Hello Vets. I new to this forum. I'm glad I found it because this web site has a lot of good information for vets.. My question is a little lengthy one but I really really need help. Question: I am service-connected 100% (static) for RA. Separately, I have bilateral peripheral neuropathy (60%), RA, post operative surgery, left foot for removal of calluses and degenerative arthritis of the left ankle, all combined, (30%). I'm trying to figure out will I qualify for the SMC award based on these percentages of 60% and 30%. Will the VA combined these two disibilites together making it part of my RA that's rated 100%, therefore, making me ineligible to receive SMC? How do they do this? Please help.
