I agree with brokensoldier.  In addition to a possible SMC, DIC (for your dependents) is dependent on "the cause of death".  

It needs to be service connected "cause of death" to get DIC for the first 10 years.  After 10 years, the dependents should get DIC regardless of the cause of death.  

So, additional SC disabilites is a good thing for both SMC and DIC.
