This Disability Benefits Questionnaire (DBQ) is used to assist male veterans in obtaining Special Monthly Compensation level k. This is commonly referred to as SMC(k). An award for SMC(k) is a separate monetary award from the disability rating percentage payment.
This Disability Benefits Questionnaire is available online and accepted by the Veterans Administration because the disability examination falls under the Acceptable Clinical Evidence process. This process was developed by the Office of Disability and Medical Assessment and can be used by disability examiners when the medical evidence that currently exists in the Veteran’s medical record is sufficient to complete the questionnaire along with veteran interview.
Valor 4 Vet does not represent veterans for legal claims, does not provide legal advice, and does not provide medical advice.
