Question

As promised, I attach a big winner. I've never found so many CUEs under one rock. Kev's DRO reviewer called him up to tell him he knew more about SMC than she did. My name never came up fortunately.

I just found this forum. I have been searching for help with SMC. I’m so impressed with what I’ve seen here. I was about to go to a lawyer but I’m hoping I can get help here, instead.

Amazing job. I’ve been trying for many years, without success. How did you do it? Where can I go to get help? I have Multiple Slerosis 16 years and I’m only at SMC (m).

What is pyramiding? Is there a person who understands the SMC and how to file so that the VA representatives know how to properly assign the correct SMC level? It seems arbitrary, almost like the VA rep was just cut and pasting from the manual because they didn’t really understand MS and the long list of conditions that follow.

MS is rated under DC 8018 but only discusses the minimum rating of 30%. Obviously, to get to SMC M either you have other ratings above 50% or 100% which give you the "bump" permitted by §3.350(f)(3) or (4).

Needing A&A is a 100% rating in itself which got you to SMC L in the first place. 

Always understand, SMC is the least understood of all VA entitlements. I've had raters tell me they have tried for years to grasp it but never succeeded. That begs the question "So who did you turn to in order to figure it out?" This is why I end up litigating in this area more than any other. It's also one of the most lucrative for the Vets as SMC is paid once you can prove entitlement-even if it was years or decades ago.

A/N, as a Lay Amateur Psychologist I would feel safe in DBQing your Self reported symptoms of being a Chronic "argumentative A$$H$$$" as "more likely than not" presenting and documented while on Active Duty or at the very least within the 12 months after discharge and continuing as a Chronic condition till present.

Let us know if it's ever SC'd, maybe added as an SMC K, I've got an FDC ready to go.
