request the 100%schedule Rating From combined IU Rating?


 Calling All Hands on Deck,

Anyone know what the VA Form # is to request the 100% scheduler rating be given & the IU to be moot?

As I understand  when a veteran is rated for combined IU/with P&T and no future exams schedule and his S.C. Disability is of nature not expected to improve in his life time.

The Criteria is,a when veteran has a combined scheduler IU Rating & the veteran has another separate rating of 70% or higher   he can request the 100% scheduler rating....the R.O, is supposed to do this at the time of the separate rating but the fail to do this and the Veteran don't know he can request the IU to be MOOT and given a 100% schedule rating.

This would change things for the veteran  if he was/is able to do some kind of work he could add to his family's income.  & Not be worried about for getting to send in the aggravating 21-4140-1  Every freaking Year.

Anyone know the FORM#?  or more information on this?

asknod, broncovet, Ms berta, j basser, Gastone, Vync, Ms Tbird???  & other knowledgeable members.   please feel free to chime in here.

Hey Buck,
I don't know the specific form number, but I did find these regs regarding IU and working. I'm not sure if they are what you need, but they do include info about going from IU back to work and the provisions required. Hope this helps!

38 CFR 3.343 - Continuance of total disability ratings.

38 U.S. Code § 1163 - Trial work periods and vocational rehabilitation for certain veterans with total disability ratings

If any of your conditions have worsened, then ask for an increase.  Im guessing you want to do this because you fear TDIU will be dropped past your age 65 in the future.  

So, if it eases your fear (even tho its probably unwarranted), then go ahead and ask for an increase on all your disabilitiies that you think have increased OR ask for compensation for "new" primary or secondary disabiities that you may have to try to get the combined total to 100 percent without TDIU.  

Its okay for you to explain in your application you desire an increase to become 100% and "not" TDIU.  

A few years ago I appealed a denial which stated "TDIU is moot" and won.  I expained it was "not moot" because it made me eligible for SMC S under Bradley vs Peake, and that it could result in an earlier effective date.  The board agreed with me, remanded the case and specifically stated that, at least in my case, the issue of TDIU was "not moot".

I have the understanding that when I veteran has another S.C. Disability separate  from His combined IU  ...To use the extra scheduler  and the separate rating is 70% or higher  the R.O. Is suppose to make the IU Moot and give the veteran the 100%schedule rating

I   read this on one of HILL& PONTON (Disability Attorney's) web site

They Do give the statutory SMC S but SMC is not a rating its an addition paid  to a separate S.C. disability. 

A lot of times more times than not   the

R.O. Fails to let the veteran know he can get the 100% schedule rating and request the IU to be moot...but the veteran has to request this.

There is a form for this? I need to know what form #?

What this would do is let the veteran work (IF ABLE TO FIND SOMETHING HE COULD DO) and not have to send in the 21-4140-1......without requesting an Increase.

I understand the increase part but this is a different baby  after the Veteran has a Separate rating 70% or higher and is already getting IU  and is given the 100%schedule rating.

The IU is suppose to be moot  and R.O. Sends out a letter to the Veteran for his EOB. & Letting him know his ratings and what other programs he  may qualify  for.

I have the 90% Combined 90% rating using the extra scheduler and awarded the TDIU P&T  for some unknown reason I was not given the 100% at the time I was Approved for the IU   B/C was a greengo back then and never knew I could request the 100% rating b/c my disability did show the criteria for the 100%rating back then 16 years ago. and Hench the 90% TDIU P&T


  I now have a  have a separate PTSD 70% rating  and was granted the SMC S   since two years now

  R.O. Awarded that with this separate 70% PTSD Rating as a Statutory rating  but failed to make the IU Moot and give the 100%

Although on e benefits EOB it says I have a Final degree of a  100% rating.

      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.


      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.


      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.
