Likely, yes.  

    Not only do you qualfiy per "howell", but you could also meet the "statuatory" SMC S, provided that your disabilities are "seperate and distinct" from each other.  Bradley vs Peake, however, is rough and there are many pitfalls.  

Howell suggests if you are not working, then you are not leaving the house "for work".

My tdiu is based soley off depression then i have 60 VSO said i need a seperate one rated 60. I told him thats not correct and read his own information he copied and pasted to me about smc S. I copied the secetion that says disabilitiy or disabilities.  It just closed so i'll have to wait for paper work and ready to fight them some more. 

 

The important thing to keep in mind here is that the disability for which you are receiving TDIU must be entirely separate from the second service-connected disability (or disabilities) rated at 60% or more

Your VSO Quoted This?

The important thing to keep in mind here is that the disability for which you are receiving TDIU must be entirely separate from the second service-connected disability (or disabilities) rated at 60% or more

I would say your VSO is correct/To Meet The SMC S House Bound Criteria.

However if your tdiu is based off you can't leave home for work  then and you were not granted the SMC S based off that  then appeal the decision and request the SMC S H.B, Be given ===Quote parts of the Howell Rule broncovet mention

Hey, if the SA isn't secondary to the MDD, then 50 +10 = 60%. He's in for SMC S based on 100 + 60.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
