Pretty Sure They Gave Me Smc S


mariorivera830

Question

My claim just went to complete on ebenefits. By doing a little math in pretty sure they awarded me SMC S. I thought something like this would be used for p&t vets or tdiu vets. But I am just scheduler. I haven't received my bbe yet so I can't be sure, but my AB8 letter still has a 5 year appointment.

Is there anything I have to do now that I have the S? Or are there any other benefits I can ask for now? Like having my wife be my caregiver if I have to quit working? Just need that p&t first.

Thanks.

You must be a vet since 9/11 and you must be severely disabled this I know. How do you know you are SMC "S". Are you 160% on your rating?

As far as I can calculate, yes. I believe I am at 170%. And I came to the conclusion based on math for the smc s rate plus my dependants. And yes, I am a post 9/11 veteran. Please correct me if my math is wrong on the percentage. But I'm pretty sure....

Thanks.

We worked that part out. Our biggest fear is that I am going to have to quit working. At least that seems to be the general consensus. And while the extra money is nice, it's the insurance on my wife the 4 kids that worries us.

Would having the smc S make applying for caregiver status for my wife easier. Or are there any other the go that we can/should apply for to help ease the transition from a one income family to a va disability income only family.

Ssdi is an option, but don't you have to be p&t to get the expedited claim processing?
