WAC-Vet75, nope never heard back, yet. Next wk I'll be home all week and will try daily to get in touch w/them. I bet they'll call me back if I say I'm interested in leaving my estate to them!

pr



PR, did you ever get a call back from NVLSP? I sent them an email, applicable regs with responses, but have not heard a thing from them so far.

John - mine was inferred in '99 when they awarded me, statuatory 100% but they denied it. It's been under appeal since'99 and is now headed back to the BVA, before returning to the court. In the meantime I have 20+10+10+10+10, which should total 60% and entitle me to the "s" award but they denied that, using the combined ratings chart/table, which is a clear error. At least it'll be awarded eventually to August, 2010, when I win that part.

Pete

I think both you and Phil are owed retro on "S" since it should have been inferred when you got 100%. I would not give up on that. If there is nothing in your records that say they considered it and rejected it then you know they did not even think about it. 10+ years of S retro would be some big dollars.

Sydney
If you did not notice this, the VA is proposing incompetency, according to what you posted. You need to address this, if you have not already.
Also, according to the way I interpret what you posted, you are 100 + 70, and eligible for SMC S under Bradley vs Peake. You would want to deal with both issues, but it is unlikely to matter whether you get SMC S or not if some crooked VA attorney winds up stealing all your money anyway as your fiduciary. If your wife or someone like this is your fiduciary, however, and you are comfortable with this, then leave it alone. But, unless there is a compelling reason, you do not ever want the VA to pick out your fiduciary for you...YOU want to do the picking. Probably a family member or trusted friend.
