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.

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
