Question

I ran into an older couple the other day and they were both 100% VA SC. His wife asked me if I was IU 100% VA SC, and she claimed it was more money. Is there a such thing as getting approved for IU, even though I am already 100 VA SC. Thanks and hope you guys and gals had a good Thanksgiving.

Technically, no, if you are 100% scheduler, the issue of TDIU is moot. The VA won't adjudicate a claim, for TDIU, if a claimant is a 100% and vice versa. I'm thinking they may be receiving HB or A&A, with an SMC "s" award. jmo

PR's response is exactly correct. There are a number of SMCs above 100% in payment amounts, but 100% is 100%.

The 100% schedular and TDIU are treated as the same (sort of) by the VA.

In actual fact, they are based upon different laws/reguations, so they are not the same.

Can you get paid for both? HA!

But, if besides a 100% single SC'd condition, you have additional conditions that add up to 60% or more,

then SMC comes into play. VA math, according to the VA, starts over to calculate the 60%, which is a rather large

bone of contention, since the law can be read that the first 100% consumed the VA math completely.

Update 12/23!!!

My current FDC claim went to Prep for Decision yesterday, and I don't know if it is a good thing or not. This claim would be complete in 2 months. At the bottom of the claim status it states "evidence that we did not receive from you for new and material evidence for previously claimed low back pain". What irritates the hell out of me is that I uploaded all my evidence on Ebenefits a month ago, and mailed it to the VA Evidence Intake Center too, WTH!!! I am so tired of us Vets having to go the extra mile for our claims, and the VA comes up with every bull crap excuse in the world. My last FDC back in the summer, the VA claimed that my Evidence was never uploaded on Ebenefits, even though I had he print out showing what time and date that it was infact uploaded. Hope you guys have a good Christmas, and God Bless!!!

I recently received my award letter from the VA and it clearly states that the unemployability that I put in for was granted and that I was permanent and total. I will not be seeking any type of employment but I am looking into whether I should be receiving any type of SMC on a monthly basis because if it. I have one condition rated at 70% and another at 50%.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.
