The short answer is we dont know.  

A guess would be that you have been awarded an extra 30 percent for an increase OR you got a new disabilty rating which resulted in an additional 30 percent.  

You have  at least 2 choices to find out:

1.  You can wait for the BBE.  (recommended)

2.  You can try to call your VSO, who may or may not know, and who may or may not tell you the truth.

Option (1) wait for the Award/Denial Letter or go see your POA VSR. Your VSR should be able to access your C-File on his computer. Give him a call first, you may have to visit the VSO HQ office at your RO.

While your waiting for the Award Letter, file a VA FOIA requesting your complete C-File, you're going to need it for your probable Appeals.

Could you share what made you think you'd be Awarded IU? Are you too disabled to do even Sedentary Work that would provide in excess of the VA SGI $12,400?

Have you contacted the VA Vocational Rehabilitation Dept to verify that you are currently Unemployable due solely to your SC Conditions? The VR Denial of Services Letter can be a Deal Maker with IU Claims.

You must file for TDIU and specify which disability makes you unemployable.   I am also 90%, but I have TDIU.  It is a big difference in money.   Plus once you get TDIU you may be eligible for SMC  "S" which is another $300 a month.  Now when you figure we get a 2% increase for me this means another $70 a month with my two SMC's.   So all told my TDIU P&T plus SMC gets me over $3500 a month now and will be close to $3600 when we get the 2%.  I had to fight for it and I was denied the first time around, but with Voc. Rehab you should apply yesterday.

    • 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.
