Benefits Question

Question

Hello,

 

I recently checked on ebenefits under Benefits and check the SMC box and I was wondering if anyone can tell me what this means:

SMC(S-1)

Entitled to special monthly compensation under 38 U.S.C. 1114, subsection (s) and 38 CFR 3.350(i) on account of medical conditions rated 100 percent and additional service-connected disabilities of limitation of medical conditions independently ratable at 60 percent or more from 05/26/2015 to 10/01/2015.

Rating Date : 11/09/2016

 

 

(Medical conditions is what i put to conceal them).

 

Does this mean it is still active since the rating date is 11/09/2016.  I am still waiting for the official paperwork even tho they closed the case on 11/17/2016(still haven't received any paperwork).

Ebenefits is notoriously unreliable, but, based on what you posted, it looks like get SMC S

(Housebound), which is another 347 per month, in a decision made in early November.  

Did your pay increase for December?  It would confirm it if your pay went up 347 per month.

I did not get a pay increase for December.  I still am waiting to receive the packet explaining everything.   From reading other posts it may be ebenefits rushed to change that they sent out a decision letter in middle of November, but maybe since thanksgiving happened it slowed the process down.

    • 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.
