  1. I appreciate the feedback on this. Just curious what people think.
  2. Got a question for anyone that might be able to answer it; Why does a TDIU claim take as long, if not longer than a normal disability claim? For example, if a veteran meets the the basic criteria set by the VA, for example, someone already having met the minimum threshold of 60 to 70%, and can prove that the disability or disabilities obstruct one from being employed, I don't understand why it cannot be processed in a more timely manner. I know as well as anyone here that the backlog is insanely high, but one would figure, that a TDIU claim can be processed a little quicker than most, especially since the vast majority that apply, meet the criteria set. And since the C-file already includes previous evidence as well as C&P or QTC exams that have already established disability, it looks like not that much more is needed, with the exception of attempting to access one's previous employers to establish corroborating evidence, as well as possibly considering P&T rating for said disability or disabilities. Truly, if anyone at the VA had half a brain, why would you not make a more streamlined process for TDIU, and do them like they currently do Nehmer claims? I do not pretend to understand how the VA sets up certain claims, but it would make a lot of sense to have each VARO work specifically on these claims, like how a military "Tiger Team" would work on specific issues, which in theory would lessen the load on others. What say the gurus here?

  6. Carlie, rated PTSD SC 70%, 80% combined overall
  7. John, nope they didn't make mention of TDIU at all. I am still thinking whether I should file or not, as I am still waiting on a deferred decision for my left knee and I want to do a NOD for the denied conditions, as I have more than enough evidence to overturn it. I am still trying to decide which way to go.
  8. Two days after I posted this topic, I received the envelope and was as follows: 70% PTSD (100% overall minus 30%)
  9. After I received my envelope last Thursday, it was in the next day. Congrats!
  10. Carlie, thanks for the info. I'm still trying to figure out if applying for TDIU is still in my best interest at this moment. I will probably figure it out soon.
  11. Phillip, in regards to TDIU, I am still weighing my options. I have heard the horror stories, and although I am not prone into buying everyone, I still want to see if I should wait and file an NOD/DRO for the denied issues first and see where that puts me. I haven't worked in almost a year, but I just want to figure what may be the best course of action to take.
