The VA special monthly compensation (SMC) is an extra amount added to the VA monthly compensation you already receive. Veteran’s who require additional assistance due to an arm or leg amputation or who are deaf or blind are eligible for this extra compensation.
Veterans in these cases tend to be homebound. It may be necessary to add additional compensation to the existing compensation due to the additional care taken to help those Veterans.
SMC will add to your VA rating even if you have received a 100% total disability rating. Even at 100%, you will be receiving more than you do at 100%. Homebound Veterans are unable to work for a living, so this helps compensate for that.
SMCs are designed to compensate for non-economic factors, including the severity of a disability, social inadequacy, or inconvenience. In other words, it is not intended to compensate for how the disability affects veterans’ ability to earn a living. A disabled Veteran receives typical monthly compensation for that reason.
How Do I Qualify For SMC-S1?
You must have a 100 percent rating and an additional 60% combined rating or more
You also have to be substantially confined to your house or immediate premises because of your service connected disability.
Housebound status is the main criteria that applies to SMC-S.
You may live at home or in a care facility like a hospital ward.
Typically, veterans who are housebound are unable to leave their dwelling due to their service-connected disabilities.
This is typically a permanent circumstance.
