  1. Thanks all for the responses. I think where I was mainly stuck was not on what TDUI actually is but if I can file a new TDUI claim form along with a newly awarded or adjudicated disability, as the VA suggests, or if I was trapped because I have a legacy BVA TDIU appeal awaiting resolution - and has been for years. The change over from the legacy to new system has been confusing me greatly, though so far I think the new system is long overdue.
  2. Thank you for the response. It makes sense that it could be viewed as a new and separate claim.
  3. This may have been answered elsewhere but as a long time lurker I have not been able to find it. A brief background. I am at 80% SC (70% for a mental health disorder, 10% for a couple of physical disabilities). But nearly all of this has been awarded through BVA appeal process that has been on going since 2009. Part of the appeal has been TDIU. In short the RO did not automatically send the 21-8940 to start the process when I hit 70% RO and I didn't know I qualified. Once I did know I appealed and it became a part of the 2009 ongoing BVA appeal, but joined it in about 2014. A social/industrial survey was ordered (2015) but not completed as the social worker at the hospital completing it didn't know what it was (he thought it was a survey of current patients). So the BVA appeal has gone back to the common BVA Remand to RO SSoC to BVA Remand tennis game for a few years. A mess. Here are my current questions: I have been awarded new service connections and ratings since the TDIU denial part joined the appeal. I have also moved, so the 2009 appeal is at the original RO where is any new claim would go to my, now, more local RO. 1). is there any way possible to file for TDIU now, through my local office since new service connected disabilities are present? 2). Just general opinion if you could, but I had been told that it is detrimental to an appeal to request that RO handling the case be changed or moved to the most recent or local RO. Does anyone have any insight if this is actually true? The old RO is a hassle, its keeps sending appointments and decisions to the old address no matter how many times and ways I update my address, for instance. Thanks vets, any help I get I'll try and pay it forward.
