Another Question On Tdiu Retro Pay?

Question

I am still confused about the effective date of TDIU. I was retired in 2001 from a Civllian Job due to SC migraines from hypertension and a non SC conditon as secondary to the Migraines. I had to fight for like 3 years with sporadic results until I was granted SC for migraines secondary to hypertension 30%. I was missing a lot of work from my job with migraine headaches emergency room visits the works. I applied for TDIU in 09/2009 I had my two CMP exams right off the bat and it has been hurry up and wait. I had thought that since I was retired from work for the SC condition Socail Security records show that it was migraines that was one of the reasons my last day worked statement is May 10 2001. I will be happy with the effective date of Novemember 01 2008 as an effective date but I just wanted to nail this down. Thanks so much as my back has gotten worse and I cannot appply for an increase in benfits until this is over a mute point if they grant me with TDIU but I do belive that if I submited my claim on my current back condition would put me over the to regudless of the TDIU with the Artheritis/nueropathy and range of motion that I am dealing with now. Thanks for your thoughts as I am a little squirley here lately. I am 80% right now but from what my civilian Nuero surgeon has stated is that the nerve dammage as shown on MRI by the VA and my back and 3 heriniated disc. The way it is I will only get worse as time progresses. I am 60% for my heart with really bad shortness of breath and no energy at all. My mets are rated at 4 from my CMP exam in 2008. I just wanted an answer or opinion from you guys.. Thanks...

I think they will give you the 9/09 filing date as the TDIU EED.If they make a TDIU award.

Then-if I were you use some of the retro and try get an IMO to get a more favorable TDIU date.You should NOD the decision right away as to the EED assuming they do award the TDIU.

Since the SSA award you get is as I understand it- possibly including NSC conditions. VA will not go with that award date.

Also as I mentioned before the most I have ever seen (and I believe I posted a reg on this recently ) is that VA will possibly go back one year prior to the TDIU form date for the most favorable EED.

You could attempt to prove with an IMO that ALL of the SSA conditions were SC eventually.

Still that would only give the additional year retro that way too.

I always use my husbands claim as example.

1983 SC 30% for PTSD

1993 SSA award for stroke(NSC at that time -became SC under 1151)

1993 We filed Reconsideration Request with SSA

1993 TDIU form filed (never acknoweldeged by VA)

1993 new SSA award solely for PTSD as of 1991

1997 VA award for PTSD 100% P & T - EED 1991

It depends on the medical evidence.

WAIT a Minute- did I just lose months of my life in 2009?

I think you mean you filed in Sept 2008. ?????

I think Berta is right on top of this one, unless a doctor took you off work your EED is when the 2009 date of tdiu was given I guess that was this year some tiime....

      If you are new to hadit and have DIC questions it would help us tremendously if you can answer the following questions right away in your first post.

      What was the Primary Cause of Death (# 1) as listed on your spouse’s death certificate?

      What,if anything, was listed as a contributing cause under # 2?

      Was an autopsy done and if so do you have a complete copy of it?

       It can be obtained through the Medical Examiner’s office in your locale.

      What was the deceased veteran service connected for in his/her lifetime?

      Did they have a claim pending at death and if so what for?

      If they died from anything on the Agent Orange Presumptive list ( available here under a search) when did they serve and where? If outside of Vietnam, what was their MOS and also if they served onboard a ship in the South Pacific what ship were they on and when? Also did they have any major  physical  contact with C 123s during the Vietnam War?

      And how soon after their death was the DIC form filed…if filed within one year of death, the date of death will be the EED for DIC and also satisfy the accrued regulation criteria.

    • If you are a Veteran, represented by MOPH, you need to know that MOPH is closing down its offices.  This can have a drastic effect on your claim, and it wont be good for you.  You likely need to get a new representative.  

      This station confirms MOPH is closing its doors:

    • Examining your service medical records...
      * First thing I do after receiving a service medical record is number each page when I get to the end I go back and add 1 of 100 and so on.

      * Second I then make a copy of my service medical records on a different color paper, yellow or buff something easy to read, but it will distinguish it from the original.

      * I then put my original away and work off the copy.

      * Now if you know the specific date it's fairly easy to find. 

      * If on the other hand you don't know specifically or you had symptoms leading up to it. Well this may take some detective work and so Watson the game is afoot.

      * Let's say it's Irritable Syndrome 

      * I would start page by page from page 1, if the first thing I run across an entry that supports my claim for IBS, I number it #1, I Bracket it in Red, and then on a separate piece of paper I start to compile my medical evidence log. So I would write Page 10 #1 and a brief summary of the evidence, do this has you go through all the your medical records and when you are finished you will have an index and easy way to find your evidence. 

      Study your diagnosis symptoms look them up. Check common medications for your IBS and look for the symptoms noted in your evidence that seem to point to IBS, if your doctor prescribes meds for IBS, but doesn't call it that make those a reference also.

    • How to get your questions answered on the forum
      Do not post your question in someone else's thread. If you are reading a topic that sounds similar to your question, start a new topic and post your question. When you add your question to a topic someone else started both your questions get lost in the thread. So best to start your own thread so you can follow your question and the other member can follow theirs.

      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.


      Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.


      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.



      Leading to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.



      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?



      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?




      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?


      I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?





      This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

      This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
