    From Jim:

    Yes, it's very likely that your 100% TDIU benefit will allow you to be eligible for most MWR programs. The 100% TDIU rating is generally recognized as being equal to the 100% schedular rating. Many programs like the MWR are selective about whether or not the 100% rating is permanent or temporary. If your 100% TDIU rating is permanent, you should be good to go.

    I'm a 90% plus 10% unemployability and I'm currently receiving SMC in the amount of $3,715 - $300 for mortgage insurance. I have been told that I am also eligible for aid and attendance as well. Right now I'm entitled to 6 hours per week for a person to assist me with bathing and dressing and medicating and preparing my meals. The question that I have is how much is aid and attendance and is that in addition to what I'm already receiving?
    Thank you so much for your assistance!
    Bob

    If I'm 90% and IU, am I entitled to MWR benefits?
