Re: Just got P&T. Now, does psoriatic arthritis count as 100% for SMC-S? (reply)
I have spent the last hour researching the question and cannot find an answer.  Hopefully, someone else has an answer.  I was researching the question along the lines that they both are related and may fall under one etiology but I...

Re: What does this mean? (reply)
It sounds like your husband is 100% P&T.  Get an account on "E-Benefits" for your husband and look at the letter generator section.  If he has a letter indicating that he is permanent and total, then that answers the question.  As I...

Re: lucky has an IU appeal question (reply)
FYI, Bed rest for your back condition has to be prescribed by your doctor and that may be the issue.  Your statement from the VA should have described why you were not awarded a 60% rating.
