Different Types of 100% VA Disability:

  • 1. 100% Scheduler VA Disability Rating:
    • Based on a combination of individually rated disabilities or a single disability rated at 100%.
  • 2. 100% Permanent and Total (P&T) VA Disability Rating:
    • Indicates disabilities unlikely to improve over time.
    • Involves permanent and total disability based on specific criteria.
  • 3. 100% Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU):
    • Granted when a veteran is unable to secure or maintain substantially gainful employment due to service-connected disabilities.
    • Requires at least one disability rated at 60% or more disabling, or 2 or more disabilities with a combined rating of 70% or more.
  • 4. 100% with Housebound Status SMC(S):
    • Designates a veteran as permanently housebound due to a service-connected disability.
    • Requires meeting criteria, such as having one disability rated at 100% and an additional disability rated at 60% or higher.
  • 5. 100% Special Monthly Compensation (SMC) Category L – O:
    • Involves various situations, including amputation, loss of use of limbs, loss of sight, being permanently bedridden, and more.

    • Temporary 100% disability rating and compensation after surgery or immobilizing treatment.
    • Criteria include a recovery time of at least one month and severe issues resulting from the surgery.

Pro Tips:

  • For TDIU, veterans can qualify with a combined rating of 70% or more, even if no single disability is rated at 60% or more.
  • Veterans may qualify for SMC based on specific situations like amputations, loss of sight, or the need for aid and attendance.

It’s important to note that these rates and criteria can change, and individual circumstances may vary. Veterans are encouraged to consult with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) or a veterans service organization for personalized and up-to-date information.
