Episode 197: Special Monthly Compensation (SMC T) for TBI: CAVC VA Benefits Case

In this episode of CCK Live, learn about a case CCK argued involving Special Monthly Compensation (SMC) for Traumatic Brain Injuries at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC). SMC allows veterans to be compensated beyond the 100 percent VA disability rate, and one level of SMC exists exclusively for TBIs. Traumatic Brain Injuries can cause a range of debilitating symptoms that impact a veteran’s physical, mental, and emotional well-being. In this case, CCK argued that VA regulations conflict with the statute enacting SMC (t) benefits and that VA has added extra legal requirements, making it more difficult for veterans to qualify for this needed benefit. Tune in to this episode to learn more about this important case and qualifying for SMC (t) benefits for Traumatic Brain Injuries.
