Sorry to hear your bad VA diagnose's but they can get that  if your not to for into it?


AS for as getting more comp  you bet you can  if your not SC For it yet?

If not you should file a claim on it  and it depends what they rate you on it if your 70% now  you would need another rating of 90% to bring your SC Ratings to 97% rounded off to be 100% and a possibly  to qualify you for SMC S1 Statutory H.B....even though your on the extra scheduler with the IU at 70% and getting paid at the 100%  you still must qualify for the SMC's usually this is a hard rating to get because of the IU AT 70%.

 TO get up to the 100%  yes you will need additional S.C.Disability's to at least 90%

So if you have not filed a claim for the Prostate Cancer...File it tomorrow and any other contention you may have that are secondary/or aggervated by to any of your S.C disability's,  you should send in evidence with your Medical records and DD-214   And any STR's  but If you just now came down with it  get your VAMC Medical records...if you are a Vietnam vet   then this is a Presumptive  SC Disability= A.O.

I wish you the Best

Yes.  Compensation does not "max out" at 100%, there are multiple levels of SMC above that.  

Prostate Cancer is curable.   My FIL had it and died of something else 30 years later.

    • 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.
