It is saying you qualify for (SMC pension payment). Not really hip on SMC, someone will chime in. Special Monthly Compensation

Looks like you may have been granted housebound status (if I am reading that correctly). Your profile shows you at 90%, but what you posted indicates 100%. They should have includes a few pages along

Looks like you may have been granted housebound status (if I am reading that correctly). Your profile shows you at 90%, but what you posted indicates 100%. They should have includes a few pages along with the decision that goes into any rating percentage and compensation changes. You can call 1-800-827-1000 and they should be able to tell you the specifics. You can also look on ebenefits or va.gov and check your disabilities.

Quote

(i) Total plus 60 percent, or housebound; 38 U.S.C. 1114(s). The special monthly compensation provided by 38 U.S.C. 1114(s) is payable where the veteran has a single service-connected disability rated as 100 percent and,

(1) Has additional service-connected disability or disabilities independently ratable at 60 percent, separate and distinct from the 100 percent service-connected disability and involving different anatomical segments or bodily systems, or

(2) Is permanently housebound by reason of service-connected disability or disabilities. This requirement is met when the veteran is substantially confined as a direct result of service-connected disabilities to his or her dwelling and the immediate premises or, if institutionalized, to the ward or clinical areas, and it is reasonably certain that the disability or disabilities and resultant confinement will continue throughout his or her lifetime.

I would think its SMC S House Bound  if you got a 100%rating and then another separate rating  60% OR HIGHER not from the 100%  then you quailfy for the SMC S

Check your E  benefits EOB

 

i KNOW i WENT FROM A 90%COMBINED RATING   AND GIVEN  TDIU P&T  AND GOT ANOTHER SEPARATE CLAIM 70%  THEY GAVE ME THE SMC S H.B. MADE THE IU MOOT.

i NOW HAVE A 100% DEGREE IN RATING  AS IN SCHEDULER RATING.

    • 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.
