''I am 60% for neck issue an iu since 1993 I just put in claim a@a. Had comp exam doctor stated I can feed dress or clean my house an my condition is a hazzard.

  (not favorable to your A&A Claim)  UNLESS YOU MEAN YOU CAN'T DO THESE THINGS  ? THEN YES FAVORABLE.

My doctor just put in referral for 8 hr a week aid lady va hositpal  just call an just waiting. (not sure?)

 I was granted iu 60 neck 20 for facture elbow. Shouldnt a smc claim have been open when I was granted this 2001.

(NO) JMO you need to be 100% IU AND 60% S.C. ABOVE THAT FOR  SMC S H.B.

However this is controversial some say if your IU then you can't leave home for work and VA should infer the SMC-S H.B.... I never got this when I was awarded TDIU P&T back in 2002..but times have changed. You possibly could be awarded the SMC S H.B back to 2001 and paid the Adjustments. 

 Comp exam stated I was housebound an a@a will this an doctor note get me the higher a@a

yes its favorable to your claim. (JMO)

I see elbow is a condition for smc k I was never granted or ifferr a claim for me. I think this is a cue.

HUH?  unless you lost the use of your elbow?  it would be loss of use claim but not of a creative organ. probably 10% rating YOU CAN CHECK THE CRITERIA RATING SCHEDULED FOR ALL THESE CONDITIONS THAT YOU HAVE BEEN S.C. FOR.

I just had my mental comp exam same day they have been denied me for year. HUH?? What do you mean here?

Doctor stated it is due to my service on exam. An check boxs for 70%. If granted will this take me to smc r1. NO(JMO)  OR DEPENDS ON YOUR CURRENT RATING!

Last I been in the ilv progarm 4 yr an thy had info I need help never told me to apply or open a claim. An I appeal to dc. That a whole different store. But can this be use as to when the claim should have been open.

I THINK ITS VETERANS CHOICE TO FILE HIS OWN CLAIM  NOT THE VA. (JMO)

Unless I am Mis-Understanding you on all this?

other member please chime in

Yes i.have all those problems an they are list on the a@a comp exam.

It say iu can be use as the 100% rating for smc. 

I had a mental comp exam Doctor check everything for a 70% rating. If granted with 60% for neck an iu would this not make it smc m.

With my doctor note and hospital paying for 8 hr of in home care. Would I get the higher a@a.

 

Last ? Do I have to be rates for loss of use or does it just have to b stated on doctor reports.

Can you tell us what service connected disabilities you have and what the rating is for each one?

As Buck said SMC S is with 100% or TDIU for one specific disability  and any SC independent disability rated at 60% or over triggers SMC consideration  (or it should) or the medical evidence shows you are Housebound.

If you fell into that category in a past award- or will in the future, and the VA does NOT consider you for SMC , they have committed a CUE.

I had a SMC CUE- It is here in the CUE forum.

Husband had 100% P & T for SC PTSD and over 60% for 1151 Stroke ( meaning VA caused the stroke)

but they did not consider  him for SMC.

They granted the CUE  as part of another posthumous award ( AO IHD) ad also granted an additional CUE for IHD.

I suggest that you try to get a local Vet Rep or VSO to make a house call-they used to do that and I hope they still do , to go over your paperwork and prepare the claim for you-

You mentioned an appeal as well and that might have bearing on your next claim.

Unless you have a scanner and can scan and attach the last award here?

If so cover your C file # and name prior to scanning it.

Hi berta. U an other on here t bird help me get info on the cue claim I won back in 2009. My name on here I think was James young buffalo ro left my appeal open from 1993. Found only by doing the cue.

 

Berta I think they did the same thing to me I was granted iu an 60%5293 old ivds now 5243. Back till 1993 But never give smc or even look at.

Decison is on internet ante hester world press I think. I self respent myself. I believe them vso in the regional office are no help. I was told not to do the cue by them. I would have never got my back pay.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
