If you have one service connected at 100 percent then two 50 percents what smc would you be.. do they still use the va match after 100 percent.

Yes, there is a recent case where "va math" was upheld beyond 100 percent.  However, two 50 percents combine to 75 percent which rounds up to 80 percent so you should be good to go for smc s.  However, they have to be "seperate and distinct", and you did not include that information in your post.

A and A is a higher level of compensation than SMC S.  Also, there are different levels of Aid and Attendance, too, mostly depending upon the "degree" of the person providing care for you.  For example, If you need a full time nurse to change IV's and what not, then . your A and A will be higher than if you just need someone to help you get dressed and maybe help you to the bathroom.

You're doing "What Ifs," right? What SC's make up your current indicated 100% SC Rating?

Might have to defer to Ask Nod for the actual 411 on A & A vs Housebound, but in general A & A is for VA Pension Vets, whereas Comp Housebound SMC S or S (1) is strictly awarded as a non-taxable comp Award to SC'd Vets.

Your question regarding the "If you have 1 SC rated at 100% and (2) individual SC's rated each at 50%," you would qualify for SMC S (1) Scheduler Housebound, without meeting the requirements listed on the VA required Physician Housebound application.  This Housebound Application must be completed by the Vet's Treating Physician. This is not an easy Award, you actually have to meet VA Housebound requirements, unlike the SMC S (1).
