  1. Ok great Berta and Seminoles for all your help. I'll have him to contact his former school regarding this issue. Kevo
  2. This past Friday I received a decision from Department of Veterans Affairs Regional Office regarding a NOD that I had filed nearly two years ago. In October of 2016, I was awarded benefits at 70% retroactively from 2010. About 4 months prior to actually being approved, I requested that I be awarded TDIU as well. After all the dust settled, I was awarded TDIU back to June of 2016. However, my original claim was from January of 2010. As a result, I sent in a NOD requesting that TDIU be retroactive back to 2010.

    I was just mailed a letter from the VA stating that "Entitlement to an earlier effective date for the grant of Individual Unemployability was granted because the evidence shows you last gainfully worked on March 2, 2015... We have assigned an effective date of March 3, 2015, the day after you last worked... This decision represents a partial grant of benefits sought on appeal.

    My questions are:

    (1) Approximately how long before I receive the back pay?

    (2) Should I pursue the amount back to 2010, since the time from 2010 to March 2015, my work record is spottier than Swiss cheese and I really didn't have a consistent work record.

    (3) My son who was awarded Chapter 35 Educational benefits once I received TDIU in December of 2016, had just graduated from college (undergraduate), but was too late to have benefited from Chapter 35. But now since I have a new TDIU retro date dating back to his senior year in college, can he receive back monies for that one final year that he should have been entitled while in school? He has the award going forth, but was wondering if they'd pay him back pay for his last year of college since it now falls under my new onset (TDIU) date. How to proceed if its possible?

     

    Thanks so much in advance for all your help in this matter.

  4. I am so grateful for all the assistance and helpful advice that I have received from the many caring people on this site. Approximately a year ago, I was finally awarded TDIU (IU) through the VA after a long six year battle. As a result I am entitled to all the "bells and whistles," it provides. Fast forward to May 17th of 2017, when I was scheduled to receive my much needed dental implants. I went in for the procedure and met a young dental intern "doctor" who looked to be around 23 years of age. In spite of my nervousness, I allowed her to proceed with the surgery.
