Housebound

Housebound

Cash payment paid over and above any other compensation or pension payment that may be due, for claimants who are substantially confined to their home or immediate premises (if institutionalized, then ward or clinical area) because of a disability or disabilities. For compensation purposes, a claimant determined to be housebound because of his or her service-connected conditions is entitled to Special Monthly Compensation over and above the 100 percent compensation rate. For pension purposes, an amount over and above the maximum annual pension rate (MAPR) is paid to a claimant determined to be housebound. In making the determination for pension purposes, all conditions, whether service-connected or not, are considered.
