I have heard that you can receive more than 100% disability. Is this possible? It seem to me that is why they bulked all of my residuals into one code and didn't break them out seperately, so I didin't go over 100%. Even though they should be, but that is another fight/appeal.
Thanks,
Tamara

Yes, I have 100% for PTSD & 100% for Cancer from Agent Orange. You don't draw 2-100% checks. You get a SMC (Special Monthly Compensation). In my case it is something like $295 a month more than the normal 100% rate.

100% SC for one disability plus 60% or greater for additional but independent SC equals SMC-
this is the "S" award-

There are many ways in which a veteran can receive SMC- Special Monthly Compensation-all in

38 USC 1114

No you can not receive a rating higher than 100%. You can however receive compensation at a higher rate than 100% due to different special monthly compensations, such as housebound, A&A or K award.

The maximum a seriously disabled sc vet can receive is more than $5,000+ a month.

Stan and Pam,

Are you sure you aren't looking for 38 CFR 1114?
Seems like it, so try this.

go to website http://www.va.gov/
there is a search box on right side, top of page. Type in 38 CFR 1114 in the search box and you will have results directly below. Just click each link on the relevant item link to see which one you like or need.

Goos Luck,
Tamara

Tamara,
I am rated at 170% schedular, using the VA's math system, but I am only paid at 100%. I do receive SMC as well, at the L1/2 rate.. so you can rceive additonal funds but they are essentially to provide aid and attendance. In my case I have a housecleaner, and a yard man... it pays for that easily. The idea is that you cannot do some of these tasks so money is et aside to help pay for it.... at least thats how I understand it. but.... they generally are for specific injuries etc. Loss of legs, sight things like that.
