What SC got you the IU Award? Did you also get a T & P No Future Exams? How about the SMC S (1)?

Strictly for SMC S (1) Statutory Housebound clarification, regardless of CSC 100% or IU Award you must have (1) SC which is independently rated as 100%, then (1) or more SC's that have a CSC of 60%.

Multiple SC's included in the determination of a Vet's IU Award would therefore not be eligible for computing the 60% CSC necessary for the SMC S (1) Statutory Award.

However, on the other hand....... if you've lost the use of your upper and/or lower extremities........ and if you wear diapers for incontinence................. and have a Foley catheter in most of the time or perhaps an active PICC line for chemotherapy and/or antibiotics................and need physical therapy in-home to avoid being put into a nursing home............ and all the disabilities and/or needs are based on service connected disabilities............ boy howdy then you qualify for SMC (r)(2) which is $8,676.60 a month (married). That's why they call SMC a "quality of life" entitlement. It's earned when you consider the prohibitive cost of the loss of freedom to move about the country unfettered. 

Merry Christmas to all the Hadit family. 2018 can only get better.
