  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

I Can't Figure out my Compensation

Question

Still waiting for a final determination on my Compensation. I've had a radical prostatectomy , rated at 100% (temporary) and have a diagnosed surgical scar  and ED since following the operation mid-2017. I also have tinnitus at 10%

 

Currently here is there wording:

Total Combined Disability

You have a 100% final degree of disability. This percentage determines the amount of benefit pay you will receive.

And I have been receiving the amount for 17 months so far. So when I get a Permanent rating, if its not 100%.....

 

My question is if they remove the 100% radical prostatectomy payment, will I not be able to keep the SMC (K-1) for scar and ED?

And if so how will that calculate out?

If you have 100 percent plus another seperate 100 percent, that would suffice for SMC S housebound statuatory.  Unless a decision addresses otherwise, you would keep smc k.  

So, SMC k with 100 percent for a married vet is 3336.  You should be at 3700 with smc s also.    Im not sure of your question...did this answer it?
