient again for PTSD....would trying to get it raised do anything to help?

    • 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.
